Do you mean just the glass?

Wolfboy's request gave me another idea.
One of the most time consuming parts of putting in windows is defining the cutout of the wall so that it looks like an opening, not just a window sitting on top of the wall.
So I made 2 complete window sets that can just be placed on top of any wall up to about 4 ft thick and it looks like it was built right into the wall.
You just have to erase the extra width if your wall is thinner.
I tried it on several different walls and they looked good on all of them.

Let me know how they work for you.

     






And this is without the wooden base, so the original wall material shows through.

Excellent Bogie, thanks!

If using settings snap to grid + to vertice, I see the 10' windows stamp straight onto the walls exactly fitting the grid. But the 5' one goes half accross two squares. [You seem to be positioning them by eye in the above examples. I want to be lazy and stamp them... ]

Possible idea to toy with is (for single windows):
make them 400 wide but blank at one side; single windows can be exactly stamped onto the walls facing a square rather than a corner (in the same way as your 400 wide window faces 2 squares) using snap to grid + to vertice.

Here is a single Window modded this way for a 3' thick wall.

The Single window has a 200x200 blank stuck on the side (hard to see unless you drag accross it!)

Q. Do you make these cover or objects(?)

Good point, I didn't consider it cause I never use the Snap to Grid setting.

It works best to put these in the "Doors" group. Then if you need to trim them to fit the wall, select Erase Lines+Doors and then only the window will be affected regardless of what is around it.
