Join Kacie Hultgren for an in-depth discussion in this video Creating an finial shape, part of Learning Tinkercad.
- [Instructor] This is the final step in our mini project,…creating a finial.…We'll do that by creating an intersection shape.…All right, I'll orbit to the side,…zoom out a bit,…and I'm also going to switch back to perspective view.…I want to align this bottom to the workplane,…I'll do that by rotating it…90 degrees, and then using D to drop it onto the workplane.…Let's check the size.…This is 40mm high,…and it's 34mm wide.…
I want this other side to match,…so click on that grip,…click into the value, and type 34.…Then I want to create a duplicate rotated copy.…I'll hold down either the ALT or the option key,…and drag that rotation grip around 90 degrees…to create a duplicate rotated copy.…And then this second copy,…I will switch into a hole shape.…I also need a box, I'll pull one onto the workplane.…Then I will change the dimensions…so that they match our other objects,…which are 34 by 34 by 40.…
Pull that off to the side.…Okay, select the hole shape,…select the red box.…We use the align tool,…and I'll click on the red box…
