looks great marlonjohn.

Haven't modelled any buildings myself, but was thinking of modelling a certain church. Did you do any tutorials to learn some techniques?

thanks for the comment DJBlazer... whats the name of the church if you dont mind me asking? there wasnt really any real tutorials to help me on this, just generally basic knowledge, except for this one which just tought me about to rotate windows/objects etc which is pretty newbish and would know that you already know this stuff but this is the link anyway,

http://www.tutorialscentral.com/inde...d=30&Itemid=30

if you need any help with the church just give us a nudge

cheers, marlon

[ACID: do you mean like the steps... they wernt balanced out properly like 10steps then flat, then 10 steps then flat again? :p]

It's a church in Gothenburg, Sweden.

Aha, so you sued booleans to make the rounded windows? Don't like booleans.... they usually make strange geometry and crashes and doesn't work half of the times...

ey acid yeah you were right... i just relised when i opended that scene again and went duplicate option box i accidently had -1 or something in my rotate y soo it tilted them abit mybad ... but ived fixed them up in the recent renders when i redid the stairs

haha yeah i used booleans to make the windows... to be honest before i even started this project i didnt even know how to make windows :p what i did with booleans soo i dont have any touble in the future was to create a something and just randomly get mistakes and try learn how you can fix it so you dont end up stuffing up later on on your main project, heres a little church of what i did. this was to test booleans for the first time...heres a picture of it...

sorry about the bad renders and the stretch marks(they are from because when i duplicated the window around on each side of the church i accidently had doubles underneath each other and combined them then after i pulled the windows out of the bulding i ended up with wierd geometry...

Hey Marlon, top job m8 - very impressive!

Just a side point on the stair design (well my 2 cents anyway), stairs typically run at about 34.5 degs. This is achieved with a standard Rise (vertical height) of 172mm per step (that’s equal to 2 standard house bricks) & a standard Run (horizontal length) of 250mm.

As a draftsman, I deign stair cases all the time & this is the basic formula I use. Apparently as humans we are so conditioned to these standard step heights that even a small increase can feel uncomfortable to climb.

Anyway, great effort m8 - looking forward to your next endeavor...
