    Hello forum.

    Relative newbie to using this software, still getting my head around some of the finer details of it. I am having some issues with creating a bay window. Attached is an example of the wall section I am trying to insert the window into.

    I cant seem to find any combination of measurements that will make the window work. I insert a window to fit on the long wall section, then edit within properties to the bay window option. However when ever I change the window, it disappears as it obviously doesn’t work for some reason.

    Any help or guidance on how I can make a bay window work here? Angle is 45 degrees. Units are mm, and I am using the Australian catalogue as an FYI.

    Thanks in advanced.

    Hello Phil,

    First of all welcome to the community, It’s great to have you on board 🙂

    Not quite sure if this is what you’re trying to do but let me know if it isn’t and maybe i can help you further if not someone else can.

    There are 3 pics one to tell you how to do and two with how it looks.

    Edit: Metric size attached

    And sorry for the duplicate not sure how that happened

    If you are creating a bay window using walls…just insert regular windows into each bay wall segment at a size that will fit each wall segment’s length, centered.

    If, when you “then edit within properties to the bay window option” and are using the ‘replace’ option to do so…if the bay window assembly you select to use as replacement is wider that the wall segment you’re inserting it into will simply disappear as you’re describing since it cannot fit within the wall segment.

    If you are trying to insert a pre-made bay window into a short segment of wall, bay or otherwise…you need to first create a new bay window assembly of a size that will fit in your length of wall as Conrad has outlined.

    Thank you both for your replies! I actually not long after I posted this figured out what I was doing wrong. But I definitely appreciate your help!

    Cheers.
    Phil.
