BricsCAD Shape basics: Create custom window

16 Create a custom window

You can create custom windows easily in BricsCAD Shape.

Use the POLYLINE tool to draw the outline of the window on the wall face.
Use the POLYGON tool to draw the outline of the window on the wall face.
Use the RECTANGLE tool to draw the outline of the window on the wall face.

Move the cursor inside the window outline and, when the boundary is highlighted, choose “CREATE WINDOW” from the Quad. The available window styles are shown in a dialog box. Move your cursor over the window design of your choice, and left-click it. The window is automatically created.

You can create a custom window from a wall boundary. Select face of the outer wall and use the “OFFSET” tool from the Quad. Move the cursor to re-size the new boundary, or key in a value and press ENTER. Then, highlight the offset boundary and select “CREATE WINDOW” from the Quad.

Once again, the available window styles are shown in a dialog box.
