Custom Doorway

Recommended Posts

Greetings I am using Chief Architect Premier x8 and trying to recreate the room in the attached picture. I am having trouble creating the door ways the way they are in the picture. When I do a regular door way and modify the casing settings it only changes the wood that is against the walls and not the wood that is in the door way. The program does not seem to allow me to modify the door jamb with custom millwork or anything. I have tried settings it to not have a door jamb and that makes no difference. I have also tried putting millwork objects inside the door way but the program does not let me do that.

You should try doing a search at 3D Warehouse for such appliques , I think custom appliques is the direction to look.

Picture/plan/library

Im not sure what you are showing? This is just a arched door/door way. The issue is not being able to put molding inside the joor way where the door jamb is.

You can place a 3D Molding Polyline within the doorway and add whatever molding is needed.

Thanks I think this is the best option so far.

Someone might have a better idea, but i was able to quickly recreate that by:

 

1. breaking the wall from the top (important) in 3 sections.

 

2. drag the wall sections to match the size of opening(s)... the center section all the way to the floor.

 

3. use a soffit the same width of the wall/drywall for the header.

 

4. model the wall cap, casing, and trim with polysolids.

Quick tip...

 

You can replace steps 1 through 3 by simply using 2 stacked windows and turning off the frame, casing, and sill.

This uses a doorway, with a railing wall (marked No Room Def and No Locate) inserted on each side.

 

3D Molding polyline and solids for the trim.

Michael/ Solver,

 

both options on S are great, thank you both! I tried Michael's method and will try Solver's tomorrow. 

 

Michael, I did have to remove the frames but I assume you figured I knew that. 

 

Thanks again,
