Arched Top Storefront

Recommended Posts

I have been using VW for many years, but entirely in 2d.  All my 3d work has been in SketchUp.  I am willing to give VW a try for my 3d work.  How would one create a two story arched top storefront window?

Hi, post an image of what you are after and someone can give you a few solutions. Many ways to do it, either using a curtain wall, standard windows or modelling one.

3D is so easy once you get your head around it. At least doing it in VW in 3D first you or your draftsperon won't have to redraw everything.

Ditch sketchup and use 3D VW and you will same time and money.

My hope is that I can avoid redundant work.  So far, it is slow going, but I expected that.  Anyway,  the attached screenshot shows the -rectangular- storefont wall I created.  It also shows the shape I want it to have (the plane with the arched top).

 

Thank you for any help you can provide.Screen Shot 2017-02-01 at 2.02.37 PM.png

I would like to maintain the object as a 'window' so that it is included in my window schedules.

In the window settings you can choose Top Shape>Segmented and set the rise.

I thought the window tool was not going to work for me, until I found the custom sash options on 'General' in the Window Settings.  It was fussy, but I got there.  Thank you!

 

Now I need to figure out how to make a two story window insert into walls on the 1st and 2nd floor ....

@DrakeHi, Have a look at one of my old videos as to how you can do this.
