Is there a way to create a custom 3d arch in pro 2019?

Recommended Posts

I recently purchased Home Designer pro 2019 and had an application that needed a custom 3d arch as a part of a gable decoration.  I was unable to find a way to create this in pro 2019.  Is there a way to do this?  I've done a pretty good search before asking this question.  Everything in the design  could be created using soffits and shapes except for the arch.  I will take a look at the backsplash suggestion.  Thanks for the replies.  I've viewed your solutions to many other problems - keep them coming.  Signature updated.

Can you please post a photo of a similar outcome to what you wish to do? Most arch situations are created using a wall with a doorway created in it and then "Arched" by way of the doorway's "Arch" tab. Using the doorway's dialog box you can make it appear to have many difference Architectural appearances. Like any preprogrammed object it also has limitations past which it cannot go, thus the request for a photo of something similar.

I see you said Pro, but ...

 

Answers often depend on which title (Suite, Pro etc) and version (2018, 2019 etc) you are using.

 

You can help everyone by adding this info to your signature (see mine for an example) by clicking on your user name at the top right of the page, click Account Settings, then Signature on the left.

 

Doing so makes it always available, and keeps others from having to hunt for it.

 

And, turn on signature display too.

You should have asked :)

 

Post an image or two of what you were wanting to model.

 

Pro is rather limited in the shapes it can create natively. 

 

The Custom Backsplash tool is sometimes useful for odd shapes.
