Windows, another way of displaying

Recommended Posts

I am trying another way of modeling windows that is pretty effective at accurately showing extension jambs and giving

much more control with how the sill behaves.

If you do the window unit separately from the interior casing, sill, apron and extension jambs it really works well and allows you more

freedom with adjusting where the sill ends up. I make them each up separately and fine tune the adjustments, then just put one on top of the other.

The attached plan shows how. The two separate units are on one wall and the combined units on another.

Check out the settings on each one to see how I did it.

This might not be for everybody but I thought I would share.

I do the same thing for exterior doors that are mulled with windows. This method works well and I think the only real drawback would be for users who are listing all the trim components in a schedule or using 3d views in the schedule that include the casing. I keep the 'doorway' (which is only there for trim purposes) out of my schedules.
