STEM Challenge: Transmission Tower
What You'll Need
1 Print the stencil and gather your materials
Print out our Transmission Tower stencil, and gather your supplies and materials including your Create+ Pen, Create+ filament, and Create+ DoodlePad (if you are using one).
2 Doodle the 8 individual pieces
Start by Doodling all eight individual pieces labeled A, B & C.
3 Connect the four C pieces to form the base of the tower
Take two of the four large tower legs (labeled C on the stencil) and connect them so that they make up half of the base of the tower. Protip: using the edge of a table can be helpful. Repeat this step with the remaining two C pieces.
4 A look at the base of the tower
The completed look of the base of the tower once you've connected all four of the bottom legs.
5 Connect pieces A & B together
Connect the A and B pieces together. Protip: using the edge of a table can be helpful. Repeat with the remaining two pieces.And then connect the two sections to complete the top of the tower.
6 Fully constructed top of the tower

7 Last step: connect the tips of the triangles
Connect the triangular "wings" by adding a bit of filament in between the tips and pressing them together.
8 Connect the base with the top of the tower
Connect the base section of the structure with the top section of the structure, and voila, you now have a fully built transmission tower!
