    Wainscoting help PLEASE!!

    Is there anyway to apply wainscoting besides just using the individual panels?

    Im trying to apply it to a library which of course has windows and its not like base molding that cuts where doors/windows/doorways are. I was expecting something like crown/base/chair moldings with intelligent behaviors but ITS NOT!!!

    Im frustrated because if you do it by panels or even stretching it and then click on double or triple it ends up with a bunch of mixed matches sections that arent equal in size.

    I tried doing a room molding, wall covering and many other attempts but most of them you cant even choose wainscoting for a choice! Ive never had to use wainscoting in my designs before and now Im grateful I never have because these are cumbersome.

    I understand that wainscoting isnt a molding according to chief but it should be since it lines the room very similarly. I must be missing something here because all other moldings are easier to apply!

    Thanks.

    How detailed do you need it?Would the wall covering work?
    Just a thought, use pony wall and have the bottom with it so it shows as a thicker wall.

    Wall covering is more just a paint on a section of the wall.
    Not sure if there is an easy/fast way to get the 3d model..
    Mostly depends on what is needed for how much time you want to spend on it..

    Yes, I believe you can. I believe there is a tutorial on it. I believe that if you select the room, make a room pline molding out of that, you now have the basis for a molding that will cut for doors and windows.

    What I am saying, and I think this is true, you can not make a pline and then convert it to a molding and expect it to cut for doors and windows. You must first select the room and make a pline molding out of that.

    Once you have the room pline molding you need to select the molding to be applied and that is in one of the libraries.

    Again I am going off of my poor memory, but I believe all of this is explained in an online tutorial.

    The problem with using the molding method is that you will need two--one for window height, and another for below window height.

    I've never used paneled wainscot, but I've done beadboard using both the pony-wall (10) and the wall-covering (X1) method. Actually, if I wanted paneled wainscot, I'd be experimenting with the cabinet tools.

    Thanks, that's what I was thinking Allen, but was hoping I was missing something (happens quite a bit)

    Good to see you posting again Jason.

    You might try using the soffit tool as I do for bathroom wall tile. Edit the thickness, height from floor and the height, don't know how it will take to actual wainscott but it works fine for bead board.

    Panels decision

    I don't see any problem with the Chief panels. I am going to assume doors and windows cannot be moved, and some intelligent input is required of the user to get the whole thing looking right. In my illustration there is some adjustment of size and style to get everthing to fit.

    I wanted to try it.
    Wall on the left has "wall covering"
    Right is a "Pony wall"
    I used a "Room Molding" for the chair rail.
    That cuts out for door and windows..

    Only difference is if you look at the window casing..

    Doing panels might be harder..

    I guess I should have been a bit more detailed in my description. Yes the beadboard and wall covering works great! However when it comes to the double paneled or just paneled wainscoting, thats another issue.

    I havent tried the pony wall tool yet I will try that. I found that both the wall covering and polyline tool works great EXCEPT when dealing with paneled wainscoting.

    I cant figure another way to do it that looks nice and even, meaning the panels are evenly sized. I tried stretching it (like a cabinet) and selecting double or triple but even then it turns out looking strange.

    Does anyone know if theres another way to do wainscoting PANELING besides placing the tiny sections individually? I know there must be a more efficient way.

    Thanks.

    Chad,
    Can you post a pic of what results you got. I don't think I'm following you.

    I thought this is something you wanted.
