How do you turn a cad drawing into a curved ceiling beam

Recommended Posts

Convert to polysolid is a method i would use.  See below.  The lines need to be a single poly (connected).

The Polyline solid box does not accept the check mark for some reason

You can make that beam in Sketchup to the size that you need, much faster than messing around CA.

Not for everyone. I, for one, can make that beam in about 2 minutes in CA, 2 days in Sketchup...if I'm lucky..

With P-solids, yes you can slap that together but little more than 2 min.;) 

But if you do it like in the picture making all the reveals as it would be built in the field it's much faster and easier to do that in Sketchup...Just saying.

Not for me either, but that's because I don't know how to use sketchup very well at all. I'd need another minute to Joey's original 2 minutes to add the reveals and any joints / connections.
