How to change the material of windows


So I'm doing this project for school and I haven't worked with Archicad a lot. I'm currently using Archicad 24.

I just can't seem to find the option to change the window materials from wood to steel. I've looked through the whole Window Selection Settings. Am I missing something or is it just not possible?


Kind regards,






Hello demi773,


You are talking about a window information or window appearance ?

About information you are able to enter the material such as warranty or commissioning date etc.
About the appearance just change the surfaces of the occurrence from the settings.
Archicad objects are extremely parametric. It is enough to make the occurrence of appearance and information comparable to your expectation.

Hi Demi 773, you can change material appearance from BASIC WINDOW SETTINGS panel then WINDOW SETTINGS AND OPENING then MODEL ATTRIBUTES then FRAME AND SASH SURFACES, I hope that helps.
