Building a Sub development entrance wall

Recommended Posts

All I'm trying to build a wall roughly 12' x 19'2" and decorate it with with columns and caps.  Its starting to occur to me I might as well draw all of it on paper as either my approach is all wrong or the program is all wrong for this type of thing.  I have to use exterior walls rather than landscape walls because I have to put stucco bands, caps, and stone edges on it.  ( I would like to point out that leaves undesirable wall construction materials exposed in 3d view.)  I am using back splashes to create the stucco bands and inner designs of the signs.  I could build the wall faster than I can design this stupid sign. LOL.  Anyone have any pro tips on building designed landscape walls.

Do you have a sketch or picture you could upload.


 


You may not need to use a wall at all. A slab or soffit might work, or if using a wall, a solid concrete one may work.


 


I can sense your frustration, but wee need more information to help, including which product you are using -- see below.

It helps if we know what title (Suite, Pro etc) and version (2014, 2015 etc) you are using. You can add this info to your signature by clicking on your user name at the top right of the page, click My Settings, then Signature on the left.

I would not bother with walls. Build everything from solids. Once done you can group everything and save it as an Architectural Block to make moving it easier.

 

A custom countertop will accept moldings if needed.

Use shapes. Slabs, soffits, shapes from the library -- there are wedges, rounds etc that you can use -- search for "closed".
