This is a dynamic window component modelled after Loewen metal-clad wood windows, with the geometry simplified somewhat for cleaner exports to 2D formats. It has a 4-9/16" full jamb with an optional jamb extension of any depth, and preset colour options from Loewen's standard palette.
User inputs include:
-width (no preset options)
-height (no preset options)
-wall thickness (no preset options)*
-glazing (double or triple)
-window configuration (single or double-wide)
-SDL style (craftsman, colonial, or none)**
-grille width (5/8" through 1-1/4" in 1/8" increments)
-SDL configuration (# of lites wide by # of lites tall)
-craftsman SDL position, or 'TOC'***
-jamb extension (yes or no)
-jamb extension thickness (no preset options)
-preset colour options (can be overridden with the paint tool in Sketchup)
I have not added interior or exterior casings, and the wood colour of the jamb extensions & the inside surfaces of the window need to be changed manually within the appropriate nested component contexts using Sketchup's paint tool.
*Specifying the wall thickness defines the width of the jamb extensions & can be ignored if they are hidden.
**SDL stands for 'Simulated Divided Lights'. True SDLs have an inner & outer grille applied to both faces of the glazing, with shadow bars between the panes to give the illusion of depth to the mullions. For the sake of simplicity, I have applied grilles only to the outer face of the window.
***The TOC is the vertical location of the lowest horizontal mullion in a Craftsman-style SDL, measured from the outside top of the whole window unit to the center of the bottom mullion.
