3D Construction Tool: Sweep Solids

A Visual Building video tutorial. Click on the full screen button to view in full screen mode.
This video is applicable to Visual Building Professional and upwards.
Visual Building Professional has the 3D Construction tool, which allows you to create your own models. One of the methods used is Sweep Solids, which uses a 2D path to sweep a contour along to define the shape of a 3D solid. In this video we demonstrate how to create a path of a downpipe against an elevation of a house, and then create as a 3D object. The object can be saved as a construction object or further editing or included within the standard catalogue as a .cyg 3d object.
Although the 3D Construction tool is available within the Professional (and upwards) version the resulting .cyg objects can of course be used by all versions.
