I recently received an e-mail requesting help to make a corner window with butt jointed glass. This has been possible since ArchiCAD 14 but apparently not all users are aware of this.
Go to the Corner-Window tool and open up the “Corner-Window Settings” dialogue. Select “Ribbon Window 16” from the Special Windows 16 Folder. Then from the “Special Windows Settings” tab enable the tick for “Custom Corner Right”, and in the drop down change the option to “Glass”. Then set all the other parameters for the size, frame, materials, sill etc… Click “OK” to close the window.
Now click on the wall close to the corner (but not on the corner), this will generate the corner window to both adjoining walls.
As seen in the 3D Window.
Another example is the requirement for a curved wall with segmented butt jointed glass window.
Please note: one needs to establish the angle between the walls.
Insert this into both “Custom Corner Left” & “Custom Corner Right”.
