Triangular Louvers-Gable end louver

Does anyone know where I can find a triangular louver in the 8.0 Library? The library has all of these other great shapes...but not triangular. Is there a work around?

TIA

Try using the "W Triangle Fix 81" in the "Special Windows 81" folder. Then assign a material to the glass pane that would mimic the louver slats.

If you wanted a challenge, you could make a down and dirty custom window object using Slabs/Walls/Columns and "Save-As" a window object.

...and roofs, assuming the louvers are angled.

The window routine worked just fine for the moment...I will try drawing one from scratch soon and make it parametric.

Thanks for the quick response

Use the Half round, with resolution at 4. It is triangular.
