You should be able to get that with the following settings.

'Inset' to move the window in/out in relation to the wall.
'Frame - Depth' to get it as deep as you need.

Play with the 'Frame - Width' setting to change what you wrote as Height in your picture.

To follow your example we need two windows one above the other to have the wooden frame (see the red arrow)?

Je crois que oui, c'est ce qui était décrit dans les posts précédents ;)

Il faut utiliser 2 composants l'un dans l'autre!

I took two arch components, and placed one in the other.

Hello everyone, we're glad to introduce a new 3 Sash FlexSlider.

A Multi Sash FlexSlider is also in development, but till it's ready, if you need a quick 3 sash sliding window/door this component will do the work. It works just like the original 2 sash FlexSlider.

Have you ever wished you could change default thumbnails with your own, see your rendered images instead of V-ray proxies? You can do that in ComponentFinder now!

Assign your own thumbnails with custom images:
Right Click > Set Custom Thumbnail > Choose a JPG or PNG

ComponentFinder - Set Custom Thumbnails.png


The thumbnail image you assign will be automatically copied into the folder where the component is stored, and it will be named with the same name.

View in Windows - Custom thumbnails are saved along side the skp files.png


Would you find custom thumbnails useful?

One more new feature in the latest update is the Recently Used tab.

You can now reach your recently used components in one click!

ComponentFinder - Recently Used Tab.png


If you need to find the original folder where a recent component is stored:

Right Click > ‘Open Containing Folder in a New Tab’

There are 3 things we can watch forever: fire burning, water falling, and speed modeling with FlexTools. :D

Introducing FlexFence!

With this one dynamic component you can create roughly 70% of fences and railings out there, both wooden and metal style.

Flex Fences (and railings) can be easily joined together:




In order to connect two FlexFences to form a corner:

1. Place two fences in a 90 degree angle to each other, having them share the location of one of their posts.

2. Hide one of the edge posts by clicking on it with the interact tool or through the options menu.

3. If needed, you can choose to extend the picket positions of each fence to reach the other's post, rail or picket.

We thought it would be helpful if there was a collection of ready-to-use dynamic fences and railings. So we took some popular fences and railings and recreated them with the FlexFence component!

Each Flex Fence example can be customized further to best suit your design, and then saved for later immediate use.

Download the collection here

What other fences/railings would you like to have dynamic?
Send us pictures or skp models of your go-to fence and railing types! :)

GIGA thanks!!!!

**EDIT**
is there some sort of pre-setting to be choosed before using these DCs?
Or is FlexTools PRO needed?

I only use component finder, and using these fences as "common" DCs doesn't work at all for me..

Hi Filippo,

Yes, all the fences are examples of the customized FlexFence component, so you will need a FlexPack Pro license for them to work dynamically.

“I live in 3D and think in 3D and so I find the most efficient way to get that 3D image out of my head and start working with it is to create it directly in Sketchup." – Derek Sallans, Longhouse Design

Derek’s workflow for concept design is so fast and intuitive, so very SketchUp-like (and FlexTools-like), we couldn’t help but share it with you! :)

How do you show the swinging direction for your doors and windows in elevation?

Pointing to the Right? Or Wrong? ;)




We've always thought of this symbol as a triangular flag with the fixed side where the hinges are and the pointy side where the handle is. However, in some places the flag works the other way around, huh?!

As we are now working on a tag (layer) for 2D markings for FlexTools components, we need your advice!

Which way do you mark your swings?
