Create a cube and then make 10 more copies with 2 units of space along the XAxis. First Translate the cubes X position to 10. Translate X: –10 
Make a 10 cube X 10 cube X 10 Cube. Post in your Blog. Edit > Duplicate Special □ (open the options box) There are 3 boxes to the right of Translate; they are not labeled but are as followed: X, Y, & Z Translate the cube in the positive direction by 2 units for each copy. Change Translate X to 2 and the Number of Copies to 10. Hit Duplicate Special or Apply (Hitting Apply keeps the window open versus closing it.) 
Edit > Duplicate Special □ (open the options box) There are 3 boxes to the right of Scale; they are not labeled but are as followed: X, Y, & Z Repeat last step. Translate the cube in the positive direction by 2 units for each copy. Change Translate X to 2 and the Number of Copies to 10. Scale the cube in the positive Z direction by a 1.25 ratio for each copy. Change Scale Z to 1.25 leave both X & Y as default. Hit Duplicate Special or Apply (Hitting Apply keeps the window open versus closing it.)

First scale your cube to 6 units in the Z direction. Scale Z: 6 Edit > Duplicate Special □ (open the options box) There are 3 boxes to the right of Rotate; they are not labeled but are as followed: X, Y, & Z Repeat last step. Translate the cube in the positive Xdirection but change the units to 1 for each copy. Change Translate X to 1 and also change the Number of Copies to 20. Rotate the cube in the positive X direction by 20 degrees for each copy. Change Rotate X to 20 Degrees leave both Y & Z as default (0). Hit Duplicate Special or Apply (Hitting Apply keeps the window open versus closing it.)

Repeat Last Step: create a cube scale it to 6 units in the Z direction. Scale Z: 6 This time we are going to move the pivot point. Hit {Insert} on your keyboard to toggle move pivot on; the manipulator changes shape. I moved only in the zdirection to the left of the cube. Hit {Insert} on your keyboard to toggle move pivot off; the manipulator changes shape.

Edit > Duplicate Special □ (open the options box) There are 3 boxes to the right of Rotate; they are not labeled but are as followed: X, Y, & Z Repeat last step. Translate the cube in the positive Xdirection but change the units to 1 for each copy. Change Translate X to 1 and also change the Number of Copies to 20. Rotate the cube in the positive X direction by 20 degrees for each copy. Change Rotate X to 20 Degrees leave both Y & Z as default (0). Hit Duplicate Special or Apply (Hitting Apply keeps the window open versus closing it.) Looks a bit different than the last iteration because it is pivoting in a different location.

This time make a new object, position it off center by changing the pivot point. Repeat Step: hit {Insert} on your keyboard to toggle move pivot on; the manipulator changes shape. I moved only in the zdirection to the left of the cube. Hit {Insert} on your keyboard to toggle move pivot off; the manipulator changes shape.

Edit > Duplicate Special □ (open the options box) There are 3 boxes to the right of Rotate; they are not labeled but are as followed: X, Y, & Z This time, Rotate the object in the positive Y direction by 18 degrees for each copy. Change Rotate Y to 18 Degrees leave both Y & Z as default (0). Change the Number of Copies to 19. *We changed these settings because 20 goes into 360 degrees 18 times. Hit Duplicate Special or Apply (Hitting Apply keeps the window open versus closing it.)

This time make a new object, position it off center by changing the pivot point. I used the same object, but just made it a lot bigger. Repeat Step: hit {Insert} on your keyboard to toggle move pivot on; the manipulator changes shape. I moved only in the zdirection to the left of the cube. Hit {Insert} on your keyboard to toggle move pivot off; the manipulator changes shape.

Edit > Duplicate Special □ (open the options box) This time we are going to scale and rotate, Rotate the object in the positive Y direction by 18 degrees for each copy and the Scale X, Y, & Z to a .75 ratio. Change Rotate Y to 18 Degrees leave both Y & Z as default (0) and the Scale X, Y, & Z to a .75 ratio. Change the Number of Copies to 19. *We changed these settings because 20 goes into 360 degrees 18 times. Hit Duplicate Special or Apply (Hitting Apply keeps the window open versus closing it.)

This time repeated the previous steps, but also created multiple objects. I grouped them together. Select all the objects and press {Ctrl} + {g} to group them. Then move the pivot point again. *If you deselect the group and want it back, select one object in the group and press the up {⇧} key to move up the hierarchy tree until the group is selected. 
I just repeated the same settings as the previous iteration. Edit > Duplicate Special □ (open the options box) Repeated Step: I scaled and rotated, Rotate the object in the positive Y direction by 18 degrees for each copy and the Scale X, Y, & Z to a .75 ratio. Change Rotate Y to 18 Degrees leave both Y & Z as default (0) and the Scale X, Y, & Z to a .75 ratio. Change the Number of Copies to 19. *We changed these settings because 20 goes into 360 degrees 18 times. Hit Duplicate Special or Apply (Hitting Apply keeps the window open versus closing it.) What am I looking for? Create 3 complex Duplicate Special Designs. For each design, create 2 screen shots:  One showing your Duplicate Special settings and your original shape.
 One showing your final Duplicate Special design.
