Good Afternoon Users!

I ran into something interesting recently. I needed to create a concealed, angled, and twisting steel plate detail in 3D for a unique life size art project. Z-Axis: One tongue was angled at 3 degrees approaching the joint between facets/ The opposing tongue is angled at 18 degrees. X-Axis: these two tongues meet at 166 degrees from 0. Y-Axis: is perp to the 3 degrees of the Z-Axis Plates. Needless to say, my best description of the prescribed dual gusset plate. I see the geometry in my mind but there seems to be no quick way to create said object. Yikes! :-) 

 

An object that can rotate, add/subt handles, re-shape any edge, in ANY view....

 

Maybe 10X will have what I'm suggesting? An "Omni-Polyline Solid".... See Attachment 

 

Comments are welcome. Thanks!! Enjoy your Day!!

Try making it out of Primitive Solid Boxes and then cutting away what you don't want with other solids rotated and positioned as needed using the "Solid Subtraction Tool.

Yeah.... was trying to avoid that. Thought about creating it in Sketchup but that just seems a bit .... shall we say.... treasonous, if you know what I mean!! LOLLOL

      I am trying to create an address sign using a square polyline solid and REMOVING text from the square like in the attached image.  I know I can subtract other simple polyline solids, but how do I subtract a letter or number?  Chief Architect tech support had no solution.
       
      Thanks in advance

      Is there way to make a schedule of polyline solids? For example, several exterior trim objects created using p-solids and on their own layer. It would be handy to be able to create a schedule of items on a particular layer set.

      Hi,
      I am facing a problem and need your kind guidance in fixing the issue. I have made an architectural block and have stored it into my user catalogue for future installations which is a window grill.i have made a triple story house and on first and second floor grill is installed with the windows but on third floor whenever I try to fit in the grill with the window it disappears in camera view but remains present in plan view.what could be the cause?

      Hi All,
      I am trying to create a hole in a polyline solid.  I followed the directions on CA but get the error attached.  I am trying to make my pool scuppers look right by adding in a hole inside the scupper.
       
      And on a side note, 3Dwarehouse has some neat things.  I always get tickled when I see those little water streams with the splash in the pool from the scuppers.  Great find at 3D warehouse.  But some things seem to be geared toward gaming, like finding a horse that had nothing to do with Roman warriors was a challenge, but I found a really nice one (pic also attached).
       
      But any other free sources of good 3d objects?
