This tutorial is how to make a Space telescope in 123D Design.
I am making this tutorial as part of my class work and entering it into the 123D Design challenge.
In this tutorial I have not specified units for the measurements for the units as it does not matter as long as you use the same unit for each shape.
I apologize if the tutorial is hard to follow or poor quality as my class was only given 4 days to complete our entries.
Please note that I remade the solar panels at the end as I could not colour them properly the way I was originally making them.
Step 1: Make a 50 by 10 cylinder and rotate it 90?
Step 2: Make a 15 by 50 cylinder and snap it to the end of the other cylinder. This is the back of the telescope
Step 3: Make a 3 by 50 cylinder and a 3 by 70 cylinder. These are the poles to hold the solar pannels and the dishes.
Step 4: Rotate the short cylinder and align it to the edge of the thick cylinder with 10 units hanging out on each side
Step 5: Rotate the long cylinder and align it to the edge of the thick cylinder with 20 units hanging out on each side
Step 6: Insert two 5 by 5 cones
Step 7: Place the cones on the long poles with the wide face towards the back
Step 8: Insert two 5 unit spheres and Intersect them with the cones.
Step 9: Use the subtract function to create dents in the cones.
Step 10: Inset ten 8 by 3 by 8 rectangular prisims, three 2 by 3 by 52 rectangular prisims and six 18 by 3 by 2 rectangular prisims. These will form a solar pannel
Step 11: Stack the new prisims like the image.
Step 12: Duplicate the solar pannel and place them on the ends of the short poles.
Step 13: Rotate the solar pannels -30 degrees
Step 14: Insert two 22 by 1 by 52 rectangular prisms and place them at the back of the solar pannels
Step 15: Insert a 9 by 25 cylinder and place it in front of the telescope
Step 16: Move the cylinder so it is inside the front of the telescope.
Step 17: Use the subtract function to create a hole in the front of the telescope
Step 18: Insert a 10 by 2 cylinder and place it ajacent to the front opening. This is the lens cap.
Step 19: Set the material of the body, poles, cones and lens cap to iron and the colour to #797979
Step 20: Set the material of the long parts and back of the solar pannel to iron and the colour to #4A4A4A and the material of the square parts of the solar pannels to aluminium and the colour to #161AE6.
