A beginners tutorial for making buildings

In response to a request from some new 3DC users I’ve started a series of detailed tutorials on building some simple building shapes with a view to exporting to Rail Simulator.

Here’s the link:

Nice, these could be useful to a lot of new 3DC users.

nice tutorial paul…i especially like the gutters….thanks, pirate

Hi,

Please advise where I am going wrong. I’m trying to extrude the side of the roof, but it extrudes straight rather than follow the angle of the roof.

Thanks

Shaun

Hi Shaun,

I suspect the first extrude of the roof to give it thickness has left you with vertical faces on the edges.

Go Back to that operation in the operations list and uncheck ‘Extrude using face direction’
Then move back to the last operation in the lits (top)
