Wall Guard Molding Questions

Recommended Posts

I have to add room moldings to several hallways

How / where is the molding default set?

Or how do I use the Object Eyedropper to copy a room molding?

 

How do you get the molding to be wider than the door opening + casing?

OK I found that the room def holds the molding default for that room type. So I'll change the Hall default room.

I noticed you must add back the base molding when you do this but that complicates the offset needed on the handrails.

I guess you need 2 molding polylines for each molding?

Alan,

There are 3 possible moldings for a room:

  • Base
  • Chair Rail
  • Crown

Each can use a different Molding Profile and locations (height and offset)

OK, so you can select a room & hit the room molding button again to produce a 2nd room molding polyline.

But I want to have a setback for each door opening or do I need to manually move the molding back for each door?

See attached, the A is the auto side & the M is where I moved the molding end point?

In that case, you will need a separate Molding Polyline for each molding.  You would need to manually edit the Molding Polyline to set the distance from the doors.

Alan, I think your quickest solution might be to group select your doors, add a casing to provide the offset, generate the Room Molding Polyline for the rail, and then group select the doors and change the casing back.
