Discover how to create doorway openings two ways. Building headers and window sills around an opening, and using the Push/Pull tool to subtract a shape from a wall.
- [Instructor] Now we're going to add…some windowsills and headers.…There are a couple ways to do this.…The first way is to use the interior thickness…of this wall and separate it out…so that we can drag the windowsill and the header…across to meet the other side.…So let's go ahead and do that way first.…I'm going to get my tape measure tool,…T for tape,…and measure out the windowsill and the header.…So from the base edge here,…I'm going to go right up that blue axis…to make sure I'm getting an accurate measurement…and I'm going to type three feet, Enter.…
Then from the top down,…I'm going to use the edge, click and release,…and move downward, and I'm going to type one foot, Enter.…Now that I have my measurements,…I'm going to get my line tool,…L for line,…click and release on the intersection…and go to the opposite edge.…I need to make sure that I'm running along…the appropriate axis here.…I don't want the edge to be black…because that's not aligned with the floor plane,…so it would be a slightly angled header or windowsill.…
