Create a 3D Symbol of a whole house plan

Recommended Posts

Is there a way to create a 3D symbol of the building. I was wondering if you could fill me in on how to do this. I need to put 2 different house plans on a large lot. There are 26 houses in total on this site.

Just like creating any symbol.

Just make sure the building you use for the symbol is limited to just it's exterior components.  Eliminate all interior walls, doors, cabinets, etc.

Joe:

 

please refresh my memory

is eliminating the interior stuff to reduce size of the symbol

 

or is there another reason ?

 

is it  "mandatory" or just a good idea

 

its been years since I made a building into a symbol

It helps keep the file size down.

In the image below everything you see except the road and the vehicles are 3 symbols from 3 separate plans placed adjacent to each other. This would have made for a huge file size and a very slow pan file except that there is literally nothing inside each model.
