Dynamic Window Component

Dynamic Window Component

Benjamin P.
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. #dynamic #exterior #Loewen #metalclad #SDL #window #wood
