Sounds like you are looking for a commercial plugin called lwcad (http://www.wtools3d.com/)...it has a lot of features that make modeling buildings easier.

Hey there fellow mate.

yepp as mentioned, if you want extrudes and profiles with pre-made curves and curves made by your own, you need LW-cad.

You probably want to look at profiler, wich extrudes selected curves from a profile you choose, or engraver wich create profiles from library on to your selected polygons.

now, there seem to be a small competition developing similar tools for construction work between Modo and LW-cad, but thatīs all good.

Personally I think Modo has implemented the profiles in a better way, but it still lacks lotīs of tools that lw-cad seem to have.

Then again.. Modo has some other amazing tools that neither Lightwave or lw cad are close to up today, and Its very much built
in Modo without plugins.

To be on the safe side, save your beer money, and invest in Modo+zbrush and if you by any chance get some money over..try Rhino aswell:)




Edit..Note! there are most certainly other techniques and tools to acheive those results with free plugins and native tools in lightwave, but not with the same
interactive UI and workflow.
