Facade - Structured Selection (Building a skyscraper)

In this video Dr. Sassi extrapolates upon the technique introduced in the previous video. With selection out of the way it is time to start modeling the basic structure of the building’s facade. By creating selection sets along the way you can easily manage your modeling, as well as materials. Once the basic geometry for the facade is laid out, Dr. Sassi will explain how you can utilize a Cloner object to create rotational symmetry, resulting in a full building. This discussion also includes an explanation of how to figure out the proper offset to use in the Cloner. Once the modeling is completed a method for lighting up random windows using materials is given.
