Description

In this dialog window you can define a new glass unit object with a given U-value or you can edit an existing one.

The preview is only schematic so you can easily recognize the layers and select them directly in the preview. The layers will either be displayed horizontally or vertically and their length will be ignored.

In the orientation control group you can define the orientation of the layers by clicking on the circle representation or by numerically editing the corresponding field. By clicking inside one of the small squares in the circle representation the corresponding multiple of 15° will be set.

In the characteristics group the type of glass unit can be chosen and the physical characteristics can be determined.

In the table you can choose the material property of the glass from the list of materials existing in the document or create a new glass material in the opening Material dialog window and you can adapt the layer thickness. You can also adjust the name and the color of the gas.

The thickness as well the material properties of the glass units can also be changed in the usual way (Select, Move, Scale tool, Drag&Drop).
