Lining and architrave
You can assign frame to the inside or the outside of the doors or windows, and specify cross section. You have to specify separately the inside and the outside properties of the frame
You can assign full frame or open frame down.
The cross section can be rectangular or profile selected from the library.
You can put covering between the frame and reveal, and you can assign thickness and material to it.
If you don’t assign any material to the frame or covering, then it copies its material from the wall.
Click on the Door / Window Properties - Lining and architrave button¬ to define the frame properties..
Changing the position of the cross section
• After clicking on the door / window on the floor plan the profile of the assigned frame is displayed.
• You can mirror or rotate the profile by clicking on the profile and choosing Mirroring or Rotate keywords in the command line.
• Enter finishes the command.
The advantage of the method is (contrary to changing Insert profile window in the Property window) the result of the changing is viewable on the floor plan as compared to the door or window, so it is evident.
