Octagonal or Round Windows

Recommended Posts

Is there a way to have octagonal or round windows in Home Designer Suite 2015?

If not, can importing an octagonal window from 3dwarehouse somehow be made to work?

Thanks!

From the library catalog click  Architectural>Windows

 

Thanks! But now that you pointed me to the right place, I'm having the following problem: I put in an octagonal window, which defaults to 36" x 36". But as soon as I change anything about its properties (dimensions, casing size, etc.), the window turns into a square! Any ideas? 

I was able to do a round window (see picture), but not an octagonal one.

For some reason Suite won't allow you to resize some doors and windows.

 

The Octagonal window comes in 2 sizes 24" and 36", as have you seen, it won't allow you to resize it.

 

The workaround is to use the pass thru tool and then add 2 wedges and 2 inverted wedges, resize to your liking.

I like your idea ... but I'm not finding in 3dwarehouse a wedge that would give me the 3 sides of the octagon. Can you direct me to such a shape? Thanks!

Always search the library. I believe even Suite has a few shapes.
