Any suggestions how to produce the window below? I looked in the catalog downloads but can't see one like it.

Have you tried the Craftsman style?  Or just create your own muntins using polyline solids.

The way I would do that is to just take your picture and make it into a material and apply it to the glass of the window.  If you are able to take a higher resolution picture that is straight on, it could look really good.

If you do not have a window to take a picture of you can build one in Chief if you have the patients. Just construct your double hung or fixed glass window and open an elevation view of it and then apply 1/8" poly line solids in your pattern and change the material to a textured glass from the library ( I used "Corsica" ) then use the "Adjust material Definition"  tool to change the colour and shade the glass. Finish off by drawing a cad line in each joint and convert them to "3D Molding Polyline" (s) and you are done.  It only take a few minutes, just kidding, not the first time.  Good Luck.

How about the glass, any questions?

I did my Muntins wrong please forgive me. Always learning with Chief but I don't think I like those tools that only appear after 5 or 6 criteria are met.  Makes them hard to remember.
