Can this be done in Tinkercad? Answered

I need to make a cylinder, where the top of the cylinder is one size and the bottom of the cylinder is another size. For example: the top of the cylinder needs to be 10mm and the bottom needs to be 8mm. Is this possible in Tinkercad?

I think the easiest way to do it would be to make a cylinder, then make a cone (turned into a hole) and adjust the height of the cone so that the circular cutout on top is the desired diameter. If you're trying to do something precise, you might want to try Fusion 360 which you can learn about in the 3D-Printing-Class.

Here's a quick demo of how to do it roughly in Tinkercad.
