To make

Pumpkin:

  • Sphere. For obvious reasons!
  • Draw rectangle. You need this to split the top and bottom of the pumpkin.
  • Extrude, merge. This makes your rectangle 3D.
  • Split solid. This does the splitting.
  • Shell. To hollow out the pumpkin.

Face:

  • Polygon. To draw one eye, nose and mouth.
  • Polyline. To assist the Mirror tool below.
  • Extrude, merge. To make the eye 3D.
  • Mirror. This creates a second eye.
  • Group. To link the eyes, nose and mouth together.
  • Move, rotate. To position the face on the pumpkin.
  • Extrude, subtract. To carve out the face on the pumpkin.

Name on back of pumpkin:

  • Text. To create my daughter’s name in the model.
  • Move, rotate. To position the name on the pumpkin.
  • Extrude, subtract. To carve out the name on the pumpkin.

Holes for handles:

  • Circle.
  • Move, rotate. To line up the hole position.
