5Make a “2x4” piece of lumber. Draw a rectangle that is 3mm thick x 110mm long.110mmPULL your rectangle up 10mm.3mm
6Double check the measurements with dimension lines but then delete them. You’ll see why in a minute...
7To make sure every piece of this shape stays together, draw a box around it or choose “Edit -> “Select All”, then “Edit -> “Make Group”.
8You could copy and paste the first 2”x4” until you had enough for a wall, BUT, it takes a lot of time to get them all an equal distance apart. There has got to be a better way!
91. With the MOVE tool selected, hold the CTRL key down. 2 1. With the MOVE tool selected, hold the CTRL key down. 2. Click on the first 2”x4”.3. Move your mouse to the right and you will see a copy of the first 2”x4”. (Make sure the copy is on the RED AXIS like the first one.)4. Before you click to place it, type 203mm.

27You Will Get in a Group of 3 or 4 One person designs, prints, and builds the back wall.One person designs & prints one truss, then builds 8 trusses.One person designs, prints, and builds the front wall.One person designs and builds two side walls.
28Copy the backwall and use it to make a front wall. TIPS:Use the backwall drawing and cut off several inches of the wall to create two side walls!Copy the backwall and use it to make a front wall.

32One plastic army man will be placed in the very center of each shed. Burnin' Down the House!An equal amount of gasoline or lighter fluid will be poured on each shed.One plastic army man will be placed in the very center of each shed.Each shed will then be caught on fire and allowed to burn for five (5) minutes.At five (5) minutes, the fire will be put out.The shed with the most intact army man will earn 20 points extra credit.The shed with second most intact army man will earn 15 points extra credit.The shed with the third most intact army man will earn 10 points extra credit.Every other shed that participates, will earn 5 points extra credit.“Burnin’ Down the House” is not required. You may choose to save your Diva Den or Man Cave!
33Fire Proofing Your Shed You may use any fireproof or fire-resistant material inside your shed walls.Yes! INSIDE your shed walls (The material must fit in the 3mm gap).Is there a material that would slow the fire from spreading?Discuss this with your group but keep your strategy to yourself (other than your teacher)
34Want to see how to use the BACK wall to make an easy SIDE wall?
35Open your BACK WALL again. Re-save this file (SAVE AS!) “Sidewall yourname”.Notice the measurement at the bottom, where I’ve measured over to the end of the 8th stud. 121mm.
36In order to cut part of the wall off, you need to draw a line all the way around the end of the 8th stud.
37Rotate (ORBIT) your wall so you can draw a line on the bottom too.
38Now that there is a clear line drawn all the way around the 8th stud, simply start DELETING all the studs to the right...
39The easiest way to delete part of the wall is to remove the top and bottom section just to the right of the 8th stud then SELECT the last four (4) studs and press DELETE.
58Save it as “Shed Truss Your Name” Draw a 203mm x 10mm flat rectangle. Start a new file.Save it as “Shed Truss Your Name” Draw a 203mm x 10mm flat rectangle.Draw a 66mm vertical line from the midpoint.
59Draw a line from the top left of the rectangle to the top of the 66mm line. The shape will fill in, like it did here, but you can fix it later.
60The easiest way to create an angled stud is to draw a 10mm line out from the angled line.
61Use the line to draw a 10mm 2x4. Repeat on the other side.
62Draw two lines 5mm from the midpoint of the original vertical line you drew.
63This is zoomed way in to the bottom of the center vertical line. Draw a 5mm line from the line out to the right.Draw another 5mm line from the line out to the left.This creates a 10mm wide line that will become our last rectangle.
64Select and delete the two triangles in the middle.
65Print one and make eight (8) of these. The last step is to delete the 1/8” dimension lines, the ¼” guidelines that were used, and the vertical line running up the middle of the vertical rectangle.KEEP the lines shown by the arrows below!Print one and make eight (8) of these.
