This extensive list of tools and projects are great for learning and can be extremely useful for media creators and artists.
Arduino: Basic electronic maker.
Raspberry Pi: Extremely small computers that you can program however you want.
PCPartPicker: Helps the user put together a blueprint of compatible computer hardware and shows price trends and how much the parts cost.
RealityCapture: Photogrammetry software for creating 3D models, faster and better with larger numbers of photos but need to purchase after the demo.
Tinkercad: Basic version of Autodesk software, useful for simple 3D modeling. Autodesk makes the (largely) 2D drafting software AutoCAD.
123D: Medium-powered version of Autodesk 3D modeling.
Cura: Preparation software for 3D printing.
Fusion 360: Robust Autodesk 3D modeling. Three-year student and educator license.
Blender: Free and robust, but like Fusion 360 and Maya professional--supports the entire 3D "pipeline."
Smithsonian Collection: Ready for printing 3D scans from the Smithsonian.
