00| The iOpening Window & Door

May 17th, 2012

Click on the thumbnails to see some screen shots of the the Model View Options

The iOpening window must be the worlds most flexible window. Allowing almost any shape, with just able and sash configuration and position. There is very little that this amazing object can not do.

1. The first image shows a bifold door with a rotated louvre window above, and side lights with opening sashes. Yes this is done with the one part!

2 This clover leaf window displays the ability to curve any section of frame

3. This next image shows another bifold door with an array of different windows above, a sidelight of 3 awning windows, a structural column (yes part of the iOpening window!) And cornering on both sides. All with a curved head to match the roof shape

4. The innovative interface makes this all possible. Note the preview of the iOpening. The user then just clicks on the buttons that represent a sash then modify the sash from the pull out list of types.

5. Here is a seemingly easy to create window, but hard using standard ArchiCAD windows. Done very easily with the iOpening.

Multiwindow 4D

General Notes: The “Multi Window 4D” is the main window part in the 4D Library, and intended to satisfy the window requirements of most ArchiCAD users. This window will snap to standard brick sizes and also arrange its transoms etc as per manufacturers standards. Like all 4D windows and doors, it can export its specific data to the BCA Energy Calculation spreadsheet and appears in a fully dimensioned front elevation in the 4D Window Schedule – also listing hardware, ID etc. Its floor plan text can show brick sizes, metric lengths or a combination of both.

Advanced Functions Exports to BCA Calculator and to advanced 4D window schedule:  Many different plan text options.
