By using cut, copy, and paste in place, strategically cut away the volume of the building extending above the roof.
- [Instructor] In this video,…we'll use cut, copy and paste in place tools…to help us…create a tool that we can use to slice away…the volume of the building that extends above the roof.…So let's get started.…Zoom in on the barge board here,…double click on it to open that group,…and select the top surface.…Choose Edit, Copy.…That copies that surface to the clipboard.…Click outside the group to close it.…
Then choose Edit, Paste in Place.…This is different then regular Paste.…When you paste in place,…the object goes in exactly the same place…that it was before.…If you choose Paste,…the object is attached to your cursor,…and you have to click somewhere…to place it in the scene.…I'll press S for Scale,…and click on the grip on the right,…and scale that object…all the way through to the other side.…It doesn't really matter how far it overshoots,…because we're using this as a tool right now…to create this plane that we're going to intersect…with the building.…
But right now this surface…is in a separate modeling context.…Remember the building is in its own group.…
