Window Orientation on Window Schedule?

Recommended Posts

I'm making my first foray into Vectorworks worksheets and custom formulas. I would like my window schedule to tell me the orientation of each window (North, South, East, West) so that I can calculate the total area of glazing on each facade. Any suggestions as to how I can make this work?

Try creating a New Record and attaching it to the Windows.

Then you can assign one of the 4 fields (North, South, East, West) to each instance.

The worksheet would reference the Record and list the Field.

There's also a field called Location in the Data pane of the Window Settings dialog box - this can then be used in a column in your window schedule.

=('Window'.'Location')
