The projects going out next week come as a result of teacher requests and feedback. So I hope everyone can find something useful in this batch! If you haven't yet subscribed, you can sign up here.
Google Earth Tours
This project shows how to create an annotated, guided tour around some landmarks of Washington, DC, using buildings that are already in Google Earth. No programming is necessary; all you need is the free version of Google Earth.
One of last month's projects showed how to create a rocket. This time you'll learn how to add windows to the front and back, using a cylinder and the Intersect Faces tool.
Torus, and Other Round Things
I get asked all the time how to create objects like a torus, cone, or sphere. These are easy, once you get to know the Follow Me tool. In addition to creating a torus (aka, doughnut), you'll see how to create other shapes using a Follow Me path.
There's no reason not to sign up - it's just $36 for the year (3 projects each month for 12 months). You'll never be stuck for ideas again!
