With Polyline Solids would be my guess , and later export and re-import to make a Window Symbol if needed.

 

I don't think the Window Tool will make that Shape , if that's what you were wondering.

 

Don't forget to do your Forum signature at some point......

I tried as a challenge and this is as far as I could get so far. Not sure where to go from here though. Need to somehow get it in the wall and put glass and grids in it.

The hole in the wall is doable. Just need the window to fill it.

So can you tell me how to make the hole?

I looked and couldn't find any instruction on that. More importantly if you can tell where to find the instructions I can read it myself.

I don't know of any instructions, but here are the basics.

 

Make a symbol, and set the Inserts Into Wall option. The symbol can be anything and to practice, the overall size is not important. Make the depth the thickness of the wall or more, and make the Insert Depth at least the wall thickness.

 

Place the symbol in the wall and take an elevation view. Move it as required, then click Edit Wall Cutout Polyline in the Edit Toolbar. This will allow reshaping of the hole, independent of the shape or the symbol.

 

You just need to experiment to see how it works.

 

For the heart shape, I used 2 symbols and made the holes overlap to get the 2 humps at the top, as I could not break the top of the box.

It maybe in the Tips Forum, Michael (AlaskanSon) wrote a post or two about making the "Cutout Tool" to make using the Wall Layer Cutouts easier.
