Help required on Polyline solid cylinder tool

Recommended Posts

Folks!
Want to make sewage path. Made the PVC lines with polyline solid cylinder tool but unable to make a cylinder 90* bend. Please HELP 20190426_093504.thumb.jpg.0f22a269a5e07eabfbe816f0fc47c6e0.jpg20190426_093836.thumb.jpg.8414862228ee5cc762dc3ff098a3600f.jpg20190426_094038.thumb.jpg.a48e3cdc1c56a71791ab05b78d5a4e78.jpg

Probably better to use Molding Polyline with a circle Molding applied (there are some round handrails that would work).

I tried but failed. Please guide stepwise.

 

Aamir use the same procedure with a Molding Line rather than a Molding Polyline and you should be fine.

cant be converted to Molding Polyline!  20190426_113131.thumb.jpg.f12cd634a1ad52d227e39f36575ffc70.jpg

Tried to convert to simple Molding Polyline in a new plan but failed to achieve the exact cylindrical shape!20190426_115048.thumb.jpg.7ea245bf28ae2f35b269d7d97c0b2827.jpg

Looks to me like a job for a 3D molding polyline.

Yes, that's what I used, thought the OP had trouble with it so provided sample.

Should have mentioned- in elevation draw lines for "L", fillet corner, convert to 3D molding line-go on from there. I find 3D molding lines to at times be quirky so when I can I draw in elevation as lines first-one extra step.

Convert to symbol since that is easier to reuse and alter lengths IMO.

Yes, I have found that when initially drawing the 3D molding poly line it is critical to decide the best view to start with, plan or a specific elevation. What seems to work best is to draw the first line in the same view as most of the other lines are going to be drawn/manipulated in. What I have also found interesting is that when trying to insert say a break to change direction is that it is usually best to use the same view type as that which was used when drawing the first line, you can then flip back to another view type to then manipulate it if need be.

      I am trying to make a custom column that has a brace at the top (required due to height). I have drawn the shapes I want and the center portion (the exposed structural column) easily converted to a polyline solid.  When I try to convert the the two polyline curved braces into a polyline solid, it only gives me the option to make them polyline moldings.  Attached is the Column brace.plan file and a pdf of what the overall column needs to look like.  I'm using X12.
       
      Thanks for help figuring this out!

      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 All
      I am wondering if you can create a new material from polylines.  I have made many new materials from images.  But in this instance I would like to make a series of metal circles to use to "paint" a hemi-sphere.  I could find an image to use to do this, but I want the circles to actually have real holes so light can shine through them.  I have attached an example of this for a light.  I am able to create a series of holes using a circle and the 3D molding polyline, multiple copy them and add to the library, but material is not an option.  This may not be possible...
      thanks

      Folks,
      I want to make the ceiling as that of the example picture attached. I have tried to begin with the primitive tools and specifically the cylinder tool but this tool does not possess the option of making the hole in the slab. Please help
