measure the length of cornice required, example 1000 mm unit, the length of cornice required would be 1000mm. then if u want to cut your joint, example 45 degree, you place your mark on the area of the cornice that comes into contact with the unit, then hold the cornice, as it would sit on the units, and cut with chopsaw..sounds complicated but it gets easier

Fitting Cornice, most respectable manufacturers give info sheet giving exact details of how they recommend cornice be fitted. Rule of thumb, after first piece make all pieces fit in the same way.
