Anyone?
Bumping this back up to the top. There's gotta be a way to do this.
Create a "splayed arch top" on the door.

so...here's something "close" to what I need.
according to the graphics being depicted in the pulldown menu...it appears a "custom reveal" can indeed be created for an opening and an opening with an "arched top" none the less.................HOW.
How can a custom reveal be done?
How can then the custom reveal be selected to be part of the opening parameters?

Please guys.....

I found this article but...Holy 773H........it's like reading a "stereo manual" when I try to understand this explanation.
This is what I need. i can then make that 1'-2" thick wall into 3 walls (each comprising of 3 components - 1 compenent in the middle will house the arched door, the other 2 components will be the walls that host the reveal with splayed opening)....but holy cow...it's 'stereo manual reading' 101 all over again....

This looks ridiculous!
A shame that there seams to be no easier solution.

Agreed....on the comment above.
So...any other ways to make a "splayed arched top opening" or "door type"?

If I were doing this, I would put in the arched door. Then, draw a Morph in plan on one side (although I guess you could do both at once) in the shape of the desired reveal, and extrude the morph around the door perimeter using the "tube" option. Then SEO out the morph(s).

See https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_EGdK-D7zXY for an example with an applied trim, but it would work the same way with an inset morph as an SEO operator.

humm...that's a good idea Richard.
what I did was to put a "void space" object where it's in a layer that SEO out of the wall. but I'm going to try the "morph" around the wall idea.

here's the final result.
what a P.I.T.N.S. guys....seriously.
wow...never thought a curved arched top door with splayed edges at the jambs would cause this much grief.....just wow.
