Full Interior Half Wall Archway with columns like railings

Recommended Posts

Hi Folks, I been using Home Designer intensely for a couple of week and have managed to do almost anything I need but have come to halt trying to solve the best way to recreate a custom archway in my home.  I have tried many options but it almost like having a railing on a half with a full door arch.  So if anyone has tried to do this before  I would be most interested in understanding what combination of wall options you used.

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 below for how to turn them on, then 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.

I using the latest home designer 2020 architect.  I have been through lots and lots of self help options but really haven't come across anyone doing this.  Lots of doorway arches, exterior arches and dormers etc.  Maybe this is an architectural block I need to build.  Will turn on the signature options.

Place a doorway. Open the doorway's dialog box. Got to its "Arch" tab to make it have curved sides. Fill in the apparent objects using the Soffit Tool (found under "Cabinet Tools". A lot of custom objects can be located and emulated using Soffits or "Shapes" from the Library Browser. Often times you have to think "creative" to get things done.

Okay thank you I had started to do that and made the door glass so you don't see it. I.  One side is parquet design and the pic side is drywall.  Can I put columns on the soffit?

The soffit doesn't exactly go perpendicular in the arch but I guess if I make it 1' deep it might look ok.  Have you seen octagon columns.  See round square and other designs but nothing octangunal.
