Only having one photo to base the roof slope, eyeball the ridge location and model two bargeboards.
- [Instructor] Our next job…is to model this roof, and the barge boards come first.…But we can't use the techniques that we've used earlier,…because we only have this one photo…that shows us this information.…So, we can't use the Photo Point tool,…which we used previously.…And that requires at least two photos…to create guidelines from.…So, we're going to have to approach this…in a different way.…I'll draw a line from the midpoint in this group,…straight up in the blue direction.…And then, I'll zoom in up here,…and draw another line.…
And I'm just going to eyeball that line,…and click along the edge, right here.…And then draw the line in the green direction.…And this point should then represent the top…of the barge boards,…because the roof does overhang the wall a short distance.…So, now I will go ahead and draw in a line,…in the red direction.…And then, select that line,…and choose Tools, Rotate.…
Position the cursor right here,…press the left arrow to indicate the green direction,…and then click to set the axis.…
