door side lites

Recommended Posts

Hello, I am trying to add a side lite to a door as shown in the attached image.image.png.8c08dbcb775d4d869f8dfd5f3f46d72f.png

I dont see an option to set the height of the lites. Could some one help me out how to achieve it.

But this is what I get with 2 horizontal litesimage.thumb.png.df937c42ab9f072a1bdf472055a124d0.png

If you want to change the location of the horizontal muntin, you can use Custom Muntins.

 

Or maybe you could stack 2 windows, one above the other?

 

Or use something like a Double Hopper (or Awning) window.

You can only change the component sizes for certain window types.  Changing the window type should enable this control.

 

Custom muntins are not always going to do what you want.  The custom muntins need to cover a certain portion of the window.  So making a cad block with a single muntin probably won't solve the problem.

 

Stacking two side lites should probably work.  Whether these are fixed windows or fixed doors.

Unless that is a window down there and not a panel. Otherwise as others have suggested, you will need to stack 2 window, or use a custom muntin.

      I want a window with lites as shown in the attached photo. I am having trouble figuring out a way to do it. If I load a window from the catalog, it does allow me to select the number of lites vertically and horizontally but they are always evenly spaced. Is there a simple way to do this? Or do I need to select a window with no lites and use CAD objects to create the lites? Thanks

      Trying to figure out way to do custom window grille for a 1/4 round window, as shown in attached files.  Also attached Chief X7 file for reference.
       
      Also having other minor issue with this model with walls poking thru a window, also noted on attached file.
       
      Any help is greatly appreciated.

      I am working on a historic home with leaded glass in all the windows, is there a way to change the material on the lites only?  When I change the grills or lites, the entire window color changes also.
      Thanks,
