Improve ArchiGlazing

Anonymous

IMHO ArchiGlazing is far from finished. It would be great it would be made possible to draft a windowshape in 2D on the floorplan using different pennumbers or linetypes like in Trussmaker. If a multipanel shaped window is drafted, one should be able to assing a paneltype to every part of the window. Wether it is a solid panel, a moving windowframe or solid glass etc.
Furthermore it is desireable to be able to choose a certain silltype.
All these parts could of course be localized if required. ArchiGlazing is too basic at the moment to really be productive. In regard of this, it would be logical that, when a non-square window is constructed on the floorplan using slabs, the outer shape of the window is used to generate the wallhole instead of having to add slabs to "fill the holes" in order to make a rectangular shape.

.....and integrate it into the main proramme, why should we have to pay for these "extras" when the software costs £3000.

I've always been a little fuzzy on this.... what does Archiglazing do that you cannot accomplish just making your own window object out of slabs?

I think mainly it facilitates the creation of complex geometries (see attached), and would be handy for any firm (like ours) that utilizes a lot of storefront and curtain wall in their designs (superior to the standard AC library objects, anyway). Really need the ability to designate different panel types, tho (as Laurens suggests).

A smart way to integrate frames and mullions with custom profiles would be welcome too, I'm quite sure - not to mention some way to govern stretchy behavior

Shall we make a separate poll for the integration of ArchiGlazing into AC?

Still looking?
