I design for a builder who uses concrete walls (Ritek). The builder wants the plans to show the window size correctly with the cutout 40mm larger all round. I see you can do this with stem walls. Is there a work around for normal walls? Doors are ok, I just make the jamb 40mm wide. This doesn’t seem to work for windows. The wall manufacturer wants to read my cad files, measuring the rough openings. Any suggestions would be great, thanks
Any window opening in a masonry wall usually requires an angle iron lintel. That seems to be a problem for CA. Although there is a lintel option for windows, you have to do the lintel manually or create a profile for it. The lintel doesn't show up correctly in the window schedule if it is an angle, i.e. 3 1/2 x 4 x 1/4 LLV (long leg vertical.)
Does anyone have a workaround?
