As a facilities planner, you've been tasked with creating realistic 3D buildings for an upcoming remodel. To compare the suggested redesign to the current building, you'll use multipatch editing tools in order to create two buildings on the Penn State campus. After converting building footprints to multipatch features, you'll extrude them and edit vertices to create signature architectural features. Once you've created detailed facades, you'll apply textures to the buildings to make them as realistic as possible.
