Any way to angle one side of a window jamb to follow the roof line?

HI @architect 

 

 

There are some Special Windows available in Archicad Library but no one has that angled side as you need. Anyway, you could check this oldy article to create a custom window/door with any form you want:

@architect Why don't you do a curtain wall piece? That has a high level of customization as opposed to a non-parametric custom object...

Sorry to somewhat contradict you @Ricardo Lopez . I just wanted to offer another solution.

Unless really versed in GDL, it is hard to master changing any parameters of a custom object (materials, surfaces, contours...). That is a limitation I will probably always have personally...

Do note, a Curtain Wall will be seperate from your wall and you will still need to cut out a hole in your wall.

I haven't check it in a while, but there use to be an add-on named ArchiGlazing that could help too.

I don't know if it is still available. 🤔
