Creating Extrusions - page 3

Get the angle bracket that was saved in the first exercise.

  1. Using the Transform Roll-Up to apply a Horizontal Mirror to a duplicate of the first angle and move to the right using the constrain (Ctrl) key to hold the new object parallel. Select both of those object an Vertical Mirror to duplicate and move to the right using the constrain (Ctrl) key to hold the new objects parallel.
  2. Use the Transform Roll-Up to apply a "Vertical Skew -30 degrees."
  3. Use the Transform Roll-Up to apply a "Rotate 120 degrees." 
  4. Use the Transform Roll-Up to apply another "Rotate 120 degrees." Now all angles face up.
Use the Extrude Tool (Ctrl+E) to apply an extrusions to each object with the following settings: back parallel, VP locked to object, object center, Horizontal 0, Vertical -2.0.  If the result is too deep or shallow adjust the vertical dimension until it looks right. Adjust the front to back order as necessary.
By using the Transform Roll-Up to apply two "Rotate 120 degrees to duplicate"  you will have the 12 possible looking down/right views.
