Bring your design to life! 

There are 3 computers available on the Rider campus with the Solidworks system. You can find 2 computers in the Rider library and 1 in the Center for Entrepreneurial Studies. 


Tinkercad is an easy-to-use 3D Cad design tool. You can log into the program from any computer. We believe that this tool will be more accessible to students wishing to create 3D models.
