Vanity arched header - How to?

Recommended Posts

I've tried to do this in CA unsuccessfully several times and have resorted to modeling it in Sketchup and importing into CA.

(See Attached)

I'm certain this is possible in Chief, at least I hope it is.

Could someone explain the best way to accomplish it please?

 

I also am having an issue with wall ends not capping on Straight Half-Walls.

Was this not fixed in X6 along with the regular height wall ends?

 

Thanks for the help,

 

Toby

This is very similar to a question I just asked.  I want an arch with two columns.

A curved ceiling plane would make the surface, but then you would have to deal with the vertical surface and its bottom shape.  So, to do it best and quickly, just model the center and the flanking rectilinear soffits as one polyline solid.

That was the word I needed Mr. Davis; Polyline Solid. I watched the video 828

after searching for "Polyline Solid" and the solution was evident.

I had been trying to start with a Polyline Solid rather than convert a polyline AFTER creating the curved arch.

 

What a great resource this Forum is.

 

So, does anyone have a solution to the short wall cap missing issue?

 

Thanks again,

 

Toby
