Marvin Window Materials

Recommended Posts

Hi,

It's been a long time since I've posted a question.  I just upgraded to Version 8.  I migrated from Ver. 6 and when I loaded ver. 8 my libraries migrated over.  I inserted some Marvin windows, but the materials were all wrong.  I thought it might be a migration issue, so I deleted the library then reinstalled from the Marvin web site.  I'm having the same issue.  See attached screen capture.  The Marvin Siding doors look fine.

 

I tried to search for a thread on this, but couldn't find one.  Anyone else have this problem? 

 

Thank you,

Cait

(I'm operating on Windows 7, if that makes any difference).

What happens to be is even dumber (more dumb).  I download the "library" and get a symbol that tells me to go somewhere else and download.

I went and downloaded from Marvin - and inserted a few windows without the problem you are having. Just FYI so it may be on your system. Unless you want me to check a specific window for you on my system.

Thanks for checking Johnny.  The Marvin download has always been through a link to Marvin's site. 

I have checked multiple types of windows and they are all the same wrong materials.  So, it looks like it somehow got corrupted when I migrated.  I did delete the library (by right mouse clicking on it and deleting). Then I downloaded again.  I'm wondering if there is a registry entry or another file that I need to delete in order to rid my system of this mapping to the wrong materials.

 

Anyone know how I might do this?

Thanks,

Cait

I thought that was funny since link or location should be on the marvin tab in Chief' website.  Having to download and install a library from Chief only to have a symbol tell you to go somewhere else is odd.

Same problem was occurring in the eagle windows catalogue I believe. I believe you can just change material but you should let Chief know.

I have changed the materials - for each window on this project - but that isn't a long term solution - unless there is a way to change all of them at once, forever.

I'll let them know.

Thank you.
