Hey gang, I'm having a bugger of a time getting four windows at the top of a stack to equal to one elliptical arc.  I can do it with two, but when I try to do it with four, the curvature of the end windows is off, and will not work, no matter what I try.  Attached are a drawing of what I'm trying to do, a screen cap of two windows doing it (customer wants four), and what it looks like when I try to do four.  Please help!

Try using a Double Arch instead of a broken arch.  This will give you control over the radius.  Not perfect, but here's a really quick example...

Wow, Michael, that's exactly what I needed!  Tech support had no idea.  I'll have to play around with the radius, but that's the ticket!!! Thanks!

That is as perfect as anything that can be built IRL can be.

You can add an arch after mulling windows.

 

Unmulled

and mulled with arch added

Another very good option depending on the circumstance.  Thank you Eric.

Michael ... thanks... you have rather quickly shown a procedure that likely would have taken many of us fellow Chief users much longer to complete.  Love your videos ... short and sweet and to the point.
