How to Scale Objects

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

A selected object has white and black handles that allow you to scale an object. Black handles will scale only on one axis. White handles will scale on two axis at a time.

  1. Select the tomato slice and move it on top of the lettuce.
  2. Use the handles to scale the tomato so that its diameter is about half of the burger patty's. Holding SHIFT while scaling will scale the object equally on all axis at the same time.
  3. Go to Edit>Duplicate to make another tomato slice.
