How can you create a Tray Ceiling without a Cantilevered Underside?

Recommended Posts

Is there a way to create a Tray Ceiling without the cantilevered underside? I've been able to achieve something close to what I want by setting the initial trey ceiling width to 1" but it still shows a lip or ledge around the top of the wall. Also I'm trying to preserve my wall height. Meaning if my wall height is 94" and I want a tray that starts flush from that wall height and pitches in with no cantilevered lip. Thanks in advance for your help and suggestions! 

 

Here is an image of the type of tray ceiling I'm trying to create in my 3D models.

There is a tool in Chief X12 that allows you to get this ceiling in about 10 seconds...watch the video

@SNestor this is amazing thank you! So easy when you know! I didn’t use the recess into the ceiling. Thank you so much for the straightforward and simple answer! I genuinely appreciate it, this definitely helps.

Good Day @SNestor, followed the steps which worked perfectly but I'm getting a gap between my wall and the tray ceiling. I've attached an image below of what's happening. Thanks for your advice.

Hi @MarkMc, Is this a custom molding you created? The only crown molding in the library I can find close to the one you used (which looks exactly like what I need) is the CA-35 and that has a flat front. Many thanks!
