Inserting a shelf within a wall

Recommended Posts

Hey yall! I would like to build a shelf in my plan, however it is placed within the wall as you can see from the image I posted. I'm using Chief x11, and was wondering how to replicate the depth in the wall for the shelf?

I see you are using Chief X11 but it is very helpful for everyone if you can fill out your signature line with that info as well as some basic hardware info as in some cases glitches and other errors are related to your hardware.

 

That all being said.  Try Window>Create Wall Niche...  In the Cabinet drop down there is a quick shelf to add and you can customize it to glass and thickness/size.

 

Hope that helps! :)

Hey thank you that was really helpful. However would it be possible to place the wall niche in a polyline wall? There's a column in the center that was difficult to replicate unless I made the surrounding wall out of polylines..

No solids needed.

Control/drag the shelf in place.

Wow that works great! I'm wondering though, how did u remove that center piece for the column? I made it all one interior wall with one pass thru window and one door way for the archways.
