Join Kacie Hultgren for an in-depth discussion in this video Duplicating shapes, part of Learning Tinkercad.
- [Instructor] Let's explore the options…for duplicating shapes.…Option one, duplicate with the alt or option modifier key.…We'll drag a pyramid onto the work plane,…and focus in on it.…Hold down the alt key on a PC,…or the option key on a Mac,…and then click and drag your pyramid off to the side…to create a duplicate copy.…You can also hold down the shift key…to constrain the motion on one axis.…You can even hold down the alt or option key…while rotating the grips…to create a rotated copy.…
Okay, option two.…We can duplicate with the toolbar or a keyboard shortcut.…I'll select my pyramid here in the center.…I'll choose duplicate or you can use control d…on your keyboard.…Do you see that brief flash of red?…That means that object has been duplicated in place.…There's actually a second copy on top of it.…I'll use my arrow keys to bump that second copy…off to the side.…Okay, finally option number three.…Duplicating the entire design document.…We'll go up to the Tinkercad logo…in the upper left-hand corner.…
We'll mouse over my first design.…
