      Hello all,

      I am trying to create a shaped backsplash similar to the one in the attached image. I’ve been trying to do this with a surface, but I cannot figure out how to create curved lines this way short of  freehanding it. What am I missing? Surely there must be a way to create curved lines on a surface in elevation? If not, does anyone have any tips on how I might create a shaped backsplash like this? Thanks in advance!

      Hi Courtney,

      The only way to create such a shape in the elevations is if you were to freehand it. There is an ‘easier’ way to freehand it however.

      In Design, you can go to your Annotations tab and use a Rectangle for your backsplashes base. Then you can use either the Circle or Elliptical Arc for curve of your backsplash.

      When doing this, make sure to turn off the Item Snap and the Ortho tool. This will ensure that you can create as many points as needed to make your shape.

      Hope this helps out a bit!
