Extruding Multiple Items
It's time now to dimensionalize these shapes. Follow these steps
to extrude the objects in a proper perspective:
Select both objects and then choose the Extrude Tool.
CTRL - SHIFT (constraining the extrude to centered
horizontally and up and down motions only), and then
drag on the face of the top object downward to extrude
both selected objects in continuous perspective.
On the Infobar, with Extrude Depth chosen from the
Extrusion Parameters drop-down list, set the Extrude
Depth to about 50 by dragging the slider to the right.

down list and make the bevel's size about 60 by
dragging its corresponding slider to the right.
Click the Extrusion Parameter drop-down box and choose
Perspective. Set the Perspective to about 54. Optionally,
click the Show Lights button on the Infobar and, one at a
