Hi guys, I'm studying 3rd semester architecture, and kinda new to Archicad. I'd like to create a cover for the facade somewhat like this:



All I need is just the wood shuttering outside, and it should be folded horizontally like that. I've been googling for 5 hours how I can create its 3D model on Archicad and found absolutely nothing. Could anyone please show me how can I create/ found such system? I'm using Archicad 20 btw.

Thank you in advance Very Happy

Welcome to the forum.
But first please read the section descriptions to find the best place to post.
I have moved this post.

Because the slats are horizontal you could easily do this with a 'Complex Profile' wall.

The opening is a little different depending on what you want to do.
You can add an empty opening in the complex profile wall and then create a second complex profile wall for the open panels.
However this will be fixed at that angle and will not be adjustable unless you further edit that profile.

If you want a parametric (moveable) window then you will need to learn a bit of GDL as I have not seen any default windows or doors like that.

Barry.

Thank you for your suggestion, and I'm sorry for posting in the wrong place! I will do research on GDL then Smile
