Step 4: Grab Another Shape

Let's add a cone this time.

Instructions

Rotate and position the cone.

Instructions

  1. Rotate the cone 180 degrees.
  2. Move it to the target area in orange.

Step 14: Add a New Workplane

Let's move the workplane.

Instructions

  1. Drag a workplane to the top of the cone. (which is really the bottom of the cone you just flipped)

Step 15: Add a Sphere

Add another sphere to the workplane.

Instructions

  1. Drag a sphere shape to the workplane.

Step 16: Size the Sphere

Let's get the sphere sized right.

Instructions

  1. Scale the sphere to 8x8x8mm.
  2. Tip: Holding shift on the keyboard will scale the shape in all directions.

Step 17: Reset the Workplane

Let's clear or reset the workplane.

Instructions

  1. Drag a workplane to the original location of the workplane.
  2. Tip: Place the workplane anywhere, except on a shape to reset it.

Step 18: Align the Shapes
