Making a curved profile

A-D

Hi, 

I have made a custom profile wall. I am trying to make it curved. How do I do this? 

Thanks 🙂

If you mean curved in plan, then just use one of the curved geometry methods.

Or if you have placed a straight wall, you can curve it with the pet palette options.

Hi Barry

Does this work if it is a custom profile? 

This is my custom profile wall

This is what happened when I tried to curve it:

 How can I make my custom profile curve like a standard wall?

Thanks

What you show is what you will get.

The complex profile shape is extruded along the length of the wall.

It is not a wall you can bend.

 

If you need it to be a wall, then all I can suggest is to place a regular curved wall.

Intersect it with your profile wall.

Then do a Solid Element Operation to form an 'intersection'.

Make sure the curved wall and complex profile wall are in different layers with different intersection group numbers otherwise they will automatically try to trim each other.

My layer for the complex profile wall is also set to 'wire frame'.

Hide the layer for the operator (complex profile wall).

This way it is still a wall and you can add doors and windows.

Otherwise you could use a 'shell' and adjust the perimeter  (boundary) shape of the shell.
