Recessed electrical outlet in wall

Recommended Posts

Working a master suite on a beautiful Saturday...

 

I am trying to put in a recessed outlet (like what you would see behind a flat screen).  Chief does not have a model of this, nor could I find a descent one on-line to use.  I tried (see below) a niche, 2" deep, and it looks great in the plan view when I offset the fixtures -2", but the camera view is another story.  I thought, I will just put in a room divider line (like how we used to have to do on islands), and all that did was open the wall up.  Any ideas with all you experts?

Eric, I tried that too, but it won't let me set a negative Y.  Did you get it to work?

This looks good in standard view, lousy in vector unless you turn off the material region layer so might be wise to place on it's own layer, for plan the block needs some work (I didn't bother).

Placed an outlet, 3D molding line around it 5/8" x 1/16", convert to symbol, change y origin.

Placed in wall, placed material region to match set to cut into wall, Got rid of all but one layer of the material region, set to 5/8" as opening no material.
