With all of our Reference Planes and levels in place, in this movie we will begin…massing out the basic building form.…In the previous chapter we looked at several ways that we can approach the…creation of forms, but we saw that in all approaches we use that single Create…Form button to generate the 3D forms.…In this movie, we will put those techniques to practice and rough out the overall…form of our museum building.…So here I am in a project file called Add Basic Forms, and it's just a version of…the one that we've been working on in the last few movies, and I'm going to use…Reference forms to create my forms with.…
You could use either Model or Reference, but I tend to prefer Reference forms,…because I feel like they give me a little more control.…I like having the reference lines there to allow me to manipulate the forms…after the fact and it gives me additional Work Planes to work on.…So for all those reasons I tend to prefer the Reference-based forms, but you can…certainly use Model-based forms for many of these options as well.…
