Create a round baseboard

Post by Kenal » Mon 15. Oct 2018, 19:15

Hi all. I'm new here. I'm trying to create a round baseboard, but am struggling with doing so. I need an actual circle. Any tips or step-by-step guides?

Thanks!

Hi Kenal,

Once you've added the baseboard via File > Add Baseboard you can use the baseboard border tool from the toolbar (shortcut L) to edit individual borders. Each border can be either straight or a circle segment.

So you could e.g. insert a plain rectangle baseboard via the Baseboard Assistant with minimal width (e.g. 5mm) and turn the left/right borders into circle segments with 180 degrees!

Cheers,
Jan
