Architecture tools - wall on elipse?
Read 1350 times

Is it possible to use the Architectural Walls tool to make a wall as an elipse in plan view?  I've tried the Convert to Wall tool but no luck and tried to edit the nodes too - no luck.    Is there some "hidden" command...well, hidden to me anyway...?

Many thanks

If you explode the elipse 1 time you will get a polyline ho you can conwert to a wall

Edited:  Ah, but now exploded, the window, door and other Architecture Fancy Work is INOP.  !  Too good to be true I suppose.

Tested in 18.2 and in work ok here.
The window must stand between the " segment ", TC dont like it if it stand over 2 segment and cut out only 1 side

The option here is to explode the window and wall, make them solid and cut out a pice of the wall and after that bend the window to the radius you need and put in
( i never tested this but i quess it will work becouse i have made a "solid window" and bend it with a PPM script )
