Door/window frame connection with a custom wall profile



Hello Graphisoft Community,


This is my first post here since I'm just starting out using Archicad for educational purposes. So I'm not aware if my post goes outside the community guidelines, for which I'll apologize in advance.

I've hit a snag while using custom profiles, as you can see in the image attached the materials do not 'round the corner' with the door's frame. I'd like the materials to be the same on the outside wall all the way to the edge of the frame, but am not aware which settings I have to manipulate to get the desired results.

Can't find similar topics or I've missed them, in which case I'd really appreciate being pointed in the right direction. It's probably a novice issue, but regardless I cannot find the solution by myself at this moment in time.

Thanks in advance!

Unfortunately this is a limitation of the door and window openings.

The reveals will only show one surface.

If your door/window height is set by the sill, it will use the external surface of the wall at that point.

If your door/window height is set by the head, it will use the external wall surface at that point - in your case the panelling.


There is no way around this without adding thin slabs or morph planes are probably better for the different surfaces.
