Ferris Wheel(MAGIC-CAT 3D pringting pen's stencil)

Ferris wheel is a large-scale runner-like mechanical construction facility, which hangs on the edge of the wheel is the cockpit for passengers to ride. Passengers sit on the Ferris wheel and turn up slowly. They can overlook the surrounding scenery from a high altitude. The most common occasions for Ferris Wheels are amusement parks (or theme parks) and garden fairs. As a kind of amusement park mobile game, they are called "Three Treasures of Paradise" together with roller coasters and merry-go-round horses. But Ferris wheel often exists alone in other occasions, usually used as a viewing platform for activities. It's very popular with everyone. Let's make a Ferris wheel today.
