How do I model a 4 pane sliding window with a lower transom

Leire Bilbao

I need to model this sliding window with 2 fixed panes and 2 sliders and a fixed lower transom, as per my picture.

I don't find the appropriate window in the library. Is there one? Can it be done?


Operating system used: Mac Intel-based Sonoma 14

OK, I have created a wish, although I can't find it now. Does it need to be approved?


There are no new wishes and nothing in the quarantine folder.

Generally posts don't need approval unless they have web links in them.

Maybe you accidentally hit cancel instead of post (I do that often!).

sometimes I'll model different pieces of the unit with different windows/doors and only use them as the model and plan symbol, then make an empty opening as the scheduled/tagged element and put all the data in that
it's a stupid clunky work-around that I have to use when I'm working with clients not using cadimage... but it can work

OK, thanks everyone for every contribution.

My conclusion is that it can't be done properly. There is a few workarounds but it's not ideal.

That is why I have created this wish:

Still waiting for them to reintroduce wish voting...
