…So now that we have our floor plan mapped to our…plain we can start actually drawing the outline of our structure.…So, I'm going to actually zoom in here and let's just use a line tool to create this.…Now, I'm not going to be super accurate here, for the sake…of speed, but let's just Just show you the process here.…So I'm going to zoom in as much as I can and get as accurate as I can.…So I'm going to make sure I snap to face and lay…down the first point and then I'm going to make…sure I'm going along the red and green axes her.…
So I'm going to draw this as accurately as I can.…Now when I get to this point here you'll see we have this circular element.…Now I put that in just to make this a little bit more difficult.…So we could have a problem to solve.…And we're going to solve this problem with the Arc tool.…So I'm going to select the Arc tool. Go to the far corner of this element.…Click, snap to my end point there and just…drag out that arc to match that circular element.…Now once I have this.…I can continue to draw with my line tool.…
