Apply molding profiles to rooms, or manually draw in molding polylines for custom moldings. Convert 2D shapes into a variety of 3D objects.
CAD lines and polylines of any shape can be converted to 3D objects easily.
Use the Polyline Union edit button to combine two or more closed polylines or solids into a single object.
Use the Polyline Subtract edit button to subtract the area of one object that overlaps another object of the same type to create a third, new object.
A variety of objects can be created using solids and shapes. In this video we edit a polyline solid into a fireplace with chimney.
Adding Crown Molding, Base Moldings and Countertop Edge Profile Moldings to Cabinets
Place a Bathtub and create a custom tub platform using the custom countertop tool
Control moldings using the Room Specification dialog, the Wall Specification dialog, or by creating a Room Molding Polyline
Leverage CAD Tools and Chief’s molding tools to create custom 3D objects. Draw a section view profile for your object and then extrude it into a custom size and shape using the molding functionality.
Use 3D molding polylines and polyline solids to model custom recessed and raised panel wainscoting.
Polyline Solids are easy to use 3D modeling tools that can allow you to design custom items, including furniture pieces. Learn how to use these tools, along with CAD editing, to create a coffee table and then convert the design into a Furniture symbol. Save it to your Library Catalog for reuse later.
