Step 2: Repeat the Process

Let's try that one more time. Go ahead and add another cylinder to the workplane.

  2. You've got it. Great work!

Step 3: Scale Your Cylinder

Now here's the fun part! You are going to scale the orange cylinder you just dragged onto the workplane to a height of 15mm.

Instructions

  1. Click and drag the white dot on top of the shape. Drag down to make the shape 15mm.
  2. There you go, you got it!

Step 4: Copy & Paste the Last Shape

Let's add one more cylinder. This time let's copy one of the cylinders that is already on the workplane.

Instructions

  1. Select the cylinder you want to copy. It doesn't matter which cylinder you select.
  2. Press Ctrl+C on your keyboard (Windows) or Cmd+C (Mac) to copy the shape.
  3. Then, press Ctrl+V on your keyboard to paste the copy on the workplane.
  4. Drag the new shape to the area outlined in orange.
  5. Continue to the next step.

Step 5: Scale the Last Cylinder

The last cylinder needs to be 10mm tall.
