Note:- Any Duplicate files contained in any of my script packs can be used. Just ensure you copy the latest version of any file. These script packs are being built up using some common utility type scripts which are shared across more than one pack.

Description Section

These Scripts will build Dimensionally accurate Windows and the GUI will show the English Equivalent during the setting up of the various options.

Just install scripts in any Maya script path and install Icon and Image files in Maya/Prefs/Icons directory

Usage Section

Type DVY_Windows in command line or middle mouse drag it to a shelf. There is an Icon file supplied to use with the Shelf Button.

This script calls a GUI where relevant info can be entered to generate a dimensionally accurate Window.
The Windows are built with nominal frame sizes as follows.

Frame Width = 50 mm
Frame Height = 50 mm
Frame Depth = 40 mm
Opening Window Frame Width = 30 mm
Opening Window Frame Height = 30 mm
Opening Window Frame Depth = 40 mm.
Cill Depths of 0, 100, 150, 200 mm are available (default is 150 mm).

After entering Overall Window sizes select type of Window Cill required then select type of Window design from the various option menus. As the design is selected the GUI will update the disaply to show a diagram of the style. I have tried to label each style as descriptively as possible

The script will currently build `Standard` style Windows with outward opening Hinges. It will build Windows with fixed panes, Left, Right and Top Hung opening Windows. The Script will add simple White Shader for the Frames and Window Frames and a Glass Shader for the Glass Panes.

The GUI has data field for Overall Window Width and Height and a Radio Button Group to set Cill Depth.

After building the Window the script will lock off unused attributes and leave the Window Group Hinge postion unlocked and keyable.

Note:- The Scale of the Windows will be adjusted to set correct Spring size relevant to the correct size for the Users Maya Unit settings i.e mm, cm, m, in, ft, yd.
