Keystone Lintel

I have a small job to do that needs a keystone window lintel.  I searched the topics, but didn't see anything that referenced this topic.  If it were just a few windows I would do each one manually, but there are quite a few to do.

 

Here is an image of what the client is looking for.

Hi Solver, 

 

Here is a manually created keystone and inserted by dragging into place.   

 

The automatic keystone window treatment would be great if we could edit height, width, depth and inset distance.

Here are some I did a while back- one has a keystone. I made that a millwork symbol and then used it in the treatments tab, millwork applied above casing (some stuff is below too)

Made up window, placed in library and used replace from all the same. I only had a few sizes, only one with the keystone so was very quick. Here's a plan with some of the windows in it, the symbols are placed on the floor. They are pretty quick to make but you can open the symbols to get an idea of stretch and origin offset.

Two images from this plan file and one from the original.

Just remembered that they had a weird wall definition for the facade so the offsets may not be correct. When working it out I just kept adjusting the symbol in the library and dragging it onto a window till it was correct. Then added that to the library.

      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)

      I am setting up a new computer and have downloaded Chief X12. What is the best way to transfer all my data, libraries and templates? Also how to I load all the bonus content, can it be transferred or do I have to download each library again from Chief website? FYI when I installed Chief it didn't create an X12 data folder so I copied it from my old computer. I also have the downloaded libraries in my download folder so I could copy them and open them one at a time I suppose. I just don't want to have a zillion duplicate files and textures like I have had in the past when migrating upgrades. Thanks

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

      Hi folks,
      I want to create a corner window with two different profile windows where height is different on both faces of windows like the one circled RED in this picture.
      I tried but failed to remove the corner post if I change the height of one side like this

      Need your guidance. I am using x10.
      Thanks in advance.
