Soldier Course on Retaining Wall

Recommended Posts

I have an 8" CMU wall, 1" air gap and a brick veneer.  In 3D view the two layers are visible.  In my house there is a soldier course that tops the wall and finishes it off.  I tried the soffit trick but that didn't look good in 3D.  Is there a way to do this?  I should add that a section of the retaining wall is curved.

Thanks
Alan

2 slabs, one on top for the soldier course.

That is a great idea -- didn't think of slabs.

Thanks

How did you create the curved slab?  

Thanks

Draw a slab, use the Change Line to Arc tool. After you have shaped the first on, use Copy/Paste in Place then edit the height while it's still selected.

Im not sure if I got what you are describing but ended up with this which is two slabs.  I can't change the arc to match the wall though.

It's a bit tedious, but it can be done. You can vary the shape by grabbing and moving any of the edit handles.
