0:04 Most every playground I know of, has a slide. We should definitely create one.
0:11 Let’s make an archway for the top of the slide.
0:16 We can draw a rectangle between two pillars and pull it up 60 inches.
0:23 Then offset this surface inward by 6 inches and move the resulting rectangle down to exactly meet the bottom edge.
0:33 Now draw a 2-point Arc on the top of the inner rectangle.
0:37 I’ll make this bulge distance 10 inches and draw another 2-point Arc between the outer edges and snap it to the top edge.
0:47 Erase this dividing line and then use Push Pull to cut away geometry and leave our arch.
0:57 Finish by making it a component.
0:00 - Create arcs on the top with a radius that looks good to you - Use Push Pull to carve away geometry and leave the arch. - Make the arch a component.
