I created this creepy-looking Halloween candy bowl using Tinkercad (for the first time in my life). I modified images and used the tools available on Tinkercad's site to create the final candy bowl. In this Instructable, I will take you through the process I used to make it. It was easier than I would have imagined - and I like that you can import 3d images from other sources to modify and help create your final product. If you've never used Tinkercad before, I'll try to give helpful tips and things I learned through this basic project!

Step 1: Starting Out with Tinkercad & Importing Images

The first thing I did with was search both Tinkercad's gallery and online for a basic 3d head model I could use. On the Tinkercad site, you can download & "tinker" with the models available on their site. But, I actually found the basic 3d head model on a site called Turbosquid. Thank you to the creator who has made it available to the public for free - Leah Apanowicz.

If you want to search the web for a file to import into Tinkercad, you'll need to search for a .STL file type. There is a link on the right-hand side which says "import" so you can either upload the file or import directly from a URL.

Once imported, you can click on the image and move it around and increase the size to your specifications. You can also rotate it and move it in all sorts of directions.
Awesome! Congratulations for winning 1st place :D <br> <br>Now adding red LEDs for the eyes and a flame thrower mechanism will surely scare the hell out of visitors. I can't wait till next year's Halloween!
Thank you SO MUCH! :) Love your ideas! :)
