Thank you very much for your response, very nice that you have just answered, because I have read and reread your post about Complex Windows, I also did the tutorial of the kitchens (maybe I should do it again).
Yes, I would recommend while doing the kitchen tutorial you have it open and try to translate it across to what you are doing, it will take a few times but you will get the hang of it after you throw your monitor out the window the first 3 times (but dont, be kind to the environment).
- In the Generator of the external Frame, the Y Evently has to be adjustable, and Enter Y Evently and Top of and there is a Glass.
If it needs to be adjustable I would recommend creating a generator specifically for this piece (lets call this Generator B
You can then and plug in Null Segments
that use Fixed X/Y size
from your Red Frame as the Padding
for Generator B
to sit within Red Frame.
You can then create your Blue Frames which then use Generator B
as their Top
point + the Fixed X/Y
You can then use the Bottom
piece of Red Frame for where your Blue Frame generator Bottom
point will be ( + the Fixed X/Y
- The sides are composed of 3 parts, the lower part is thinner, the middle one makes the junction with the Y Evently and the top is thicker, as shown in the image I posted.
When building the Blue Frame pieces, build them separately (turn off the generators you are not working on). When its working then try expose other parts of Red Frame (such as its Fixed X/Y size
) so you can wire those parameters in as your offsets to your Padding
or Null Segments
Tip: Try to avoid exposing Transform Translation
to begin with as you can run into troubles later, stick with Padding/Fixed Size
at first for controlling the offsets, then you may find it more useful later on (such as in my Complex Window you can then use that Transform Translation
to actually slide open the window).
Here is a screenshot of how my Centre Mullion works (same as what you are trying to achieve with your Y Evenly):
The null node is offsetting the Red Frame Horizontal Mullion from the Red Frame in your case, which is faking a Y Evenly. Its good to asses whether or not the Y evenly will work for your case in particular, once you take a good long hard look at that diagram you will start to see if it will do what you want. Example: Notice the Y Evenly
intersects on the left side on the Start
piece. You can actually override this behaviour and it might work for you, I found I ran into additional problems which didnt help me with my solution. You will have to experiement and take note of how things relate to each other after you make a fundamental change.
