Hi I'm struggling to design this simple but atypical window. do you have some recommendation how to reach this shape ?
Go to Solution.
You can try to create the window as a rectangular one (without the diagonal side) and then Convert selection to Morph(s). Once you have done that, modify as desired, select it all and go to File Menu> Libraries and Objects> Save Selection as...> Window... as described on this article: https://community.graphisoft.com/t5/Design-articles/How-to-create-Custom-Window/ta-p/303432

I found this video and it's like you said - easy way how to do itVideo : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HtikuYmt2cU
The trick to get the hole to match the frame is to add a slab that is the overall shape of the window and give it an ID of WALLHOLE.
Then when you save it all as a window object, it will automatically create the correct shaped wall hole from that slab.
Thanks, now I understand
In addition to Ricardo's suggests - which is great for a one-off - you can use the Libary Part Maker (LPM) add-on to create a custom window with that shape that is parametric.
This is the link to the US version of LPM...site search seems to be based on my data, so you'd have to modify for your country-specific (SWE) version:https://graphisoft.com/us/downloads/addons/LPM/
And, this topic might be helpful if the created window does not load:

Thanks but for now I gave up this solution ... problems with libraries for (sweden version) and it's quite hard to get it how to do properly
Hello @Vojtech Slavik,
I would like to suggest this Add-On for the development of atypical windows:

Also you can try searching in BIMComponents for "polygonal window" in the window settings search option.
I have not used this object but it may do what you want.
I can't see results like yours ? Is't version of Archicad ?
I think you might be searching in the object tool.
You need to be in the window tool.
Jop You are right I din't get it that I have to be on windows settings.
But unfortunately there is non description how to reach this tape of window 😕
The first one with no image seems to be in English (2 & 3 are German I believe).
The 4th one, I got an error message when trying to download.
Just select and then press Download button.
It will be added to your Embedded Library.
As I said, I have not used this object but is is all stretchy in elevation and even a preview in plan by the looks.
There seem to be some description in the plan preview for what to do.
There will be a video by the creator @Hmooslechner somewhere in a post here.
I think this is the post with a link to a YouTube video.
Thanks a lot Barry. Just curios... are you answering this at 2:36 AM in your time zone ? 😅
No it was 5.36pm here.
In your profile settings there is an option to set the time zone.
My Settings > Preferences > General.
The very simplest answer I know is to use the CI Tools library, which allows exactly that window shape out of the box.
