Do you want to build a snowman?

Beginner video for creating your own 3D models using TinkerCAD. Tips on how to line up objects, remove parts creating a hole and how to set the colour. Also suggestions on making it more stable whilst on a 3D printer.

3D printed snowman now available on Thingiverse.

I created this using TinkerCAD - designed to be approximately G-Scale suitable for an outdoor / garden model railway.

It has a hollow body (if you remove the central cylinder) which means you can put an LED inside to and turn it into a light-up Christmas decoration.

Here's designs for my first version of a 3D printed building for G-Scale model railways.

I'm working on version 2, with window frame, tile effect on the roof and possibly a surprise extra feature.

My latest project is a long term project. Building an outdoor G-Scale garden model railway with my son.

I'm planning to include outdoor track builds, 3D printed scenic items, electronics and some programming.

I'll be adding to this over the next few months.

Here's a memory card game I've created using Pygame Zero.

Cards are all based on photographs from the English Lake District.
