Calculate windows from N S E W

RandyC

Can we use expressions or something similar to calculate glazing areas on seperate elevations views ?
ie: N,S,E,W
to create totals for limiting distance calculations ? Is it possible ?

Hello,

I've allready done that with AC19 by naming all my windows with a ID like this "North-W17-A"
But I've never did it again with AC20, AC21 or 22

I had to say that the way you understand our window direction is not as easy as we can imagine
Example : On a large south-west facing facade it is sometimes better to consider a window as being of the same orientation than the others rather than giving it a full west or south orientation. It is an observation which was made by a thermist and that I am since then. I advise you to consider the estimated orientation of each elevation of the frame and with the help of your thermist then give your windows a property (from AC20) to be able to quantify the glazed surfaces by orientation.
