We use labels to show the ID of doors and windows in elevations. The labels are identical to the marker tags used in plan, and the pointer is left off. With the pointer off, it makes no difference whether you use the single-click or three-click geometry method. Doesn't help The label will be placed at a (non-user-modifiable) distance from the
Here's a general solution to dashed lines in 3D. Line types aren't available in 3D GDL. I'm using this for hinge lines on doors and windows.
This is a new approach to showing openings in reflected ceiling plans, using a modified plan symbol rather than an blank opening. I haven't put it in the template yet, and it may not be required or appropriate for every project, but it is better overall. The biggest limitation is that in order to use it you have to use
This is the 9-years-bugging-me thing from a couple days ago. I have used doors and windows of my own making since Archicad 8. When I started, it seemed essential to getting our projects looking the way we want; the Archicad Library items just didn't do the job. I know they have improved over the years, but I don't know how
I added all the plinth shapes I could find to the interior door casings. Not all plinths will fit all jamb casings; you need to know what you're doing.
(A door.) Location: 04 Masonry Make it Flat or not. If it's arched, you can set either the Spring Height or the Arch Height, and the other dimension will change to maintain the overall height. If Flat is on, the arch/lintel can be Segmented (separate arch stones) or Solid (a one-piece lintel). With Flat off, the curved arch must

The new one is better. (A door.) Location: 04 Masonry Make it Flat or not. If it's arched, you can set either the Spring Height or the Arch Height, and the other dimension will change to maintain the overall height. You can show Joint Lines representing the stones, and set a Stone Max Width. The lines use the Joint Pen.
Two parameters added to the 'Plan' options in the Interior JAM9 door, so you can turn off either side of a cased opening. The parameters are 'Cased Op Line (Swing)' and 'Cased Op Line (Opp)'. Both are on by default. (Note: You will only see them in the parameter list, not the interface pages.) This feature address this condition, where
This is a placeholder, I'll flesh it out eventually. Exterior JAM9 is the new all-(most-?)purpose exterior door. It makes obsolete a large number of JAM8 doors, I don't know how many. Most of the 'basic' parameters (single/double, transom, leaf style, etc) which used to have separate door objects, are rolled into this one. Briefly, more later: • Single or double
Location: Doesn't matter; window & door markers are selected from the flyout in the info box or the 'dimension marker' tab of the settings dialog. WindowTag: When the ID doesn't fit in the regular hexagon, the shape elongates to accommodate it. DoorTag: I fixed that upside-down text thing, I'm pretty sure. I took out the Flip Text parameter. If it
For labeling doors and windows in section/elevation. This is completely different from the dimension marker used in plan. It is intended to be used as an associated label. How about a quick review of associated labels. To place an associated label, select the element, in the window you want the label, and Check 'label Elements' in the Info Box. Which
The question is, when you change the height of a door or window, does the head or the sill move. In real life, we want the head of the door to change, but the sill of the window. In olden days the sill would control no matter what. In AC8, they offered a preference, but it applied to both openings,
All the pocket doors now have a line representing the extent of the void in the wall. Now you know if the door really fits.
Location: 08b Doors A screen door. Optional screen transom.
Now that you've fully realized the potential of the current windows and doors, please let me know what you'd like them to do. This isn't something that will happen overnight; I'm thinking a 6-12 month timeframe, very likely coinciding with Archicad 9. I am only doing the groundwork for the next version, but now is the time to build in
It's about time. I was getting ready to ask what features people want in the next version of the doors and windows (Thinking very far ahead), when I realized there isn't a comprehensive list of the current features, which are extensive. So here.
Location: 2 Project LIB : Stevens. An arched cased opening. If the wall is thick enough, you can opt for panels on the jambs. I have also added this functionality to the regular Cased Opening JAM8.
I have updated the version 8 doors and windows with an option to build a masonry jamb.
