Join Kacie Hultgren for an in-depth discussion in this video Creating scaled patterns, part of Learning Tinkercad.
- [Instructor] Have you heard of fractals…or the Fibonacci Sequence?…With scale, patterns and Tinkercad,…we can create these interesting patterns.…I'll start by adding a box to the workplane.…Then I'll duplicate this object…and click and drag it off to the side,…holding down shift to keep it constrained.…I'll hold down shift and then also the option key…so this object will scale uniformly from the center,…and then I'll click duplicate a few more times…and get a series of boxes descending in scale.…
Let's delete those extra boxes…and try this one more time.…I'll duplicate the box.…I'll pull it out to the side,…hold down shift and option…and click and drag to reduce the size…and then I'll also rotate…and shift the position…and duplicate again.…
