Creating a Christmas Tree with Tinkercad

In 2020, I haven’t painted much, nor have I drawn much. Most of my time being creative was spent in Tinkercad. I used Tinkercad to create a replicate of the Houmas House. I have created many building for my Railroad Town. Other designers are asking “How?” or “Teach me!” Since it is Christmas Time, I decided to provide instructions on how I created a Christmas Tree using Tinkercad. The instructions on instructable: https://www.instructables.com/Designing-a-Christmas-Tree-With-Tinkercad/. Or you can watch the video:

Yes, I also created an angel to go on top of the tree.

You need to watch to video to see how I created the Angel.

Seed of Life

My latest 3D project was to print a sphere with the Seed of Life Design on in.  I created it in Tinkercad; Seed of Life. On the bottom of the object I left a 12 mm hole for a LED light.

It took me numerous attempts to get it printed.  Finally, I had to add supports to the sphere in Cura, the 3d slicing program, to get it to adhere to the plate.  Approximately 10 hours in to the 13 hours print, I noticed the translucent filament that the printer was using was about to run out.  I therefore replaced the filament with white.

Here is the final result.  The printer obviously needs some more adjusting.

After I put the light in the bottom of the sphere, it look so good I made a video.  The video is posted on YouTube.  Seed of Life Video

Here are some pictures with the LED light.
