• Which the release of FS2020 we see an explosition of activity on the forun and of course we are very happy to see this. But having all questions about FS2020 in one forum becomes a bit messy. So therefore we would like to ask you all to use the following guidelines when posting your questions:

    • Tag FS2020 specific questions with the MSFS2020 tag.
    • Questions about making 3D assets can be posted in the 3D asset design forum. Either post them in the subforum of the modelling tool you use or in the general forum if they are general.
    • Questions about aircraft design can be posted in the Aircraft design forum
    • Questions about airport design can be posted in the FS2020 airport design forum. Once airport development tools have been updated for FS2020 you can post tool speciifc questions in the subforums of those tools as well of course.
    • Questions about terrain design can be posted in the FS2020 terrain design forum.
    • Questions about SimConnect can be posted in the SimConnect forum.

    Any other question that is not specific to an aspect of development or tool can be posted in the General chat forum.

    By following these guidelines we make sure that the forums remain easy to read for everybody and also that the right people can find your post to answer it.

Modelling help in Blender 2.9

I am pretty new to blender, trying to do my best with the tutorial videos I have watched. I am attaching 2 images with this, as I am not able to create the glass frames around them.
Can someone give me a quick tip.

I need white lines around the window/glass frames as shown in the last picutre. If I try to inset faces, and exclude them.. all of them go back so no frames.

You may want to look at the "solidifier modifier" in Blender - then extruding the actual windows inwards should give you a decent result - if i haven't misunderstood your question.
There's also the "wireframe modifier" - i suggest you watch one or two videos on these and then decide if these 2 modifiers might be of help to you.
But, as Guido said - it's much easier for anyone to help you if you just attach your .blend file.

Cheers

I have attached my blend file with this.. if someone can help me on it.

All I need is the window edges to be extruded out so I can match it with the terminal building color.
I have attached the pic of the current state.. its just one plain black mirror. :(

Ok I see and agree with Rashidar84 to use a modifier for that. I prefer the BuidlingTool that can be activated in Edit, Preferences.

Hi,

So here the results:

1. I append your mesh into ano)ther blender file since you settings seems to be very weird (He edges were not showing)
2. I scale to 1,1,1 your model -> this is the first thing you need to make

3. Then, in edit mode I selected your faces

4.Inset (i) two times

5. extrude back a little and.. voila

Have a nice day

The final structure is a pain to assign materials, so before insetting I would recommend to assign the entire wall a window frame material and after insetting you will be left with the windows selected where then it is easy to assign the glass material.
