I've been trying to make a door frame with a custom complex profile, but the corners aren't connecting because the vertical part is a column, and the horizontal part is a beam.
I've been trying to figure out if maybe i could make a vertical beam, or a horizontal column so the two parts of the frame would be the same type of element, but there seems to be no way of doing this.
The easiest way would be to place a small profile column and then convert it into a morph.
Then just tube the end surface.
Or you could copy the fill from the profile editor, paste it in plan and magic wand a morph to it.
Unfortunately editing the profile of the morph after it is tubed is very awkward.
You are better off deleting and doing it again.
Shells are another option as these can be rotated around the frame and the ends can be mitred.
The profile of a shell can be edited, but you need to do it for each length of the architrave (top and sides of your frame).
It is a shame that shells can't use a complex profile.
I am not sure if there are any objects in the default library for an architrave that will allow you to select custom profile - or maybe the default doors/windows have an option?
I don't use the GS library so I don't know without investigating it.
It is possible to create an object if you are handy with GDL scripting.
The company I work for has an architrave object that has pre-set profiles and our doors/windows actually have the architraves built-in.
Sorry I can't share these objects.
