Based on the work by Design, Make, Teach, I was inspired to create a simple web app that would simplify the process of creating a marker drawing to an SVG for import into TinkerCad. This is my first crack at a solution.

See what others have made with Doodle Fab.

This app was tested by the educators that joined me for the Digital Harbor Foundation 3D for Educators workshop and named by Troy (an attendee in the workshop).

You must allow this website access to your webcam for this to work.
