In this movie, we're going to look at adding solid-form geometry to our family. So, I'm in a file called Adding Solids, and it is slightly different than where we left off in the previous movie, so you might want to use this one, even if you've been following along in your own. But let me just point out to you what's different about it. I've added two reference planes here in the elevation view.
