Importing SketchUp window model problem

Recommended Posts

When I import a sketchup file I made from the manufacturer of a window it ends up outside the envelope of the wall. Any ideas on how to align this better with the wall?

I think you need to change an option for the symbol to insert into wall

How about just altering a Chief window to match the specs?

Yeah that's what I'm resigned to at this point. Best to use frame dims (from the manufacturer) right? Not rough opening dims?

Frame and sash for what I did, took a couple of minutes. RO  after the fact according to mfg specs, has no effect on the window size, only framing.

Importing windows and creating windows has been a problem in the program a very long time... still wish I could make my custom Marvin Windows work correctly.
