Frame Position

The parameter Frame Position sets the offset between the exterior wall face and the exterior main frame face.

The min. value = 0 (zero), which means that the frame can be flash with the exterior wall face.

Frame Position min value

The max. value < wall thickness - frame depth, which means that the frame can not be flash with the interior wall face.

Frame Dimensions

The parameter Frame Dimensions determines the outer size of the main frame.

When this parameter is enabled, the Width and Height parameters apply directly to the outer size of the frame.

When this parameter is disabled, the Width and Height parameters apply to the wall opening and the outer frame width = Width - (Rough Distance Sides x 2) and the outer frame height = Height - Rough Distance Top - Rough Distance Bottom.

Our families are used all over the world, which makes naming parameters really tricky.

Terms aren't always the same, and if they are, they might have a different meaning between what we and you refer them to.

Please get in touch with us , if you come across one of those cases, if the documentation isn't clear enough, is missing some scenarios, or if you just want to have a chat.
