12oz soda bottle


Step 4: Begin to 3D Print Your Pieces Using the 3D Modeler You Used Earlier.

make sure to watch the printer while it works

Step 5: Take Your Foam Board and Cut Out a 7x7 Inch Piece.

use the box cutter

Use enough coats so it is no longer transparent.

Step 12: Glue Everything Down

Glue the bottle (AKA the “hill”), to the back left corner of the green area

Hot glue the little hills/ objects you designed and 3D printed earlier in desired pattern. (Make sure they stay on the green part of the foam board though.)

Step 13: (optional)

Cut out 3 7x7 inch squares

Paint one side light blue (Repeat for all three boards.)

Take a fluffy paintbrush, add a small amount of white paint, and dab it in a cloud-like motion.
