Trimble imported windows not transparent

Postby stInDE » April 9th, 2018, 1:28 am

I'm trying to drop some Velux skylights onto a roof. I can position them just fine, and I can also see the roof tiles through the glass, but that is the extent of the transparency.

Do I need somehow poke a hole in the roof/wall?

Well, the windows you downloaded from Trimble is transparent, (see through glass), but they don't make automatic holes in roofs and walls as the built in lh3d windows do. You have to select the roof side and choose 2d elevation view in the inspector. Then you can make an opening to your size with the opening rectangle or opening poly tool.

Hi, As said previously, your windows are transparent. First of all you need to check which category you have saved the downloaded windows in. I bet it's 'furnishing' - you need to save the item as a 'window'.
This will change the properties of the item. Check what the window is regarded as via 'type and representation' panel at the base of the inspector window.
