How to Create the Porch Columns in 3D: Hello and welcome to this new class. In this video, I will show you how to create a three D porch off our house with the help of this drawing, with its exact measurements that you can see on your screen. Our porch contains five columns on defense between each one of them, and we will start by creating the columns off are pretty porch. In order to do that, we will open the treaty model that looks something like this. If you have followed all the periods lessons from this course on before creating the first column, we will create its layer by clicking the plus sign within the layers window and renaming the layer one toe Borj Boesch holds press center and select this layer toe. Make it active. Now zoom in a little bit. So, like the tape measure told to create the first set off guidelines that are 10 centimeters from this left side and this other site off the basement and then, by using the rectangle to we will create the basis off our column that is 20 by 20 centime to speak, so the rectangle tool draw a rectangle and in the bottom right corner. Enter 20 comma wet when you do that, and in order to create three D so like the push pull toe. However, over the basis, click on it.

Triple click on it, right click on it and select the main group option from the drop down menu. As you can see on this, drawing the distance between every column is 345 centimeters.

I'll see you in the next one where I will show you how to create a fenced off our porch. 3. How to Create the Porch Fence in 3D: Hello and welcome to the next video. In the previous one, I have shown you how to create a treaty columns off our treaty porch, and in this one I will show you how to create offense off the porch. Before I started doing that, I will go back to the drawing with exact measurements where I can see that the high toll defense is 100 centimeters, and that defense is created by two horizontal elements and several vertical elements. So going back to the treaty model, the first thing I will do is to create a new layer renamed the Layer One Abortion Dash Friends Press Center on Select this layer toe Make it active. Now everything is ready to create offense. So I was zooming a little bit. And by using the tape measure tool, I will first define the height off the fence by entering one found in the bottom right corner. After that, I will mark the height of the first horizontal element, which is five centimeters. The vertical element is 81 centimeters, and the second horizontal element is for centimeters. After doing that, I was create another vertical guideline in the middle off the column at 10 centimeters, and now I'm ready to create the first for result of element, which is a centime to swipe. So I would create the guideline at four centimeters to the right, on four centimeters to the left. By using the rectangle tool I would create a rectangle on. By using the push total, I will create its length off 345 centimeters, which is the exact distance between two Collins. After that, I will triple click this new element, right click on it and select the main group option to make it a group when it's created. I don't know, create the bottom horizontal element that is four centimeters. Why? So I will need a new set off guidelines that are two centimeters to the right on two centimeters to the left. By using the rectangle tool, I will create rectangle on with a push. Balto. I will define its length off 345 centimeters. Again, people click on it, right click on it and make it to group. Now I'm ready to create a vertical elements off the fence, and the 1st 1 is 25 centimeters from the column so I will enter 25 in the bottom right corner on the with all the element is four centimeters. By using the rectangle tool, I will create its base on by using the push. Balto, I will make it three d off 81 centimeters, so fit in perfectly between two horizontal elements. After that title, triple click on it, right click on it and make it to grow. Now I want to make a copies off this vertical elements, so I will again use the tape measure tool and create the distance between vertical elements , which is 25 centimeters. When I zoom in a little dates with the move toe, I will click the lower left corner off the elements, drag it to the right, taking care off the time parallel to the red access. Then, while doing that, press the control key on my keyboard and then click it on the intersection off this horizontal element and guideline. Now, before doing anything else, end in order to create the copies off this vertical element, Enter 10 and X in order to create 10 copies off this word to go element. As you can see, we have created defense, and now we need to select all these elements off the fence and make them a group in orderto copy them between other calls off our porch. We will do that by using the selection tool and by creating direct angle over the fence from left to right to select all the elements, right Lee Konitz and make it a group.
