Help!!! Exterior crown molding

Recommended Posts

Help, I am a builder and trying to finish up a home design.  It is customary in this area to put crown molding on the exterior of our homes below the soffit where it meets the exterior sheathing (i.e.brick, siding,etc).  I can get it on the fascia, and i can manipulate a soffit and create it easily below hip roofs, sheds, etc......at this location.  My problem arises when I get to the gable.  I have tried sloped soffits, shapes, etc- no luck.... advise anyone???

I think this is something that would require an upgrade to the Premier version of the software to accomplish easily.

You might be able to create an object like this in SketchUp though, and import it in to Home Designer?

You can apply a molding profile (crown mold) to a soffitt,and resize it so only the crown mold shows and the copy-paste around the outside of you home provided you have either Architectural or Home Designer Pro that is, I do not think Suite, Essentials or Interior Designer will do this, take a look.

I have home designer pro 2015.  I tried the soffit with crown- which is great for running horizontal or parallel, but I can't rotate it to put it in the gable.  where it comes to a point and is diagonal. Thoughts?

Upgrade to Chief Architect Premier, in that application such things are much easier and included.
