Brick Window Sill?

Recommended Posts

Can HD Pro automatically generate an angled exterior brick window sill?

 

I know I can create one manually if I need to using geometric shapes.

Only way I know of is using the in the sill area of the window specification and use one of the course brick options in the core catalog. I don't think you can specify the angle or anything though. I just gives you the general appearance of a sill

No, not really just as jlliles87 indicated above. In Chief Premier one easily can do this and many, many other choices but it also costs a lot more than Home Designer software does.

Yes, the problem is there sadly aren’t any molding profiles with the size and shape of a brick ledge, so all you can do in HD Pro is disable the exterior sill and manually create a ledge with soffit, closed geometric shape or custom counter or backsplash tool.

Another option for you may be the Azek sill profiles? They have a historic sill and a subsill. Both have a little angle to them and may represent the look you want?

Thanks, I hadn't noticed the Azek profiles.  There's still not a proper brick ledge, but some of these are thicker and probably the best option short of manually creating a sill, or upgrading to chief to customize your own molding profile.
