Is it possible to create an exterior corner board trim PIO?

Recommended Posts

It would be great if we could write a script to generate exterior corner boards.

Be able to set width and thickness.

Example:

1x4, 1x6 etc...

5/4x4. 5/4x6 etc..

How about Quoins?

Spacing between

Height

Depth

Amount of left and right (think sides and front)

Joe,

If that is the one I am thinking of, I am the author of it.

Was created with version 9.5 I believe.

I need to dig up that code and see what I can do to tweak it.

Still works.

In the past year I've made the jump to having my finished CD elevations generated about 99% from my model. No more elevation drafting. Not crowns, not siding hatch, and thanks to your PIO not corner boards, either.

Once I got a handle on setting line weights by class and using NURBS curves in all my EAP objects I got very good and acceptable results. Even surprisingly good results.

Joe,

Thank you for your kind words.

Working on seeing if it is possible to do the same for opening trim.

You know EAP for trim.

Same for Crown and base.

We really should not have to go through all of that process.

Will need to revisit VectorScript again as I have not done so in years.

Again,

Thanks

We have slightly different terminology in New Zealand.

Can you show me an image of this looks like.

I might have that tool made.

Are you asking for a CornerBoard image (the boards that cap the siding profile at building corners) or for a trim profile that wraps a window opening? or both?

Incidentally, Vector Depot has a suite of tools known as Mouldings that does trim at openings. I haven't used it but it looks like it would be a great add-on.
