Here, you will learn how to make an F-117 NightHawk
Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Getting Started
The things you need...
- A 3D printer
- 3D modeling/printing program (preferably tinkercad.com)
Step 2: Building a Base
First, you want to build a base for your jet.
I used a three-sided pyramid for this, the inputs are...
Use the scale tool and put it at X=4, Y=4, and Z=-0.3
Step 3: Shaping Your Jet
Now, you will want to shape your jet to whatever shape you want.
You will want to make the blocks you're using clear/transparent. This allows it to cut out that shape.
The picture above shows the code that I used so you can use it if you want or you can get creative.
When you have the shapes where you want them you must put a create group with the multicolor selected, (This is what makes it get cut out)
Step 4: Building a Cockpit
This step will be the most important. You will want to add whatever shapes you want to create it but I used two cylinders and a sphere.
You can use the code that I put together if preferred.
Step 5: Optional
You don't have to do this but I did to not make it look as plain. For this, I used two rounded roofs.
I have the code up top if you would like to use it or you can wig it. (Do you like my puns?)
Step 6: Tail
This is the tail of the plane.
There is code up top that is used to create this, but also remember that there is a clear piece and it needs a create group block to cut the shape.
Step 7: Finished Product
Now, you have successfully created an F-117 NightHawk!
Since you put it on Tinkercad you are able to put it on an SD chip to be put in a 3D printer.
