You need to understand that the information you can extract into useful Interactive Schedules from a *Window Object* placed in a Building Information Model which is being used to generate Architectural Plans / Construction Documents… is not going to be the same as what you can extract from a *Window Model* created specifically for the sake of generating Window Fabrication Plans/Shop Drawings that include Interactive Schedules for all of the materials, lengths of various profiles, volumes of Argon, etc…
Perhaps what would be useful for you to know is how to link the Window Objects from an Archicad library to more detailed Window Fabrication Plans with their own Interactive Schedules for every component of a very detailed Window Model?
It all depends on who you are makeing the Plans and Schedules for and what they need to do with them. For a lot of Archicad users, the deliverable/end product they are selling is the .pdf, in which case, the .pdf is a good place to add the links to Manufactures drawings and other data. this can be done very easily using Adobe Acrobat. The Archicad library part/object does not need to contain that informaiton to be useful in the Building Information Model.
Frame width and depth and glass thickness I can ussually grab from the parameters of the window/door object. Outer dimensions too.
If you need to calculate the length of the profiles, you could do it with properties for rough numbers. Grab the width and height of the door/window and multiply by 2 to generate a perimiter value. More complex windows with extra parts won't work this way, of course.
I do wonder if you need so much detail and billable hours spent on it, though. Talking from my own experience, of course.
I never go that far into detail personally. The (sub) contractor receives our window/door schedules and they have sent back their production documentation for approval and without fault even the basic outer dimension are completely off the first time. Any time we put into making these schedules very detailed, truly is time wasted, since we are red lining the final output from the manufacturer a lot. Might be just our part of the global market, but a lot of the manufacturing of windows and doors in Netherlands is outsourced elsewhere in the EU where labor costs are lower and sadly it also shows in the quality of production drawings.
For cost estimates we have m² costs per element so we do not need detail there either.
We model up to, what I call '1:50 scale' accuracy or around LOD300. Beyond that has little meaning in our market.
1:5 details are drafted with product specific information to illustrate the connection to other building parts and how to achieve the proper air tightness etc
