Architectural Multistorey Building Tutorial Part Three Third and Fourth Floor

Hello and welcome back to watch part three tutorial on Architectural Multistorey Building tutorial series. In the earlier tutorial we learned to model first and second floor, now let us go ahead and learn to model third and fourth which completes modeling part. Third floor would be pretty quick to complete as there are much less details to add whereas fourth floor has lot more details and needs more geometry to create so it needs more time and a bit lengthy procedure. I have tried to go in detail while creating some geometry rather than pre-constructed scene. You will feel a greater sense of confidence that the steps in the tutorial work independently without any pre-arranged settings or elements. Also we shall keep the complexity of the tutorial to the minimum and shall incorporate simple objects such as primitives so that you can gain a greater sense of clarity what exactly is going on. I have created this tutorial in such that maximizes transfer of knowledge in minimal amount of time.
 
Step One
The building block of any architectural design is line work. We can create this line work from scratch or just use any 2D application drawing, in this we have used AutoCAD drawing and created the outline and on its base we are modeling the building. So let us once again go ahead and use the line profile that we created earlier and as shown below. Now let us convert the line to Editable Poly and then Extrude it above the second floor with a value of 3.0m as height of extrusion.

Step Two
Now let us start creating the balcony for the third floor by creating a line diagram as shown below and then let us convert it to into Editable Poly and then let us Inset new polygons as shown below. Now let us use Extrude tool and extrude it then let us copy the Baluster that we created for ground floor and then place it properly as shown below. Now let us select the bottom edge of the balcony and the let close the bottom of the balcony as shown below.

Step Three
Let us copy the line diagram for cornice that we created for ground floor and then let us Extrude it and create a shape as shown below. Now let us place the cornice and balcony object on third floor as shown below.
