Custom Parallelogram Window Shape - How To?

Recommended Posts

Thought it would be easy but am stumped. I want to place it in the wall space above 2 roof planes.

 

Symbol? Then what?

Larry,

 

I would look at the Window dbx.  There are a lot of options such as "Match Roof", etc.  I don't think a custom Window Symbol would work.

Easy peasy.

The difference between the right and left side heights is 37.5" (90 * 5/12).

On the window general panel, you need to set the overall height to 53.5 (37.5 + 16).

On the window shape panel, you need to set the left or right height to 16" and then raise the opposite bottom corner to 37.5".

Larry,

 

FWIW, your client is at some point going to get really mad at you.  Washing that window's going to be a PITB.

Holy cr*p Dermot that worked a treat. Now for the easy peasy part? I dunno but that's way over my pay grade.

 

And Thank You for the quick and accurate response.

I agree Joe, but the builder and I are trying really hard not to be too practical and to get the homeowner what they want - and it's really, really hard.

 

We mention things like cleaning but only onc,e and off handedly, so the thought is out there - then we get them what they want.

My mother used to say "be careful what you ask for because you might just get it".

I think this client needs to listen to my mother!   ;o)

Are you saying this is an example of "window overture", not arkitektur? :D
