surface modeling archway question.....

hey all, i was wondering if anybody has suggestions on how to build rounded archways without using trim surfaces. i am using maya 4 and have tried a couple of different techniques (lofts & squares). i don't really get the result and clean surface i want.

just wondering if any one has an idea..

you need to use surfaces without trimming them?

Here's an IGES file I made with three untrimmed surfaces forming and arch.

Used Rhino, BTW...
