Dear Forumers,

I have a small shot I would like to do and would like some help and advice (bear in mind I love Houdini and have been fiddling for a few years but really struggle with it). In my scene file is a “skyscraper” made from my logo. I would like to put it into a moon landscape environment (creating this shouldn't be a problem) but I would like simply to give the faces a tiny amount of depth (and make glass) and make the edges like metal or something so it looks kind of like a skyscraper. . My current question is how to make the faces have a small thickness (for the glass) and the edges like the metal bars that hold the panes of glass in. I guess I should duplicate the current geo node so one can be the glass and one the metal.

Any help and advice appreciated.

PEACE.

5D.

PS: I have attached the scene file currently
PPS: I am not intending this to be a PHOTO-REALISTIC skyscraper just an arty piece
