Introduction: Creating the Eyes

The following information is a single lesson in a larger Tinkercad project. Check out this and more projects on Tinkercad.

Lastly, to finish the alligator we will create the eyes.


  1. Place a sphere and wedge on the workplane.
  2. Rotate the wedge so that the top points towards the sphere.
  3. Align the sphere and wedge together on by clicking the tab shown in the image.
  4. Scale the base to increase the height of the wedge's base. Make the wedge a hole. Move the wedge into the sphere until the grey shape on the sphere is similar in size as shown in the image (outlined in green)
  5. Select both the wedge and sphere, and group them together to make the eye lid.
  6. Select both the yellow eye at the side of the workplane and the eye lid and choose Adjust>Align.

  7. Left click on the eye lid once so that the eye moves to the eye lid.
  8. Select the center tab on the X, Y, and Z axis.
  9. Change the color of the eye lid to green.
  10. Select all of the objects that make the eye and group them together.
  11. Make a copy of the eye and mirror it to the other side.
  12. Congratulations, you finished making an alligator!
  13. Congratulations! You made it!
