Using the Push/Pull tool, extrude the building up to represent the second floor, and the volume above the second floor as well.
- [Instructor] At this point, we have…barge boards representing the roof slopes,…but we have no building volume yet to meet that,…so let's rectify the situation by coming…in here and double-clicking on the first floor object,…press P for the Push/Pull Tool,…and pull this surface up.…Press the Option key or the Control key in Windows…to leave a copy of the original edges behind.…Then go into photo one, and let's pull this up…to this height so that this top edge…is parallel to the end of the white trim right there.…
So that represents the volume of the second floor.…If you look closely, you may observe…that this portion of the wall is actually popped forward.…We need to represent that in the model.…And what I'd like to do is subdivide…this surface into two separate surfaces,…and I can't see the whole surface right now…because it's being partially obscured by this roof.…Let's hide that roof by going View,…Component Edit, Hide Rest of Model.…
This will hide everything that isn't part of this group.…Now, I can press L for line and draw in a vertical line.…
