Door and window builder question

Anonymous
Not applicable
I have a project where I have been using double hung windows with door and window builder. The problem I am having is that I have not been able to find a way to have divided lites on the bottom sash. Does anyone have a solution to this? Thanks for any advice.

Mike,

I don't see a solution. Have you tried asking CadImage?

Hi.
You can't really do it using Door and Window Builder, but you can put in glazing bars in which make it look pretty close.
I have attached a module of an example window.

I have asked cadimage but have not received a response. Initial inquiry was probably 4 weeks ago. Thanks for the advice and I will take a look at the Mod file.

Mike,
Click on parameters and scroll down to "glazing bars full window". Click "on".

I've had better luck getting answers from Cadimage by calling N.Z. Josh has been most helpful.

Steve, you're a genius. I tend to overlook the parameters tab, you usually don't need them with all the settings available in the WindowBuilder Settings.

Nice one.

That works for getting glazing bars on both sashes, but i think Mike wanted the bars just on the bottom, which is not possible.
You can fake it though by setting the glazing bars to the 'edge' type, turning off the top, left, and right options, and setting the vertical spacing to the height if the bottom sash. You can check my module file above to see this.

Thanks for the replies. In this case I did want divided lites on both the top and bottom sash so the toggle in the parameters worked great . I forget to even check the parameters since most setting are driven by the "window builder settings.

Toggling "manager" on to store pre defined windows and components also involved a bit of a struggle on my end. I guess I need to pay more attention to what I can control in the standard parameters window. Once again, thanks for the help.

Hi Mike I was just having a quick look @ the Forum.

Glad you got a reply on your problem with using Glazing bars. Im sorry that you didnt't get a faster response from CADimage. But we now have an International dedicated support support email for tools. You can address your questions to 'toolsupport@cadimagetools.com'. This is better than addressing your queries to individuals at the company who may be on holiday or not in the office for a period of time. Someone is always responsible for monitoring the toolsupport emails, and you'll always get a better response from this. We will generally always reply within 24Hrs depending on your time Zone difference to NZ.

Regards

Stuart Morgan
