Structural opening head height should be structural opening not window head


Recommended Posts

I've just noticed a problem with the native window tool (which I hadn't noticed until now because I've been using WinDoor).

Currently, even if you have the size reference set to 'structural opening', the head height doesn't refer to the structural opening but the actual window head, so you have to manually take account of this by taking off the shim gap to get the correct height.

The way it should work, if you have the size reference set to structural opening, is that the head height should refer to the structural opening height, not the actual window head.

This is a classic example of the disconnect between NV and architectural knowledge. And it's this type of thing that makes it very hard to promote VW as a professional architectural BIM tool.
