In this lesson you will model the fluted column shaft, as shown in this sketch.…Open the Column Six Project file, and zoom into the underside of the column…capital, orbit until you can see this cyan line, which is at the center line of…the column. Go to the home tab and click on the Line tool.…Draw a line from the mid-point of this cyan line.…Zoom out and orbit. And draw the line down to the bottom of…the fluted shaft. About here.…
Enter. Zoom back into the underside of the…capital here. In order to create this column we need to…have a circle. And that's going to be represented here…by this circle on this cyan object. So I'd like to create a circle on this…magenta layer. To do so, I need to rotate the User…Coordinate System so that the xy plane will be parallel to this circle.…
Type USC Enter. X, Enter, Enter.…Then click the Circle tool. Hold down shift, and right-click, and…choose Center to override any running object snaps.…Then position the cursor right here, and click.…Click right here again to snap to the quadrant of the cyan object.…
