    Rotate polyline molding vertically

    Simple example from a thread a day or 2 ago. Create bullnose corners on an arched opening. After placing the door, CAD Detail From View lets you precisely and quickly trace the opening, including the arch. Or imagine creating a custom stringer or skirt board for a stair. Depending on the shape, use the Line (right click for continuous draw mode), or Rectangular Polyline tools. Once in a CDFV, you can lock everything, but still pick up snaps.

    Rotate polyline molding vertically

    You don't for this, but for some things you do. I was trying to slip in a bit of education ...

    Rotate polyline molding vertically

    You could also create a Symbol, set stretch planes and rotate it. As Joe said... I assume you want to frame the picture behind the stove, so take an elevation of that wall, CAD Detail From View, trace over the outside of the picture. Copy the line you just drew, back to the elevation, Paste/Hold Position, convert to a 3D Molding Polyline, add your molding.

    Bay Window Advice

    Flared Awning in the library. I would use the Bay Window tool, and you will need to move the main roof out of the way. And we generally don't need the full backup of your plan, just the plan file itself.

    Looking to buy a license to use D paper sizes

    I believe David told how to do this with Pro. And you can rent Chief, or pay someone to do this for far less than buying Chief.

  14. This is what I get auto building. (X11) Make sure Ignore Top Floor is not checked in the build roof dialog.
  15. Trusses do not build roofs, they build between existing ceiling and roof planes. https://www.chiefarchitect.com/support/article/KB-00981/creating-roof-trusses.html
