Introduction: Castle in the Sky Scene Using Tinkercad

In this Instructable, I will be guiding you step-by-step to make this Castle in the Sky using Tinkercad software. Tinkercad is a beginner level CAD software that is accessed completely online, so there is no need to download anything. I myself was brand new to Tinkercad when I started this project a few weeks ago, so although this is very detailed, it is not very difficult to execute.

Once you are done with the model, you can keep it as is or choose to 3D print it. I will not be printing this, but if you have a 3D printer at home or are able to access one through a community center, then please do so!

Have fun!

Note: If you are ever confused with the instructions, check the pictures. Each step has a picture that correlates to it. For example, in "Step 1," there are 3 steps and 3 photos. Step 1 corresponds to the first photo, step 2 corresponds to the second photo, and so on. This is the case for every step.

Supplies

- Computer

- Tinkercad account (it's free to use!)

Step 1: Getting Started

1. Go to tinkercad.com, and log in to or create an account. Once you do, you should automatically be taken to the Dashboard. Click 'Create new design', and you will be taken to a new workplane.

2. Let's go over the basic tools and functions of the workplane. Take a look at the second photo for reference.

A. This is the name of your design. You can rename it by clicking on the name and typing a new one in.
B. This is a toolbar that contains features such as copy, paste, duplicate, and delete. The functions I find most useful in this tool bar are the undo and redo button.
C. This is the view square, which allows you to change the angle at which you are looking at your design.
D. This is another tool bar that allows you to bring the angle back to home view, zoom in and out, and switch to orthographic view.
E. The blue grid is called the workplane.
F. This is the final tool bar that allows you to group, ungroup, align, and mirror items.
G. This is the panel that contains the basic model you will use as the building blocks of every design.

3. Rename your design to "Castle in the Sky". This way, you'll know what the file is without having to open it if you ever return to it in the future.

Note: Here is a link to a cheat sheet of keyboard shortcuts that will make designing on Tinkercad easier.

Step 2: Main Castle Body (Part 1)

1. From the panel, click on the 'Box' model and drop it in your workplane.

2. When the box model is selected, a 'Shape' menu will pop up. Click on the 'Solid' button, and a menu of colors will open up. Switch the color menu from 'Presets' to 'Custom'. In the 'Hex #' box, copy and paste f5e8d7 and hit the 'enter' key. This will be the color used for the body of the castle.

3. When you select the box model, another function that shows up are arrows and black and white squares. The rounded arrows allow you to rotate the model, while the cone-shaped arrow at the top of the model allows you to change the vertical location of the model. The white and black squares allow you to change the length, width, and height of the model.

4. Click on one of the white squares in the bottom corner of the box model. When you do this, the length and width of the model shows up. By default, it is 20x20 units. Change it to 40x20 units either by dragging the square or typing the values in.

5. Click on the white square that shows up on the top of the box model. When you do this, the height of the model shows up, which is 20 units by default. Change it to 60 units so that the dimensions of the box are 40x20x60 units.

Step 3: Main Castle Body (Part 2)

In this part, we will make a model for the window.

1. Place a 'Box' model and make the dimensions 5x5x5 units.

2. Place a 'Cylinder' model, which can be found directly next to the 'Box' model in the panel. Make the dimensions 5x5x5 units as well.

3. Rotate the cylinder 90 degrees by clicking one of the top rounded arrows.

4. Raise the cylinder up by 2.5 units by clicking on the cone-shaped arrow on top of the model.

5. Move the cylinder on top of the cube, as shown in the fifth photo.

6. Group the two models together by clicking and dragging over the two shapes and clicking the 'Group' button in the top right toolbar. This will combine the two models into one, making them the same color.

7. Make the model a hole by clicking on the 'Hole' button that shows up on the 'Shape' menu.

Note: Make sure to keep at least one copy of each model you make because it might be used in future sections of the project.

Step 4: Main Castle Body (Part 3)

1. Copy and paste the window model twice and make them 40 units long.

2. Raise the windows up by 3.75 units. Place them in the center of the box model, two units apart from each other, as the second photo shows.

3. Repeat the previous step but at 18.75, 33.75, and 48.75 units tall.

4. Select the box and windows and group them together. This creates windows in the box.

5. Copy and paste the model four times and line them up together, as shown in the fifth photo. Later on, when we group the models together, the lines in between them will be gone.

Step 5: Main Castle Body (Part 4)

Step 23: Castle Entrance (Part 5)

1. Place a 'Cylinder' model and make it 15x15x60 units. Change it to the body color.

2. Place a 'Cone' model and make it 17x17x17 units. Change it to the body color and flip it upside down. Raise it by 45 units and place it on the cylinder. This is the base of another tower.

3. Place a 'Cylinder' model and make it 17x17x3 units. Change it to the body color. Raise it by 62 units and place it on the tower.

4. Copy a few more window models. Change the length to 17 units. Raise four of them by 3.75 units and place them at the angles 0, 45, 90, and 135. Do this at the heights 18.75, 33.75, and 48.75 units as well. Group it with the tower.

5. Place a 'Cylinder' model and make it 13x13x60 units. Change it to the body color. Place it in the tower and group them together.

6. Place a 'Cone' model and make it 17x17x12 units. Change it to the roof color. Raise it by 65 units and place it on the tower.

7. Copy and paste a second tower and place them on the corners of the entrance, as shown in the seventh photo.

Step 24: Castle Base

1. Group together all of the body colored models. This will get rid of a lot of the lines in between different sections of the building.

2. Raise the whole castle by 50 units.

3. Place a series of wedges, cones, and pyramids to create a base for the caste that extends outwards. Make the color of the base ada395. Group the base together. Check the third photo for clarity. It's okay if there are slight gaps because those will be filled in later. For reference, the bottom of my base extends 20 units past the top.

4. Raise the whole castle and base by 100 units. Place a 'Sphere' models of different sizes to create a cloud. The cloud can by either white or a light blue. I used f2fcff. I used spheres that are 40x40x40 units.

5. Place a 'Box' model and make it 60x110 units (the height doesn't matter). Change it to the floor color. Raise it to the height of the floor, as shown in the fifth image.

6. I raised the whole model up by 200 units so that it looks like it's more up in the sky.

Step 25: Making a Rainbow (Optional)

1. Place a 'Tube' model and make it 500x500x5 units. Change the wall thickness to 1 unit in the shape menu that pops up when the model is selected.

2. Change the color of the tube to red. I made it the hex color ff0017. Make the model transparent by clicking the 'Transparent' box that shows up in the shape menu under the hex color box.

3. Place a new 'Tube' model and make it 449.2x449.2x5 units. Change the wall thickness to 1 unit, and make the color ff9500. Make the shape transparent, and place it in the other tube.

4. Place a new 'Tube' model and make it 400x400x5 units. Change the wall thickness to 1 unit, and make the color fffd2b. Make it transparent, and place it in the tubes.

5. Place a new 'Tube' model and make it 350x350x5 units. Change the wall thickness to 1 unit, and make the color 0af200. Make it transparent, and place it in the tubes.

6. Place a new 'Tube' model and make it 315x315x5 units. Change the wall thickness to 1 unit, and make the color 6173ff. Make it transparent, and place it in the tubes.

7. Place a new 'Tube' model and make it 278x278x5 units. Change the wall thickness to 1 unit, and make the color 901ff5. Make it transparent, and place it in the tubes.

8. Place a 'Box' model and make it 500x500x5 units. Change it to a hole and copy and paste six of them. Place the holes and group one with each of the rings so that there is only have of the tubes left over. Make sure you don't group the tubes together because the colors of the tubes will change. Check the eighth photo for clarity.

9. Rotate the rainbow 90 degrees so that it is perpendicular to the workplane. Raise the rainbow by 445 units and rotate it by 50 degrees. Place it slightly behind the castle, and rotate the castle by 22.5 units.

10. Play around with the height and width of the rainbow to make it the shape that you like.

11. Use the same technique to make the clouds as you did for the castle. I made the spheres 50x50x50 units and made the color the same as the other clouds. Do this on either end of the rainbow.

Step 26: More Clouds! (Optional)

1. Now just add a few more clouds around the castle and rainbow. I made the spheres 40x40x40 units. This will just make the scene look more finished.

Step 27: Congrats! You're Done!

Congratulations! You have finished the Castle in the Sky. I hope you enjoyed creating this, or at the very least, like what you have created.

Thank you!
