Drawing a wall perpendicularly from a curved wall stand point

Hello, I am looking for methods of drawing a wall perpendicularly from a curved wall stand point.
Appreciate every single tip.

Hi @sipofcoffee,

So, to draw a straight wall perpendicular to a curved one you should:

 

1) Use snap guides to define the curve center point.

 

2) From center point you can draw your radial wall based on the guide line drawn from the center point.

 

3) Trim the part you don’t need & keep the other.

 

4) Rotate many copies as you like using that center point & radius.

Alternatively, set a snap guide along your curved wall.  Then when you draw your straight wall a perpendicular snap guide appears.

Hi @RobPhill33,

I was about to say this solution but if you want to make a copy of this radial wall you won’t be able to adjust its angle.

 

So when you define the center point and may place a hotspot as a reference that helps if you need later to drag or rotate these radial walls.

I believe if you select the radial wall you can still copy/rotate around the center of the curved wall in order to duplicate.  Either way works though.
