    Default Sweep for arch on walls

    Registered forum members do not see this ad.

    I need to make an arc sitting on two walls, this is normally no problem except in this case the walls are curved. How do I make the arc (roof) to follow the curve.
    I tried Sweep with patch and guide rail, It works but do not follow the thickness of
    wall exactly.

    I am reluctant to post this as I think your entire design is flawed - but maybe it will give you some ideas.
    I suspect that what you really should do is get the "wall thickness" with a shell feature. In other words - do as a solid block and then shell.
    But then I don't really know your design intent.

    Looks like you solved it while I was working.

    Default Solution for arc

    My solution is not flaw! Here is example of the final result, a part of
    alumina-kiln. 550mm thick walls and arc. Assembled with bricks and mortar.
