Inserting Windows

Available in: Architectural

Inserting Windows with Draft it Architectural is similar to Door insertion. First we are going to insert a standard window in Bedroom 2. This will be positioned centrally on the front wall. Select the window button Window button , this will open the dialog box shown below (make sure you change the width to 1810).

first window settings

Note: All of the windows we will insert match the settings above, the only variation is the width.

You will notice that the Ribbon has changed to display a Command Specific Ribbon for inserting Windows. Check that the Justification is set to 'Centre' and move the cursor over the lower right wall. As  you come into contact with the wall the dynamic dimensions are displayed. Ignore these, hit f7 keyand move the cursor along the front face to the middle of the wall until the 'Mid' snap symbol is displayed (see below). Simply click to confirm this position.

Once this has been done insert the remainder of the windows so that they appear as shown in the picture below, using the information in following table. The 'Justification' refers to the window justification set in the Ribbon not the 'Jamb' 'Justification' in the window dialog box.

The picture below shows the dimensions to place the windows, remember to use the controlling dimension feature as with the doors previously.
