3D Design Pupil Activity Pack 
What will you learn?
Use and adapt 3D shapes to build a small town/village​ using computer-aided design tools.
What will you need?
The TinkerCAD website and a login (ask your grown-up or teacher)

  1. Understanding 3D Space
    Go to this website and try to create the same 3D designs that are in the bottom right, in your bigger 3D plan.
    ​Use the different tools at the bottom to help, such as the +/- to zoom in/out, the pick axe to delete blocks, the rubbish bin to clear all your blocks. Once you think you have copied the design, then click on the tick and if correct, click on the grid on right hand side to move onto the next level.   

2. TinkerCAD Controls
Watch the video tutorial to learn about the controls in the TinkerCAD website .

3. Use 3D shapes to build a row of houses 
Use cubes and square-based pyramids to build a row of houses by changing the size, colour, height and using duplicate tools.
Use the video tutorial to help you. 

4. Other buildings
Use the skills used to build the houses to create other types of buildings such as a garage on the side of the house, church and factory using other 3D shapes.

5. Add gardens, roads and paths 
Use the cube and adjust the height to as low as it will go to create gardens, roads and paths.
Use the video tutorial to help you.

6. Windows and Doors
Use the cubes to create windows and doors for the houses by adjusting their thickness and height. Could you use the cylinder to add a clock to the church?


You could try to use your skills to re-create the solar system using sphere shapes of different sizes, position and text labels.
