Crown Molding at Invisible Wall

Recommended Posts

I used to have a deck where my sunroom is now.  Part of that deck was under the second floor that was supported by a beam.  To separate the area that was under the second floor and the addition I added a wall (where the beam) is and made it invisible.  I tried to add crown moldings to the sunroom but the molding would not display on that invisible wall. Any idea how I can get the molding to display?
Thanks

Alan

Model your beam with a soffit. They will accept molding like a wall.

I have the room divider along the center of the soffit but one side does not join the crown molding correctly -- see screen shots.

How does it look from the people perspective -- not from a position only a termite could be in?  :)

I was thinking the same thing, from the room it would look perfect!  :)

 

Also my understanding is that at least one of the pieces should always extend to the wall, while the intersecting piece is trimmed carefully with a coping saw to join it.  If instead they are mitred there can be visible gaps in the corners with expansion/contraction.  I'm not sure which method the software uses, but I suspect it's a mitred corner.  No idea what's happening in Alan's picture though!

You are correct -- the only way to tell if it's not mitered is from above.
