Complex wall opening

Recommended Posts

I'm looking for a way to model an opening in a wall as shown on the attached picture.

 

Also attached my first attempts, any help would be very welcome..

Under the AEC menu, Select "Create Wall Recess".  It will insert the solid wherever it is located in 3d space.

 

Wall recesses sometimes randomly disappear, they also sometimes display oddly in plan.  They also sometimes don't regenerate from VW backup files.  All this means that they may need to be reinserted.  In instances like this, however they are truly useful.

Cheers!

What's the best way to model that solid correctly? Did this one with subdivision..
