Window on curved wall

Polar Bear

Hello,

 

I placed this window on a curved wall but would need the frame to be perpendicular to the wall surface, like the hole on the same wall.   I wish the same for doors and windows.

 

Is it possible?

 

Thanks

Kr

Surely the frame needs to be perpendicular to the glass/door leaf as you have it now.

Otherwise you will need curved glass/door leafs.

What I think you mean is the side of the frame needs to be built out to allow for the wall hole to be perpendicular to the wall.

I don't think this is something that can be done with the windows though.

You would have to add a curved empty opening and model some packers to the side of the frame.

Thanks for the reply.

 

This is for a project in India, everything can be made with carpentry.  The bottom/ top part would be straight and the side jam cut angle to match that site masonry constraint.  It is easier and cleaner to adjust wood than stabilised earth blocks... I have been using empty opening etc. as you suggested, but it is so cumbersome, not easy to adjust, lining up etc...  I ultimately end making quick sketch and discuss with masons and carpenter.  But was wishing to have the model accurate.

 

Thanks!

Hi Have you tried the curved window in the special windows section of the library, I have attached a screen shot for an example, I hope it helps!
