Angles & Trim

Recommended Posts

I am working with "log post 1" or a cylinder shape or "8" single log piece" any will do. I am trying to make a 45 degree brace as well as some angled pergola pieces @ +/-30 degrees. How can I place these pieces at an angle.

Also, I would like to add a 1x5 trim board to the roof fascia boards, how can I do that? I could make the piece out of a shape or even use CA-001 but, again how can I place it an an angle? The shape handles don't allow for this (rotating just distorts the shape) and there is nothing in the Specification box for angles. 

Thanks.

Don't think you can. Probably need to use different software like SketchUp to model them, then import.

Search my YouTube channel for custom backsplash for some ideas.

 

A sloped soffit might also work.

Ok, thank you.

Angles, other than 90 degrees, are like an inherent part of architecture & building. It would be helpful to have the ability to create and work with them in 3D.

I agree. This is one of the many reasons I'm now using Chief Architect and not Home Designer.

 

I'm able to add shadow boards (extra fascia trim) and moldings to represent a drip edge, for example, as well as a frieze that may also be multiple moldings, and define my own molding profiles, all easily and automatically.

Yeah, that looks nice. It's just Chief Architect is a more than I can justify for how I use it. However, that said, the amount of time I have spent  trying to figure out workarounds...
