Architectural Molding

Recommended Posts

Is there a way to assign casings to door and window objects? I can't imagine that drawing paths and extruding profiles for each opening is the recommended method, but I don't see a way to attach a polyline symbol in door and window settings. Similar question for base moldings. I see a Marionette method for crown moldings in the forum, but I'm having trouble getting that to work. I will try again if that is the current best practice.

Give a try with "Moulding plugins", a set of tools I developed sometime ago for the Vectordepot Market (now shut off).
Start here:

https://fitplot.it/vwplugins/mouldings.html

The tools are all updated for Vectorworks 2018.
I have decided to share these plugins free of charge, but if you find it useful in your work, well, a little PayPal contribution is welcome.

I use the Copper Beech Millwork profiles that shipped with VW2017 and extrude along a path - works great
