Jim S. Posted December 5, 2019 Share Posted December 5, 2019 (edited) I am currently working on a project that is a series of old masonry buildings with arched masonry openings but square windows, a fairly common condition. In VW language the masonry opening is a "segment" top shape. The space between the square top of the window and the masonry "segment" lintel is filled by a panel. The window sash does not follow the curve of the masonry opening. My question is how can you model this? If I chose a segment top shape for the window the sash becomes arched as well as the opening. Do I really have to model the masonry opening as segmented, then the window in that opening with a square top shape, then an extrusion between the top sash and the curved lintel? I have about 300 windows with many, many different sizes with this condition. With the above approach I could make a series of symbols and groups but my head begins to spin thinking about how many I would need plus all the graphic overrides and more symbols to show the demo work on the Exterior Elevations. I am sure I am not the only one that has come across this condition with older buildings. What are some ways others have tackled this issue? Edited December 6, 2019 by Jim S. Quote Link to comment
