MVO Override to make Windows/Doors solid recesses.

It would be great if there were a model view option override to change windows and doors to simple recessed solid opening to aid with 3D printing.

Schematic turns them into a single plane.

Does this help?

Or 'Simplified' will have a simple frame.

No way for you to set your printing software to do like a 20% infill to voids and cantilevers?

You can but that is generally for support whilst printing and is then removed especially for cantilevers. I’d almost like the windows and door openings to be replaced with a deep niche so you just get the simplified opening without having to change the entire model every time I want to print it.

Ah, so you are wanting an indicative opening without there being an actual penetration.

That’s right yes. It would be nice to be able to almost print directly from the model without acing to do lots of preparatory work.
