Ability to define sides, top & bottom Window shim gaps independently


Christiaan

Question

We need to be able to define the sides, top & bottom shim gaps independently of one another.

 

These shim gaps are often different. We need to be able to model these correctly so that things like our window schedules are correct and so that our elevations correctly show the relationships when we're dimensioning to things.

 

The bottom shim gap can be effected by the depth of wall and the need to allow for the fall of a sill. The top gap can be effected by different lintel arrangements. I've not had an example where each side is different (although this can often happen with internal doors), but I can imagine examples where being able to define each side independently would also be required.

 

Same issue with the door tool:
