Parametric 2D window symbol

Hi, I'm looking for the simplest way to create a parametric/resizable 2D window symbol. I've attached an image of the symbol—ideally there would be parameters for window height, wall thickness, casing size, etc. Is this possible without spending a ton of time learning GDL scripting?

Without GDL, no.

Fortuantely for you this is pretty basic to implement.

 

all you'll need to know  is  how  the Poly2 function works,  and the transformation  stack (add2, del, rot, etc...)

 

Look in the gdl documentation for :

Poly2

Line2

2D transformations

FILL

LINETYPE

 

All  these a straightforward and easy to understand.
