Arched soldier course and rectangular windows

Recommended Posts

Hi all, I am trying to figure out how to do an arched soldier course of brick and an arched top aluminum trim around a rectangular window (like the attached photo). I've search through the settings and nothing jumps out at me. Does anyone have any suggestions?

Thanks

Brad

You can achieve the top aluminum part by manipulating the window frame top width:

Use the frame depth and inset values to place the window within the wall:

Then shoot an Elevation, create a Detail from View, draw a polyline for the arched soldier course, copy/paste it into the Elevation and covert it to a polyline solid:

Or use the method described in the knowledge base article, which creates individual bricks:here.
