Tinkercad Alternatives?

Tinker Teacher

Rascal The Dog – Lucie A question was recently raised about whether there are any alternatives to Tinkercad as a classroom 3D modeling tool.

If Tinkercad weren’t available, didn’t occupy this footprint, then I’m quite certain that there would be some other product in the market today.
