Window Cross Section Detail

Recommended Posts

This is ICF construction so the wall is 12" thick.  Going with replacement style windows so that they can be inset a bit.  I'm trying to create the detail view for the window buck and casement.  There is one piece showing up that I can't seem to find the setting to modify.  Image attached.  Anyone know what setting it is to modify this element?

The Frame or Jamb I think ...not sure your Ext. casing is set right either it looks like it is an 1" inside the Frame

 

post the plan with the window labelled if you can't get it so someone can look.

That "1/2" is controlled in the window dialog box under "Frame", set that value to zero inches should then do it. Everything in this software is controlled via dialog boxes and default settings.

Thank you for the replies!

 

It seems as though the element in question is being generated via the wall not the window.  After doing some messing around I changed the interior wall surface of the ICF to asphalt roofing (just to get a clear distinction) and the exterior to a red brick.  In a 3d camera view you can see the asphalt and red on both sides of the window.

 

So I guess I'm not sure if that leaves with any option to not generate it?

try the opposite since your window needs a frame not just a sash  ie try setting the frame/jamb to your desired size 6" ? ...ie uncheck "fit to wall" and see if remaining wall edge gets covered.

Two pics attached.  Added a 2" frame that is 6" deep.  Then I tried modifying the wall type and added an 0 thickness 'Insulation Air Gap' over the drywall on the interior.  That seems to have gotten me a bit closer. Any other thoughts?

the program is trying to cover the exposed edge of the wall layer is my guess so it maybe differcult , there must be something there even ITRW , so what do you want there?

 

Post the plan , cos without your exact setup , we are only guessing and can't try stuff.

I'm trying to create the required window bucking and framing details.  No as in depth but something similar to the attached detail view. 

 

I've attached the plan as well.  This is very much a work on progress so please don't judge too harshly :)  It's an addition on to an 1880 Queen Anne style home.  It has some interesting features that have been difficult to duplicate.  At the moment I'm simply trying to finalize the window selections thus the interest in getting the framing details sorted. 

 

Thank you again for all of the assistance!

Using the CAD tools, you may create the detail. You don't need the program to do it automatically.

I think I've sorted out what I was doing wrong.  I'll be back shortly with an update...

Changing the Frame>Rough Opening dimensions in addition to the 0 thickness insulation air gap gets me pretty darn close.  I wasn't fully seeing the how things corresponded because I had my filled polyline boxes in the way!  Image 9 shows what I was hoping to get to as a starting point, looks good!  Image 10 is now that I'm starting to add some of the flashing details.  I'll have to do some blank boxes where the drywall and siding stick up but that should be manageable.

 

On a separate note.  I'm trying to increase the thickness of the polyline I'm using to represent the flashing.  I've moved the 'weight' value all over but don't see any change.  Does that only work when you actually print?
