Window Niche Rectangular should follow curve of wall

Anonymous

Hi Archicad Gurus! I would like to ask something about the Wall Niche Rectangular 16 object under window tool. Is it possible to curve the niche both the outer edge of the wall and inner? Some ArchiCAD users say, it used to be possible in lower versions but I can’t seem to figure it out. I’ve tried creating it in AC version12 and I just had a poor result. I’ve attached image for your reference done in AC16.

Please if there is a better way kindly show me how to do it in AC16 if possible?

Thanks in advance!

Works here. Under Parameters > 2D Representation > turn Show Symbol Fill off, set Niche Fill in 2D to Solid Fill and the pens to a white pen.

Hi David, thanks for this. Does the 3D model follows the curve as well? that's my main concern actually. Thanks again!

Like the plan view: curved outer edge, straight back.
