Join Kacie Hultgren for an in-depth discussion in this video Copying shapes, part of Learning Tinkercad.
- [Instructor] There's more than meets the eye…with Tinkercad's copy and paste options.…Let's explore the basics and some hidden pro tips…to take your workflow to the next level.…I'll start by dragging three pyramids on to the Workplane.…I'll click, hold down the Shift key,…and drag the grip to scale this one to 10 millimeters.…And then the last one, click, hold down Shift,…and scale it up to 30.…Okay, time to copy/paste.…
Select the small pyramid.…Then, go up to the toolbar and click Copy, then click Paste.…Let's try it with a medium one.…Select the pyramid, copy, paste.…So note that the copied offset distance is different.…It's half the shape's width and it's always placed…to the right.…Let's try one more time.…I'll select the large pyramid.…This time I'll use the keyboard shortcuts,…Control + C to copy and Control + V to paste.…
I'll do it a couple more times.…Then I'll orbit and change my view.…Hit Control + V again.…Orbit and change my view and tap it again.…See how the placement changes, depending on the view?…
