I don't often try to make a Custom 3D Symbol but every once in a while I give it a go and of course I usually can't remember the sequence off the top so end up looking for directions on the process, which I have of course written down somewhere but can never remember where "man this getting older stuff does have it's issues ;-)"
Anyway, one of the first places I run into problems ( almost every time ) is in making the Solid Polygon. For some reason as I am clicking around the various lines to form the solid polygon when I click the final line and right click to end the process I end up having lines going askew, running in wrong directions or disappearing and it doesn't create the polygon ?
So what I am wondering is if there is a "best practices" or "foolproof way" to creating the solid polygons. More often than not what I am trying to create is a decorative timber gable truss. I beleive these have to be created by breaking each part of the gable truss down into seperate pieces that can be closed seperately and then assembled ( so to speak ) so that the sum of the parts make up the whole.
I also think I make the solid polygon before swtching to Softview to save.
Any suggestions on creating the solid polygon and in fact the whole process of creating the 2D & 3D models.
