Making Gradient Design in Tinkercad




Introduction: Making Gradient Design in Tinkercad

About: I am a novice cad designer and I own a Prusa i3 MK3. I design things in tinkercad and fusion 360. I also do some coding and electronics. Working on a few other projects probably will be up on instructables eve…

This is how to make your tinkercad design gradient.

Step 1: Pick Object

I chose my star twisting flowerpot.

Step 2: Gradient Cylinder

I made a gradient cylinder witch was very tough so I am not going to get into it here is a link if someone needs it

first version (used in this instructable)

second version

you could also use a normal gradient what is usually a cube that fades

I would go to look at elok's designs first but here is a cube if you need it

then I duplicated it moved it up and twisted it (this step is optional only use with cylinder)

you may or may not need to scale up depending on design

Step 3: Make Large Cube

Make a cube large enough to fit gradient in it.

Step 4: Align and Group

  • Turn star pot into hole
  • align with cube
  • group
  • turn cube into hole
  • align with gradient
  • group

Step 5: Finished

That is everything if you want to have it printed you should be able to get it in full color depending on design.

really neat! Although, how in step number one did you get the star shape?
