Sash openings
Help needed to figure out how to show window openings on the 2d window, something like this :-

After reading OKH's very thorough explanation i am none the wiser, does anyone know of an idiots guide or video.
I have created a range of 5 double glazed windows and 10 doors, interior, exterior and patio which i would like to share but would prefer to do so with the sash openings showing.

Re: Sash openings
Good luck. Sash windows would be a welcome addition and useful in many regions where they are common. Looking forward to seeing the result.


PS: When I get the time, I really want to update a guide with separate sections on SVG cutouts, light-sources, hinges, softening/shrinking models, planIcons glass properties, and so on. But as SH3D has evolved with lots of extra possibilities, there are quite a few features worthy of attention. ok

Re: Sash openings
HI ok good to see you back, hope all is well.
So far....
managed to create a library file and set it so sh3d can use it, well pleased at accomplishing that alone, but when trying to figure out sash x and y i realised that all my windows and doors swing to the left not the right, if you'll pardon the pun.
I went to my library entries to mirror them and found that they are no longer modifiable, not italics either, do i need to re-import them mirrored, or create another sh3f, also, double openings, left and right....jeez.
As for actual sash windows mate, i have not made one but as you mention it i will.
The windows and doors are probably too complicated to be modified to "open", too many parts, especially the double glazed units.

Re: Sash openings
Any chance someone could post examples (extracts) of the properties for a double opening window.

Re: Sash openings
Right, forget all that, i give up, 8 hrs of my life wasted and i will have to recreate the sh3d file yet again as it has disappeared yet again, with no exaggeration this is about the millionth time. sad .
As for creating a Sash window.....

It is double glazed and no light weight at 1152

Re: Sash openings
Sorry Mike for not answering earlier.
If you have two sashes, you have to cite a pair of values in doorOrWindowSash... properties like in this example posted by okh or some double windows available in the default library.

doorOrWindowSashXAxis#15=2 130
doorOrWindowSashYAxis#15=25 25
doorOrWindowSashWidth#15=63.5 63.5
doorOrWindowSashStartAngle#15=0 180
doorOrWindowSashEndAngle#15=-90 270

Re: Sash openings
No worries mate, i had a feeling this would be beyond my pea brain.
sh3f is again sorted, if i send it to you could you please put the license details in or is that not where it goes

Re: Sash openings
First - windows look great!

As for "..8 hrs of my life wasted..." I am no so sure. If I were to count that way, I would have given up on SH3D long ago. Sometimes, you can spend hours trying to figure out little details without getting it right. I have countless examples. Not only SH3D by the way, it could be building a bunk / cupboard bed (in real life) as I am doing this week-end, or my own metier for that matter... But trying and failing - even when overwhelmed by the latter - is never a waste of time.

And again - the windows look absolutely perfekt!
