Best way to make an archway

Recommended Posts

Does anyone have a suggestion on making an archway opening into a room? Should I use a cased opening door? If so, how do I turn off the jamb, (setting everything to 0")?

CC, go ahead and create the opening that you want using Cased Opening from the Configuration Menu in the OIP and while in the OIP choose round from the Top Shape menu.

This will give round opening with no trim.

Try it out and I hope it works for you.

And yes, go ahead and set the jamb thickness to "0" and you'll get an arch...furthermore, if you mess around with the springline setting when a segmented shape is selected, you can get different arched shapes.
