Curvered Attic Wall

Don't want to sound too discouraging, but I really think it might be a good idea for you to either hire a tutor or hire a professional to do the design work for you...or maybe even both (depending on the situation).

I agree with Michael.

You need to do a bit of homework yourself and/or get some training,

Most users on here won't feel like helping unless they can see that you have made an effort to help yourself first.

This shouldn't be the first port of call for you to learn the basics.

If I understand your intent, you want the white portion to be arched to match the window; IOW - you're only concerned about achieving an arched material transition. This can be done quite easily with a Material Region.

 

1) Shoot a Cross Section/Elevation View:

2) Turn off the Patterns, 3D Views layer (to reduce clutter), then Create a CAD Detail from View:

3) Draw a closed CAD polyline in the shape you want. I drew mine in red just for visibility:

4) Select the shape, Copy it, then switch back to your Cross Section/Elevation View and Paste Hold Position. This places the shape in the correct position:

5) With the shape still selected, click on the Convert Polyline icon to bring up the dialog box. Make sure Material Region is selected and click OK:

6) In the Material Region Specification dialog box click the Edit Button to assign the material you desire. Leave the Cut Finish Layers of Parent Object checked:

7) Turn on the Patterns, 3D Views layer. Shoot an Orthographic Overview to make sure you like the result. If not, modify things as necessary. You can always return to the Cross Section Elevation View and modify the Material Region polyline to fine-tune the shape:

I did not mean Robert was patient in how he created the wall.  I will leave it to you from here.

It's the same principal, just do it over your entry and follow the steps he's supplied. You can also use a polyline solid to do this. Sounds like you're pretty new to Chief. David J. Potter offers training, just check out the Offering services section of the forum. Also great places to start are here...  http://www.chieftutor.com/chiefx1.html Here... https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCFTWTw42JnhnfH08WovDBBw Here.. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC7jB5YPuzy5utIP1tF3w2mQ and here...https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC6wIJDMZNyghLQ03SnAiwBA. Reading the manual is also highly recommended. Some  Most of these users have studied this software for years and busted their butts to get to the level they are at. They are also very busy men and women. It can be frustrating when someone asks a question many users believe to be common knowledge, that can be answered by searching through the manual. I can't begin to count the number of times a video or the manual has answered a question I had, saving me the time of posting here on the forum and waiting for someone kind enough to take time out of their day to answer. A little homework never hurt anyone. Good Luck!

No like a curve not to match the window but like an entry

 

davidinvest,

 

Perhaps you could post a sketch of what you're trying to achieve.

I think he is trying to add a barrel arched ceiling on his front porch. Yes?

 

Maybe? But the "white wall" and the "brown wall" below appear to be in the same plane (at least to my eye). I guess we won't know until the OP clarifies things for us.

Do you have SSA? Are you using X7? I really don't feel like going back through all of these posts to see if you've already posted that information.

I think Joey and Rob answered this thread. I just provided you with some information on how to achieve your goal. I really can't take any credit. But thank you.
