The spec "Floor to Top" is this measured from the top of the subfloor to the top of the window frame; or from the top of the finished floor? It seems to be from top of subfloor.

 

Also for example with a Full Camera view, when you set the camera height, is this height measured from the subfloor, or from the top of the finished floor?

Ed for windows you have three choices - absolute relative to 0' - 0", from floor(sub-floor) or from finished floor. Don't forget you will have your rough opening(whatever default you set) as well for header height.

Basically most things are from floor height which is usually 0 for things that are measured to like camera...not sure if it would measure from terrain as some thing on outside can have that behaviour.

      Hello,
      I am working on an exterior ray trace, and I would like the windows to be slightly reflective instead of transparent. What is the right material and properties for this look? I tried to make the glass a mirror, but it turned out really dark in my ray trace. I attached a picture (not mine) that shows the look I am going for. 
      I am using Chief X12. 
      thank you!

      I'm looking to see if there is a way to separate the material between the frame and the reveal of a window (or door).
      When painting the frame it also paints the reveal the same material, and visa versa.
      I have been a long time Chief user but never found a solution - so hoping someone has a good trick. Using X13 currently.
       
      Thanks in advance!

      Hello,

      I am trying to find the best way to model a Georgian window, with an angled inset into the wall's thickness, and a window along the inner edge (see the attached image). Note that this isn't a box window - there is no "bump out" - the window is set into the wall. I thought about using a wall niche, but I do not know how to create the angle. 

      Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

      Hi, 
      I was trying out Chief Architect X12 and wanted to do a corner window, but as you can see on the pictures, sash does not go all the way in the corner, but rather than that is cut off before it.
      Does anyone have any suggestion how to solve this?
       
      Thank you in advance.
       
      (on the last picture there is also added a post, but that does not affect bug at all)

      Is there a macro ruby command that I can add to my window schedule to calculate the glazing area of a window
