I am modeling a building and using horizontal lines pattern to show stone face. I would like to create an arched window that will have a stone arche above the window, I mean a pattern of stone arch that will trim the horizontal lines correctly. Also I would like the plan to show that the stone material (the wall has 20 cm cmu core and 5cm stone face) will wrap inside the window open 10 cm, and that is where the window fram will sit. Really thanks in advance Yol

Yol, you should try to use the void extrusion and cut the wall in your window family template first and then model the desired geometry with different types of extrusions. It is important to use reference planes and for added control asign the correct subcategories. The stone joints could be shown as model lines I attached a window with stone suround that sits in a compound wall for your reference. Hope this helps Fabian

Yol, Make a copy of your window family. Edit the window family copy. Edit the CUT OPENING to reflect the arched head you need. Add the components to the stone arch head with an extrusion from the exterior elevation view. Switch to the reference plan and lock the extrusion to the proper reference plane, either with additional reference planes or dimensions. Be sure to define the extrusion with the materials of choice when you create it. Using the CUT OPENING will cut the wall and any wall sweeps it hits. Also wall opening wraps will work to close the wall in plan like you want. Visbility - If you want the stone to show in plan, but only when cut in plan view, be sure to un select under visiblity show in plan and RCP, otherwise your glass sash will not show in plan. Keep the cut in plan and RcP selected. Now if you want the stone to show, simply change the view depth. Post edited on 2005-04-11 09:14:48 Post edited on 2005-04-11 09:15:35

Thank you for the help. It does not sound simple but I will try and give here some feedback. Yol
