If you have not finished the Steps 1-7 on pgs 40-41, please do so and save this as a file named copy.
Hint: If you want to see inside your home while you are working on it, I recommend that you switch the view to x-ray. This can be done by going to view and finding the face styles.
Hint #2: Another thing to consider is how your roof will be structured. You can draw a simple steeple style roof by finding the midpoint, which is the cyan colored dot. Now, follow the blue axis straight up until you find a roof height you are comfortable with. Once you have drawn the line, connect it with the green dots by drawing in a diagonal direction. You should now have closed faces, which you can then add roofing materials to.
Very minimal use of the 3d Warehouse. Please make this your own creation.
Use the tape measure tool to create equal sides. This will be a part of your grade.
Each house should be at least two stories, have grass or stone groundcover, furniture (you can get this from the window, components menu), windows and doors. Try to make the glass surfaces see through or translucent.
For extra credit, go to the help section and learn how to animate. If you need further reference you may use the textbook or the guided help section.
THE HOUSE ABOVE IS ONLY FOR INSPIRATION, PLEASE DON’T BE INTIMIDATED BY IT. TIME TO FLEX YOUR CREATIVE MUSCLES AND UTILIZE THE SKILLS YOU HAVE DEVELOPED. THIS HOME WILL BE DUE ON THURSDAY, APRIL 3RD BY END OF CLASS. If you finish, then see me for your next assignment.
