Box Window Problem CA Premier X7

Recommended Posts

Attached is the plan for a remodel/alteration to a villa which I have done.

I have had trouble getting the bay window W3, circled in red to look right.

The bay window is made up of individual windows, all are a copy of one so the properties are the same except for the opening sashes

In plan view it looks OK

In 3D/overview the interior sill and apron is missing on window A and the exterior sills are missing on windows B and C.

When window B units are blocked/mulled together it extends one end and is not right in plan view

In 3D/overview the interior sill and apron is missing on windows A and B and the exterior sills are on all windows.

How do you get the box window unit to look correct in plan and 3D view

 

Any help would be appreciated

I downloaded your file. When I looked over the box window I could see nothing obviously  "wrong" inside or out. Please more succinctly define "look correct" or what is wrong or missing please.

If you block the three windows you will get your exterior sill but that does not fix the interior. NOt sure what is up with that.

the exterior window sill is missing David on B, I did not look inside , but found the same thing as Dennis , unfortunately it seems you can't block/mull all 5 windows..

Thanks for your replies.

 

All windows A,B and C have the same properties and are setup to have exterior sills and interior sills and aprons

In the plan that I posted the window units are not blocked and in plan view all the windows looks OK.

When window B is "Not Blocked" in 3D view the exterior sills on window B and C are not showing/missing and the interior sill and apron on window A is missing 

 

When the three units in window B are "Blocked", in plan view window B extends beyond window A and does not look right in plan view.

When the three units in window B are "Blocked", in 3D view the exterior sills appear on all windows as they should, but on window Aand B the interior sill and apron are missing

 

Hope this clarifies the problem. I have spent hours trying to get it right but with no joy.

I would have thought that as all the windows are the same windows A,B and C should be able to be blocked together.

I looked at the plan and am having the same mulling issues.   According to the Reference Manual Mulled windows must be in the same wall.Moving forward, I would remove the auto generated sill and add a molding polyline.
