Opening tool in different skins


Is there a way to create ONE opening in a Wall (not composites, but all separate skins) and where the size of the openings in every skin is different (or better parametric)?


Normally i create my own Windows and they are placed in the Outer skin. They don’t break into the other skins because all my skins are created individual (no composite), I’d like to find a simpele way to create ONE opening in the insulation and construction skin that cuts both but has different sizes. Can someone help me? Perhaps someone already has created a tool or object themselve


You can create one or more openings in one or more material using "Opening" tool.

The OP is wanting the size of the opening to stagger between the different walls...
