Creating a Frustum for 3D Printing using TINKERCAD

TINKERCAD is web-based 3D modeling software that allows you to create objects for 3D printing. In TINKERCAD, you can build a frustum by starting with a solid pyramid and subtracting a “hole” from the top of that pyramid.

The following video provides a demonstration.

Volumes can be added (like when we finished the pyramid).

In this video demonstration, a cylinder and a hemisphere (half-sphere) are combined to form a new volume.

FUTURE WORK: What equation do we get when we add a hemisphere to cylinder as we did in the video?

CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.HSG.GMD.A.3: Use volume formulas for cylinders, pyramids, cones, and spheres to solve problems.
