Multi sliding window with asymmetric panes


I need to model sliding windows with multiple panes 2 and/or 3 (see screenshots), by default the panes are symmetric, but I need them asymmetric:

The operable pane +/- 1/3 of the opening width and the fixed pane the remaining 2/3 (for the 2 pane window.)

The 2 operable panes left and right +/- 2/7 of the opening width and the fixed pane in the center with the remaining 3/7 (for the 3 pane window.)

That may depend on the language version of Archicad that you are using.

The USA window objects are different to the INT window objects.

This is what I have in the AUS library (I think it is the same as the INT library - not sure though).




Similar can be done for the 3-sash window.




You don't say what language or version of Archicad you are using.



Another option is to create your own window frame (as detailed as you want it) made from slabs and then save as a window object.

It won't be parametric (i.e. will be a fixed size) and you will probably need to edit the 2D symbol.

Or use the Library Part maker add-on as that will assist you in how you want it to look.
