Creating A Cad Detail for Crown Molding

Recommended Posts

I would like to know if someone can direct me as to how to create a crown molding detail ... I have builders who have requested this due to the trim carpenters making mistakes during installation and it is costing him tons in crown repurchase to correct the mistakes . I design 100% custom so I can adjust top rail sizes , add stop molding and use various size crown molding and would like to be able to show the cad detail for the different installs. Attached is a hand drawn example of what I would like to do in Chief 

 

Page 6 of drawings is what I am looking for and if possible the hood page as well

 

Thanks

You can also pull profiles from the User Catalog or Core Catalog by right clicking and using the option to "Place Molding Profile" which could save you some time unless everything you do is custom.

Thanks to all ...... I will get to work on this ! Normally quality Trim Carpenters figure this out but seems these days skilled labor is impossible to find and contractors hire the cheapest cabinet monkey they can find ! Go figure order custom cabinets and hire low skill labor !!

Very easy to create using the molding profile of the crown mold then simply add to it.

All molding profiles available online already in DWG file, just import into CA and save it.
