Isometric Angles - page 9
Apply an isometric effect by using the Transform Roll-Up to apply the following: "Vertical Scale 86.6%, Horizontal Skew 30 degrees, Rotate 30 degrees. Choose the Extrude Tool (Ctrl+E) to apply an extrusion 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. Add the missing vertical lines with the straight line pencil tool.
To render: Select the extrude group, separate and un-group. All rendering will begin with C10, M5, I will only give the K value. Select the top and apply a Uniform Fill (Shift+F11) K0. Select the right/inside and apply a Uniform Fill (Shift+F11) of K50. Select the left/inside and apply a Uniform Fill (Shift+F11) K25. Select the large face and apply a Fountain fill (F11) with these settings: Linear, Custom, Position 0 = K60; Position 6 = K40; Position 35 = K40; Position 42 = K10; Position 50 = K20; Position 95 = K20; Position 100 = K40.
Thatís all for this month.
