    If you've browsed the Shape Generators lately, you may have seen some really, really awesome additions by DavidReeves - US States Generator allow you to create extrusions of any US State in Tinkercad!

    David's awesome Generator allows you to select the state and drag it in the Tinkercad Editor.  We thought that was pretty cool, but then we saw the next one - Europe Maps raises the bar and allows you to Tinker any EU country!

    HERE'S YOUR CHALLENGE: Make a model of a state or country's most notable landmark and use the Generator to create the base!

    In the Tinkercad Editor, click the Shape Generators dropdown, then Community.  Drag a Generator to the workplane and customize using the Inspector.
