Introduction: Cuenca's Llamas


For this project called Cuenca's llamas, I decided to recreate one of Cuenca's most iconic animals, and symbols: a llama. While doing this design I decided to make it simple yet understandable, so this way students, teachers, or anyone can make this easy and fun project.


  • A computer (desktop, laptop, tablet, etc.)
  • Tinkercad- web application (

Step 1: Step 1

First, I created a design and chose a place where i would build my llama. Then, I used the “box” shape for the body, and extended it until it looked like a rectangle. After that, I selected the shape and curved the edges until they were round and blunt. I colored it white.

Step 2: Step 2

I used a circle for the llama's neck. Then, I extended it, and made it slimmer (You can do this step to your preference), then I placed it in the front, central part of the rectangle. After that, I selected the scribble tool, and made a squiggle for the llama’s body, and placed 5 on each side of different sizes.This would represent the “hair”. I colored both the lightest shade of gray.

Step 3: Step 3

For the llama’s legs, I used 4 paraboloids and placed them on each corner of the body, making sure the top part entered the body. Once there, I selected them and made them thicker so they look similar to the real llama’s legs. I colored them the middle shade of grey.

Step 4: Step 4

Next, I used a circle for the head, and elongated the sides until it had an oval shape, after that, place a smaller oval on the tip of the head to resemble the nose. And finally, use 2 paraboloids for the ears on the top corners of the head.Make them small and increase the steps on them to the max. I colored the ears a dark gray, and the 2 ovals white.

Step 5: Step 5

For the last step, place 2 small spheres on the tip of the head, after that use the scribble tool to draw the tip of the nose, the mouth, and eyelashes. In this step, you can also draw the tail like i did. You do this by choosing the scribble tool.


  1. The eyes, and eyelashes: black.
  2. The tip of the mouth :the second shade of gray.
  3. The mouth: black
  4. Tail: the second shade of gray

And that’s it for our llama! I hope you enjoyed doing this project as much as I did, and thank you for following along! :)
