A new 3D layer for external walls is needed. This video shows you how to set it up.
- [Narrator] We're staying in our zero zero … ground floor layers drawing … and we're going to start thinking about … the layers that we need for our scene … in our 3D Studio Max software. … Now, how're we going to do that, … how we're going to work with this … and generate the layers that we need? … Well, the good thing is, this particular example … that I'm showing you to work with is really simple, … really easy to use and it's actually quite effective, … because there's no real complexity to it. … Now, bear in mind, … when you're working in a live environment, … I'm pretty sure that some of the drawings … that you're going to bring into 3D Studio Max … will be a lot more complex. … But what I'm trying to get across here … is the workflow and also, more importantly, … things like layer naming philosophy … and how you organize your layers … to make sure that they all represent … what you need them to represent. … So let's have a look at our external walls first. … Now, if you look, we've got a boundary here …
