How to Make and Assemble Objects in Tinkercad’s Codeblocks: Divide, Simulate, Assemble (DSA)

  1. Codeblocks includes a simulator. You can press the Run button for an object (a part) and see if it is what you expect.
  2. Many of Codeblock’s shape objects include parameters. The value of a parameter can be easily changed.
  3. You can adjust the design of a part by using the simulator in connection with changing parameter values.
  4. Codeblocks’s simulator allows you to visualize the assembly process.
