As part of our Digital Designer topic in Computing, I have been learning about and designing 3D buildings. This presentation will take you through the steps I took to achieve my final design.
The Main Structure
I have designed a relatively simple brick house. This type of design is commonly seen across the United Kingdom. I started by drawing a rectangle. I then used the offset tool to create another rectangle within the original shape, before using the push/pull tool to make a 3D structure.
Once I had completed the basic structure, I was able to add a chimney using the same steps as before. I then drew a triangle using the line tool and used the push/pull tool to extract the triangle all the way across the structure.
Door & Windows
To create the arc window I began with a simple rectangle. I drew a line 300mm below the top line before using the 2-point arc tool to draw an arc. Once the arc was draw I simply deleted the lines I no longer needed.
The garage was added very quickly. I simply drew a rectangle on the side of the house and extracted it out using the push/pull tool. I used the offset tool to create the door and pulled the frame out to set the door back. The door has been painted with a metal texture.
Every house needs a swimming pool, right? I had to create a garden first by drawing a rectangle around the property. I added a fence using the line tool and bucket, as well as adding grass and a pathway, again using the bucket tool.
Once I had the garden in place, I was able to draw a circle on for the pool. Again, I used the offset tool to create a frame around the original shape. I pushed the inner circle underground and painted it with stone tiles. I drew a line from one edge of the inner circle to the other to create another face. This line was immediately deleted (without deleting the face) and then painted with a water texture. Easy!
