Don't Know Technical Term but need to draw this window

Recommended Posts

Trying to draw an as built. The roof is 7.5/ 12. I can not seem to create that window in the peak of the gable. "Dogear Arch" only gives me 45°. "Match Roof" only angles 1 side of window. What am I missing? The window is roughly 30" High and 8' long. Don't need to be exact as I am not doing anything with this area of the house but would like it to look right.

Thanks! I called myself using trying that but didn't think to combine the "sides" and "top inside corner" adjustments.

That did the trick!

You can also set window to fixed glass and use dogear option under arch.

I tried that but you have no control of the angle on sides, unless I'm missing something.

You should be able to get it by setting the width and height (if you know them or can fudge them). Some trial and error until you get it to match.

On "dogear arch" the angle appears to be set at 45°. So no matter what I adjusted, it would change the length of sides etc but never the angle.

I think you are right; my bad. Would work if you could also set the top width and/or the pitch to match roof with the dogear option.

be a really cool option

 

 

We can do the same basic thing simply using the shape tab settings. You can get almost any possible roof shape you want across the top of the window using those settings...
