Sweeping casing around a window and baseboard around a room.

Is it possible to do this in Truespace? What steps do you take? Thanks!

I've drawn my path with the polygon draw tool and saved it in the macro library. When I macro\sweep it around the path I get two adjoining paths. There should be an opening for a dorway. Thanks!

I had my export settings wrong in Rhno 3d when I converted from dwg to dxf. I've been able to create baseboard but I'm still working on casing. Any suggestions?

I would make the casing and baseboards as separate pieces using a 2D profile and the sweep tool or lathe tool. I wouldn't try to use a path for sweeping.
That stinks. I feel for you. Nature doesn't.

I found baseboard is best done with the path tool and casing is best done with the lathe tool.
