    Default Mouldings on Exterior Arches

    I have a single family res with 9 different exterior arches which I want to provide a raised stucco band over. My first approach is to make separate in place families for each arch. Is there a better way using any type of family in lieu of in place family?

    A. Make a generic wall based family.
    B. Build it into the window or door family.
    C. Nest a generic family inside the window/door family.

    In this situation the arches are open under (ie porches and entries.)
    However thank you for my next question with the arch windows and doors.

    Sorry, went away for a long weekend.
    I know how to edit the profile of a wall and that will give me the arch. What I want to do is put a raised stucco band over the arches.

    Its quite fast to just add a thicker wall, set to stucco material, and edit its profile, join geometry, to create a "stucco band effect "

    I add an in place sweep w/ a profile from Fypon or Foam Factory to the family. It's really fast.
