Creating angled wood blocks on a fireplace wall

Recommended Posts

Do I use poloylines to create this look on a fireplace wall?  It's the angled shelves I am having problems with.  Are there any good tutorials on how to create things with polylines?  

 

Attached is the look I am after and a picture of my camera floor plan image 

 

Much Thanks,

Yes Polyline solids are likely the simplest way to draw these, just draw and configure in floor plan and set elevation and thickness with DBX, apply materials and you are done.

If those have a profile on the face, try a custom countertop. They will accept an edge profile.

Polyline solids, converted to solids then exploded will give you face control for the texture. If you are putting something on with wood grain and need to get the look right on flat grain vs. edge grain I would go with the solids.

      Hello X8 Gurus!
       
      I have a challenge for you...
       
      I'm curious to know if you have any ideas on how to create a faux buttress that only is attached to the exterior of the building (as part of a renovation) but DOES NOT protrude into the building.  I call it a "Faux Buttress", because it is not functioning as a buttress, but merely providing a design element.  The height is about 20' and the width is 2'.  It follows the contour of the exterior surfaces of the building.  It is a simple 2x4 construction with a rock pattern veneer on it.  No extra load on roof needing any S.E. work.  For the parts that sit on the roof, the flashing and meeting of the 2x4 construction and the existing roof are to be matched, keeping the current aesthetic, systems and materials.  (Which are pretty standard ones on the existing.)
       
      I have had two different ways taught to me as to how to create it best.  I'd like it to integrate into the Schedules, but that does sound pretty hard to do.  I have also had another person say that simply using polylines to create it, are best.  But if that is the best way to do it, then how to create it the best way there, is my question.  Currently, it bleeds down in the the interior, so I am not sure how the last guy did it, but it is not right.
       
      Thus the request for your thoughts on how to do this best.
       
      Thank you,
