- Having gotten the outer frames sorted out,…we're going to spend our time in this video…creating the central boards that will help…us complete one side of our wood crate asset.…Let's select our top piece in the view port then,…and holding down the shift key,…left-click and drag downward in order to bring…up the Clone options dialog box.…We want to make a copy here naming it…something like Cross Boards.…And then, come over the the modifier stack…so that after jumping down to the box level…and pressing yes to the topology warning again,…we can edit some of the parameters here…in order to make things look…a little more like our concept drawing.…
We're going to alter our length value here…and set it to 9.9 cm in order to make this board…a little bit thinner than the frame sections.…We can also come to the width option…and set this to 51 cm.…Then, we want to go ahead and bring the height…parameter all the way down to 1.5 cm.…We do need at this point to check everything over…making sure that everything is looking correct.…
