Create posts between windows

Anonymous
Not applicable
I am creating a long row of windows that needs to have full posts between sets of 3 windows ganged together. How can I show full posts between head and sill only, with trim above, and sill running below?

I am currently faking it in plan by adding a column between head and sill, and adding a morph head and sill trim, but there has to be a better way!

Lots of ways to do that depending on what you are modeling for. 2d graphics, 3d model, Interactive Schedules...
you might one to model a window on the end with as sill that extends under all of the others which would not need to display one? Perhaps you can do everything you want must by extending the sills further on both sides. ? You might be able to turn off all the window trim and model it with a wall you cut some holes in around the windows? Depends if you need the posts to be exposed or if you want them covered with trim or siding ?
Are you sure you want to gang those windows together? They look pretty big for getting them installed without coming apart.

My biggest issue is trying to show a post between the windows. The standard setup if I just separate the windows in plan is that the wall runs through. But I want it to be a post at that point, and want that to show in 3D mostly.

Display of the post can be controlled with layers, layer combo, layer intersect #, SEO, Graphic Overrides....

A post (column), if it has a stronger building material than the wall, will automatically cut the wall away.
