I would do both with polyline solids. Export the door as a symbol and then build the rest of the glazing around it to make the whole unit a symbol and import. The trusses would also be done with poly solids. I would make the trusses as individual parts rather than subtraction to make the texture mapping easier.

Curved Trusses:
1.    Use CA truss tool to get this curved bottom truss started by using a curved ceiling plane.
2.    Use solids in elevation. Solids allow you to have the wood grain longitudinal on each long side and across the ends by copying the material, rotating it and saving it as another material.
3.    Use 3D moldings in elevation. The wood grain will be longitudinal on all sides.

      Hi All,
       
      "Roof Beams Appear as Solid Timbers not I-Beams as Preferred."
       
      I have a small insignificant detail problem that I wish to resolve and wonder if anyone has a Tip or Trick to fixing the fact that my Steel I Beams show up perfectly in my Posts and Deck patio beams but not in my roof beams.
       
      I have changed all of my defaults to I Beams in my settings to no avail, just curious if this a detail I will have to learn to live with or a glitch in Chief?
       
      Also I would like my I beams to show in the interior walls and imagine in order for this to happen I will need to create a niche and paint it black steel? Correct?
       
      Please see attached image.
       
      Thank you in advance,
      John

      Hello,
       
      I am working on an as built for a 1800's house. The door and window trim is 5 3/4" wide. My problem is that there a few instances where the door or window trim has been cut down to fit up against another wall. For example there's a window in one of the corners that is nearly up against the perpendicular wall. The trim on the left side of the window is 5 3/4" but the trim on the right side is around 3". 
       
      Is there a way to place the window further into the corner and cut off the trim? Can I make the trim on only side of the window a smaller width? This is a pretty common occurrence in our work and I would like to have a method of solving this issue.
       
      Thanks in advance for any help you can offer.

      I have a problem in one file where windows drop out, or are deleted when I place a new cabinet or adjust an existing cabinet that is against the wall containing the window.
      Anyone had this happen.  Any solutions?
      Thanks.

      Hello, I have attached my plan and the site picture from the backyard. Why is the brick veneer overlapping my basement window. What am I doing wrong? Site existing condition picture attached backyard

      My defaults seemed to have changed so that when I select a window - it is now showing temporary dimensions of the window casing / center of window / trim. (see attached screen shots)
      How do I change this to only show the window opening to wall stud? 
       
      thanks in advanced!
