Wall help?

Postby 3eighty » Fri Nov 30, 2007 3:57 am

:lol: I had to have a six pack to get up the nerve to ask this basic question...OK. I have a 4 sided box, say 300" by 200" I want 1" thick walls inside all the way around..You would think I could do this but I guess my brain is on vacation..What is the easiest method? :oops:

3eighty,

I wouldn't start like this.

1) draw a rectangle 200" x 300"
2) if you wish to add a "floor thickness", push/pull this up to the desired height.
3) use the offset tool to create your wall thickness (after starting the operation with it, just type 1" and hit enter)
4) now use the push/pull tool again to push/pull only the walls up (you may use it along with the Ctrl/Option key to leave a face at where the floor level is).

Well, if you have already made your box like you posted, you can still use the offset tool on the top surface as described unde step 3 above but now you have to push/pull the inside face back down.

Since this tutorial section is more for "finished" tutorials than for questions and answers, I'm moving this topic from here if you don't nind...
