Designing a Simple Phone Holder in TinkerCAD (Beginner)

A short tutorial on how to use TinkerCAD to create a simple phone holder targeted at beginners.

Materials

Step 1

Place a wedge from the basic shapes into your workplane.

Step 2

Change the width (x axis) and length (y axis) to 50mm. Furthermore, raise the height (z axis) to 45mm.

Change the width (x axis) and length (y axis) to 50mm. Furthermore, lower the height (z axis) to 45mm.

Step 3

Duplicate the wedge by clicking the duplicate button or using the keyboard shortcut CRTL + D with the shape selected. Using the mirror tool (M) to flip the duplicated shape, making it face the original shape (see picture).

Step 4

With the duplicated wedge selected, change the width (x axis) to 13mm and the height (z axis) to 10mm.

	<p>With the <i>larger</i> wedge selected, <strong>duplicate</strong> it and change it to a <strong>hole</strong>. Change the <strong>width</strong> <i>(x axis)</i>, <strong>length</strong> <i>(y axis)</i>, and <strong>height</strong> <i>(z axis)</i> to <strong>45mm by 50mm by 40mm</strong>, respectively.</p>

With the larger wedge selected, duplicate it and change it to a hole. Change the width (x axis), length (y axis), and height (z axis) to 45mm by 50mm by 40mm, respectively.

Step 6

Selecting the larger wedge and the holed wedge, align them so there is even spacing on the back wall and hypotenuse of the wedge (see picture).

Pro tip: You can use the align tool to evenly center the two wedges.

Step 7

Make sure all shapes are aligned (their x axis are parallel); select all shapes, by either drag-clicking with the mouse, or using CTRL + Click to multi-select shapes. Group the objects using CTRL + G, or clicking the group button at the top right of the interface. Congratulations! You have completed your simple phone holder.

Make sure all shapes are aligned (their x axis are parallel), select all the shapes and group them together (CTRL + G). Congratulation! You have made a simple phone stand
