In Tinkercad, one can go with 3D designing or Circuit making. There is a new feature Codeblocks, it will help you to design with codes. There is a section called Lessons which saves all lessons you have attempted.

Different Modes

There are two modes other than 3D are brick and block modes.

The Bricks Workspace in Tinkercad takes your model, reads the basic design, breaks it block-shaped pieces and rebuilds it using individual bricks, layer-by-layer.

The Blocks Workspace in Tinkercad allow you to change the materials for each object as you would like them to be in Minecraft. Just click the material to change it.
