Curved counter tops

Recommended Posts

What is the best way to draw a curved granite counter top on top of a half wall?  For instance a bar top that is 16" wide 1-1/4" thick overhanging 2" to the inside of the curve on top of a 42" half wall.  I can't seem to adjust the auto cap to be offset to the 2" on the one side.  The counter top command does not seem to draw curves.  Do you have to draw it using poly lines?

 

Thanks for the help.

draw using poly line and convert to countertop or just use a custom counter top, shape it to what you want and adjust the height to what you want

Turning on Show Arc Centers and Ends will help too so you can center the Wall Arc and the Custom Countertop Arc on top off each other , the use the Wall Arc Radius to work out the Radius of the Countertop.

 

Actually I just found it easier to use the CAD Arc lines ( Polyline Tool ) and make two Arcs and then join them and convert to a counter-top

ie if wall is 60" outside Radius set the inner arc to 53.5" radius and the outer arc Radius to 70"  (very approximate for a 16" C.Top. and 4 1/2 wide wall)

 

Also, it's good to have your Forum Signature filled in please, especially with the Software Version,
and of course a Name is nice too :) ..............see mine below in Blue for how to do that.
If you don't see my Signature then you have them turned off for the Forum or are perhaps on the CA Mobile WebSite.

And a Molding Polyline could also work.
