According to Wikipedia Googly Eyes are: “Googly eyes, or wiggle eyes, are small plastic crafting items used to imitate eyeballs. Googly eyes traditionally are composed of a white plastic or card backing covered by a clear, hard-plastic shell, encapsulating a black plastic disk. The combination of a black circle over a white disk mimics the appearance of the sclera and pupil of the eye to humorous effect. The inner black disk is allowed to move freely within the larger clear plastic shell, which makes the eyes appear to move when the googly eyes are tilted or shaken.”
Tinkercad has some amazing 3D Designs created by some talented people. Looking at these designs, you can’t help to say “Wow!” Instead of trying for the “Wow” factor, I went with the “Fun” factor. Googly Eyes are fun, but they can also be spooky. It all depends on how they are used.
Instructions are available on Instructables on how to create Googly Eyes in Tinkercad and place them on existing designs. Link: Creating Googly Eyes with Tinkercad
Previously, I created a sunflower using Tinkercad Codeblocks. (You may copy the Codeblock Sunflower file.) This would be a good design for the Googly Eye instructions. I exported as a Shape to be used in 3D Design.
I created a new design and place the sunflower into the design, by selecting the shape from Your Creations on the Shape Panel.
Next, I created the Googly Eyes. These Googly Eyes consist of 4 shapes: three half spheres and one sphere.
I moved the resized and moved the Googly Eyes into position. It looked so strange with just the eyes, so I created it a mouth.
The mouth is a flatten sphere hole that was group with the sunflower. The Googly Eyes Sunflower file is not available for copying, because creating your own is usually fun and will be a learning experience. See the instructions or watch the videos to create you own.
There are two designs available for copying: Shape Bots and Googly Eyes on Shapes
Notice how the Googly Eyes are different shapes and sizes, and looking in various directions. How fun creating your own Googly Eyes.
