Cut hole in soffit for bath

Recommended Posts

I'm trying to put an oval drop in bath tub in a soffit as I need to tile the surround.  my problem is the 3d model shows the soffit through the bath.  I also have the same problem when i want to use a custom basin in a stone top.  The only way I have managed to achieve this is by using lots of small soffits to fill in the gaps around the bath. 

I'm aware how to do this using a soffit for a square bath as I can then butt the soffit up to the sides.

 

Any suggestions on soffit not going through the wall would also be a great help.  images attached.

Use a Custom Countertop. They may be shaped where soffits cannot.

 

I show a gap only so you can see how to form the basic shape. You would close the gap.

Thanks Eric, so that would be to use the break line tool and play around to get the right cut out for the bath?  There is no way to trace around the oval shape i need for a clean cut?

Exactly. Place the tub in the countertop, then shape the countertop to fit.

 

Once you understand the CAD tools used for shaping things -- countertops, slabs, roofs etc, it goes quickly.

 

You might want to block the tub and countertop when yo are done.

Not in the Home Designer line.
