Wall Niche Enclosure/Return/

Not applicable
Evening All,

Designing a project with 800mm thick Rammed Earth Walls, I need to show 'Enclosures'/Reveals/Returns on the edges of windows, door & niches.

I have windows and door working correctly, however is doesn't seem possible to do this with a wall niche?, im using 'Wall Niche 20'. See image below.

The Wall Niche GDL Object is much simpler than Windows in this regard so I don't think you will be able to find a parameter that achieves this.
I would probably work over that detail with lines and fills to get the exact desired 2D representation.

Hi Laszlo,

Yes I agree, I think fills are the only option.
