Circular hole in ceiling

Recommended Posts

Is there a way to make a circular hole in the ceiling? My client would like a domed feature in the entryway ceiling but I can't seem to figure out a way to place a circular hole in the ceiling.

 

Thanks

Draw circle. Right click, Convert Polyline, Convert to Hole in Ceiling.

Make 2 copies of the circle.  You can use them for molding lines that will follow the circle.

I have done this using different geometric objects like Eric points out (octogon, hexagon, circle, rectangle) which you can then make to look like a raised area by capping the "hole". How complicated or sophisticated is up to you, your client and your willingness and patience. You use the available 3D modeling tools to model the effect a step at a time.
