Introduction: Baños De Agua Santa - Ambato
Have you ever wanted to do a model of a tourist place you’ve visited? In this instructable I will teach you how I did a model of a waterfall that represents “El pailón del diablo”, a path of seven waterfalls that ends with the biggest one — Rio Verde's waterfall — which height is over 80 meters.
Step 1: Step 1: Thinking About the Design and Starting a Base.
To make your desired model, you have to think about the place you want to do, and what represents it. Is there something specific from that place that you love? Is there something that catches the attention of the tourists the most? Let your creativity flow, and think in what way you can represent the magic of that place.
Once you’ve got an idea, you can start with a base. In the case of my waterfall, we’ll start with a blue square as big as the original base of tinkercad, or even bigger. Then we’ll grab the “scribble tool” and make a triangle-like shape, trying to recreate some rocky edges. We’ll make two of them. The shortest will be bigger, because that way we’ll create a second and smaller waterfall.
Step 2: Step 2: Perfecting Your Base Model.
Now we will start building little by little our model, first the simple things, then the complex ones. From bottom to top.
We will go to the tool bar and click on “basic forms”, search the shape generators and click the second option. In page number 17 we will choose the rock mountain. Now we are gonna flatten the rocks in a way when we put the water only the pointy tips will show, and place them where we want them to be. Now we will grab the pink mosaic tool next to the rock mountain tool and place some of them in the edges of our brown mountains. We will paint them green, and it will be vegetation on the surroundings. Now, we will take the “terrain tool” and paint it blue. We will put it where the rocks were, it will simulate the water flowing through those channels. Then we will take “fractal II tool” and will also paint it blue. Let’s add some height to it, as it will also simulate the water.
Step 3: Step 3: Finale Details
Now we will make two big brown rectangles. They will be the base of our suspension bridge. We will go back to basic forms again and choose the roof, rotate it and use it as a platform for the bridge. We’ll go back again to the second option of shape generator, to page 10 and use cycloid to make the bridge, I used a darker brown, but you can use the color you want. With two more cycloids we’ll make the railings, and using the cristal in page 12 I added more security to my bridge, but you can decorate it as you want. I also added the last object in page 12 for my decoration and final detail.
Step 4: Step 4: Done!
Now, your waterfall that represents “El pailón del diablo” is done!! But we are not done here yet.
Step 5: If Aim for Something Simpler...
If you really aim for something simpler, you can just choose an easier position for your model, and make just one waterfall. Remember to be creative and play around with the tools you can use for your models.
