Molding

Recommended Posts

How do I set up the default in X5 to get both a Crown and a Base molding.  Each time I try I get Base, Chair and Crown and they are all the same molding profile that I set up one of them.  I seem to be missing something.

The above was all in X6, however X5 is the same procedure just looks a little different.

I established the base molding first.  Then I changed to crown molding and chose a profile.  Now my base molding reflects the choice for the crown molding.  Additionally, I did not choose the chair molding option and yet the chair molding also reflects the crown molding profile.

I found part of my problem.  Somehow the ceiling height in the specific room was lower than required. 

 

I've been able to make it work.

 

Thank you for your help.

Richard,

 

As Bill said, you have to add additional mouldings which you are not doing.  See my first screenshot above.  Notice I have 3 distinct moulding profiles.

 

Also...from your second to last post it looks like you correctly set the crown moulding for the dining area but not the living room.

I think you are clicking on the "Select" button instead of the "Add New" button.  You use the select button to change the molding to a different one from the library.  You use the add new button to add another molding that is separate from the first one.
