how to model this

Recommended Posts

Please see attached PDF. I have a millwork unit with a 3"x3" post on either end of a radiused curb. Projecting up from the curb are 1/2" x 2-1/2" slats at an angle, but evenly spaced along the curve. I need to model a 1-1/2" thick x 3" wide top cap to join up to the square caps on each end post which are at different heights.

Can someone point me in the right direction on how to model this? I'm sure it involves NURBS, but I have tried a numbers of times and can't seem to get it to work.

Thanks for any help you can offer.

Hi Ride,

You actually can do this with a curved wall.

1. Place a curved wall (at the desired width) in Plan view.

2. Set the Z-height and wall height as needed so that the wall is at the correct position at the lower part.

3. In a Front or Side view, use the Reshape tool to move the top and bottom of other end of the wall as needed.

Sorry to be brief. I'm heading out the door...
