WINDOW/ DOOR GLAZING AREA and OPERABLE AREA

Hello guys,

 

I am working on a single family residential project and was wondering if there is a way I can calculate the glazing area and the operable area (the part of the window that opens) in ARCHICAD. It would be a helpful tool as i would be able to check if my fenestrations are compliant with the  light/ventilation requirements. 

 

I am aware of the current listing parameters in the schedule's scheme settings like reveal side opening area for door/ windows, but they are not useful at all as it gives me the area of the wall opening. Given how much work the creators of ARCHICAD has put in, I was thinking there is definitely something that does the job. Please find the attach photos of a window in my schedule and the currently available scheme settings.

 

I hope someone has an answer to my question, and if not then probably this post catches the eyes of developers at GRAPHISOFT and they can add a tool in future updates 🙂
