ArchiCAD 17 - New Feature: Anchor Door/Window Reveal to Wall Core

Date: Tuesday, May 28, 2013

Anchor the Door/Window reveal to either the Wall face or the Wall core.

For example, you anchor a window to a composite Wall’s core. If you later make changes in the composite structure (e.g. thicker insulation), the reveal depth is automatically adjusted to maintain the window’s distance relative to the Wall’s core skin.

Benefits

  • Door/Window elements behave in composite walls as required
  • Structural connections between door/window frames and composite wall skins are accurate even in detailed views
  • Connections are intelligent and follow any changes of the composite wall or door/window structure
  • Intuitive user interface leaves you in full control over how doors and windows are inserted
