Creating Custom Windows

15m 42s

In this course, Josh Bone will demonstrate methods for creating optimized models using ArchiCAD 21.

We will demonstrate methods on how to create granular models that can enable you to extract more views from the model for documentation which will reduce errors and omissions as a byproduct.

When you are done with this course, you'll know how to find ways to leverage the BIM from the early design phases through design into construction.

If I change my ID here to wall hole, all one word wallhole doing it lower case, setting my ID to wallhole and when I click okay I want this to trace the shape of my window, by just space bar clicking it added a new slab there that's based on the thickness of the glass the thickness does not matter, the shape it's just applying what I had set up there in my slab settings so that when I look at this now. In 3D I will see one new slab that's overlaying this using the ID wallhole, this slab that we're using with the ID wallhole is defining the shape that we want this to open in the wall. So you will have to do this for any element that has a custom shape, top, left, right, bottom if there's a curve or a slope or a slant a cant or a bat you'll have to make sure that you use a slab with an ID using wallhole to give it that definition as you create this for a window or for a door.
