An obvious application for profiles is the creation of moldings and edge treatments. Simply define the shape for a crown or baseboard molding, and store it enabled for use with the Beam tool. Then draw the beam along the edge of the walls in a room, at the proper height, and one instantly has a molding for 3D views and sections.If one combines one or more moldings into the profile for a wall itself (as in one example from the very first illustration of this article), then when drawing the wall, the moldings are placed automatically. Using the vertical stretch zone in the Profile Manager allows variable wall heights or thicknesses to be used without affecting the shape or size of the molding itself. A bullnose or other edge treatment can be added to a counter or table with the use of a profile. Even a complex table outline can be edged using the magic wand in a single step. Here is an example of a freeform shape, originally created with the Spline tool, that has been autotraced with the magic wand to create a slab for the table top.
