How to create a Window/Door?

Anonymous
Not applicable
I want to create a Window/Door based on extruded polygons. These extruded polygon represent WindowPosts or WindowSills.
My first problem is how to extrude a polygon along a line so it becomes a Window/Doorpost.
My second problem is that I cannot find the way how to create a 3D Window/Door from the extruded polygons. I cannot get information from API 10 to achieve my goals.

Is there someone who can give me some information on these problems?

Thanks in advance.

To create a window or door, your plug-in must create a GDL object.

Can you clarify for the group why you want to create the window or door using the API and not directly in GDL?

Specific instructions for creating doors and windows are contained in the Archicad Reference Manual at about page 187 depending on your local version.
