My folks run a video business and they gave there version of lw 5 when they upgraded to 7 so now I have 5 at home and have used 7 at there office so I know about the knife tool in seven and would like to know if there is somthing like this in five or a plugin I can get.

This is what I want to do. I want to make an arch that looks like it is made out of block. This is what I have, a disk about 5m on the y, and 1/2m on z so it is 12/m wide then I made another disk in background 1/2m smaller and do a subtract to form the arch. To make the block affect I do a bevel of about .05 inset and .025 shift.

This will bevel the top and bottom curves of the arch but not the back or front faces. With the knife tool I can knife the area of the model where I want the arches and then do the bevels. The object I'm doing is a tutorial of a castle but it was made for 5.6 which has knife so I have to work around some areas does anyone have some help please!!!!!

Thanks much
