I have used archicad for several month, right now I'm working on a architecture project which facade is hidden frame curtain wall. I can define the glass panel to a window by archicad curtain wall setting, but the window's frame is a problem. I want to make the window's frame also hide behind the glass panel. The following picture is what I try to achieve but I made them in sketchup. Can anyone tell m how to make the window panel, is that need to use gdi language, many thanks!

You can try to create it yourself, in the Help files see: Virtual Building > Parametric Objects > Graphic Creation of Custom Library Parts and Components > Creating Custom Components for Doors, Windows, Curtain Walls.
