Can you import Cabinets, Windows, Doors into Home Designer

Recommended Posts

I have imported a 4 panel sliding window for a kitchen pass-through but it never gave me the option to save it as a window. It will not let me place it into the wall. Does Home Designer have the capability to import as a window, door, or cabinet like Chief Architect does?

Answers often depend on which title (Suite, Pro etc) and version (2018, 2019 etc) you are using.

 

You can help everyone by adding that info to your signature (see below for how to turn them on) by clicking on your user name at the top right of the page, click Account Settings, then Signature on the left.

 

Doing so makes it always available, and keeps others from having to hunt for it.

 

And, turn on signature display too.

Imported from where?

You can't use those as windows, just as a generic symbol.

 

You can possibly create an opening in the wall using a pass-through, then place your window symbol within it.

Thanks! That's a good ideal, I will try that.

 

So it looks like the answer is you can't import a 3d symbol into Home Designer and designate it a window or door like you can in Chief Architect.
