Advanced mode has programming blocks for quickly repeating objects in a linear or ciculular pattern. The
turn block below creates a circular pattern by rotating a set of objects along an axis. In this case we specified that there should be
12 repetitions each
30 degrees apart and with a radius of
50 along the
move repetition block you can specify the number of repetitions, the amount of movement in each repetition and the direction of movement. Inside the body we include the statements from the previous step.
By adding a
cylinder the shape now looks like a grinder. You can easily change the number of blocks or the size of the block.
By using a
subtract operation we subtract the pattern of blocks from the cylinder to make holes. Another cylinder is subtracted to create an circular hollow shape with holes, resembling a bin.
