Live Home 3D for Windows Tutorials – Making Outdoor Kitchen


In this video we will teach you how to build
an outdoor kitchen. Something similar to this kitchen project. Here is what you should do to create such
model: – open 2D Plan View; – draw 4 walls using the Room or Straight
Wall tool, select these walls, and assign to them Loft type properties using the Object
Properties tab of the Inspector; – add a roof on the current story (say, Hip
roof will do); this can be done both with the AutoRoof or Custom Roof tool, if you have
Pro version; – set the roof elevation using the Inspector
/ Object Properties tab (do not mix up this elevation and the elevation of the floor in
the Building tab); – create big openings in the walls; users
of Pro Edition can do this in Elevation 2D View, while Standard Edition users may use
Openings available in the Library. Note that the kitchen foundation may need
to be lowered to the ground level, if you have other structures with a certain foundation
height on this level. In this case, select the floor of the kitchen
and set the negative value for its elevation using Object Properties tab of the Inspector. Adding beams is quite simple: – add a building block (or a shape from the
Library); – right click or Control-click on the model
and select Merge option in the dialog that appears (it will assign the furniture properties
to an object); this step is important if we want to rotate and incline the beams; Now rotate the beam and give it the necessary
inclination using the Type & Representation dialog. Place the created item to its position. Repeat this step until you have all necessary
beams in place. You may copy and paste previously created
beams to speed up the process. Making the frame for a roof is the most complicated
and time consuming part of the job. Once we’re done with the roof, we may add
kitchen items from the Object Library or Trimble 3D Warehouse. The latter contains thousands
of ready made outdoor kitchen sets. The final touch is to paint the back part
of each unit by applying the necessary material from the Material Library. There is also another, faster way to add an
outdoor kitchen to your project. You may, simply use Garden Pavilion from the
program Library or even download the whole kitchen model from Trimble 3D Warehouse, but
in this case you are limited only to available models. There is no much room for creativity
in such case.
