Wall detailing in interior - Cornices & Baseboards

Hello! 

Could someone please help me on where to find library with Cornices & Baseboards?  If not library, maybe it is in wall setting?  

 

To be concrete, I would like to create 4" floating baseboards but also some Flush baseboards (inside off wall with lines) . I haven't find tool how to make 1" deep hole in wall.. Which would be enough for me to do if I can....  

 

Not necessary but if someone can also let me know how to show in elevations that it has integrated led that would be fabulous. Or do I have to draw it in each room (I mean full house ehm).

I use complex profile beams for all trims like this. If it’s applied to the surface just place on a different layer with a unique intersection number saved to every layer combo.

Where you want a flush skirting you need to SEO it.

You can start with a simple complex profile and as you add to the level of detail you can update the profiles. As separate beams you can also add data to them.

Sometimes it’s faster to magic wand a whole room and then delete the parts you don’t want.

You can also create a grove for the LED tape and then drop  linear light object into the groove afterwards. It depends on the level of detail you are being paid for!
Then you can detail in 3D as well

I have one I'm working on but I won't have it ready until later this year.

Message me and maybe you can help with testing.

I wonder if someone would agree this should be easier and in actually wall setting rather than something custom made/ Fe, have in wall setting what kind of baseboard I want in full house and cornice type rather than model it in "complex setting/profiles". Modeling should not be this time consuming....... :(((
