Niche in pony wall

Recommended Posts

I am trying to insert a niche in a shower pony wall, but the program changes the size from 3" deep to 5'16" and seems to reverse the symbol.

Anyone else experience this?

Looks like a bug to me. Please report.

 

With a bit of work, you can use the Inserts Into Wall setting -- X10 only, I believe. Add your version to your signature please.

 

Make a symbol with this setting. Place it in the wall. Use the Edit Polyline tool in the Edit toolbar to change the shape.

Wasn't that a bug with an earlier version of X10?

Just got off the phone w/ Chief and it is a bug.

The solution is old school until it gets resolved..... use a pass-thru with a polyline solid for the back.

Thanks,

Charles

Here's Eric's solution using a cabinet turned into interior fixture, inserts into wall. EZ but X10 only.

Good idea Mark, but how do you turn a cabinet into an interior fixture?

Place in blank plan

 adjust face, shelves etc. 

3D perspective, convert to symbol, select type (interior fixture),  check advanced options. Name it, adjust origin, options, materials  and stretch planes zones as needed. 

In this case I made it 3-3/4" deep and set the stretch plane to something larger like 10. That prevents the depth from changing.

In the image I posted above, you can see there is framing showing, and the symbol I used had a Gap material applied so it's not visible.

 

Mark created a cabinet symbol that inserts into wall so it would have sides, a back and possibly shelves. He created his own wall niche.
