Create our own window easily and nicely

Hello,

 

I model a nice house with Archicad 23 for a client using this version.

I present this project here :

I have made a lot of "personnal windows" and doors by this way  (some with stained glass) :

- model with slabs

- on of these slabs get the Element ID "wallhole"

- I select all of them and save it as a window or a door

 

It is very easy but not as nicely as I want because the frames of these bays become segmented as shown below with this simple example :

Is there a way to hide or smooth these segments ?

I tried changing the "magic wand" settings to change this segmentation when modeling the slab but to no avail.

 

I am looking into GDL ...

Hi Barry,

 

There is GDL reference in my HELP menu but it is a english GDL reference guide like yours.
