Now that your 2D plans are drawn, use them as a reference for your 3D model. As a note, there a number of steps in this process.
- [Instructor] Now that we have the 2D plans…drawn for our table…let's use that as a reference to model the table in 3D.…So while we work on this let's make sure…our Snapping is set to the default,…so we have Object snap, Angle,…Intersection, and Smart Points.…And also, let's make sure that we have the correct layer.…So let's click on the Active Layer,…and sure enough, it's set to Table Top.…Let's first model this Table Top,…so let's rotate this view,…let's do a flyover, look at the Table Top,…and they are closed polygons,…so we can use the tool called the Push/Pull tool…to extrude this up.…
Let's go to our 3D Modeling Tools Set…and toward the top we have Push/Pull,…let's click on that.…And let's use the default mode.…Now when we hover over an enclosed,…or a closed polygon we see that it becomes highlighted.…Let's click on this outer piece here…and let's drag up.…And you notice that it's extruding up.…Let's set the Distance to two inches,…hitting the Tab key once, and then hit 2, and Enter.…But that's just set, we need to click once in the screen…
