Notice how the door falls beneath the gable wall peak:



In this situation the symbol or outline for the opening must be broken into two faces as shown.

There are a lot of little details like this that further complicate things having to do with gable walls, finding them all is a slow and meticulous process.

I'm going to have to dumb down some of the more general features/parameters found with rectangular walls as they apply to gable walls.  For example with rectangular walls you can have walls connected at non-orthogonal corners.  For gable walls this becomes very complicated and eventually I will probably allow it however for now I think it would be best to limit gable walls to ONLY orthogonal connections at the corners.  If I don't do this it will be another 6 months of programming before I ever complete the gable wall module.

As I was testing asymmetric gable walls earlier today it became apparent that the intersection at the peak is a little more interesting with the asymmetric case.  Also I will probably make the double studs positioned at the peak an optional setting in the global settings.

The wireframe preview will look like this:



In this case we have a symmetric gable wall.

When you first click the gable wall tool you will be presented with the following gable wall matrix:



As you can see from the shading all wall types except for the "Gable" type have been grayed out.  Initially I will make only this wall type available, then the "Shed" will be the next type I proceed to develop.  The rectangular, gable and shed walls constitute the vast majority of wall geometries used in most construction however you can see there are quite a few other possibilities, so many in fact, that I quickly ran out of descriptive names to assign them.

Compared with a standard rectangular wall a gable wall with have the following additional parameters:

- Wall Height Left
- Wall Height Right
- Wall Pitch Left
- Wall Pitch Right

These four parameters will drive the location of the wall peak.  In most situations the left and right values will be the same resulting in a symmetric gable wall however any combination of dissimilar pitches and wall heights will be possible which will then yield an asymmetric gable wall.

Version 1.5.1 - 06.18.2020
- Converted the "Draw Door" menu to HTML.
- Fixed a bug with arched door sidelites.



Not a glamorous update, but certainly a critical one.  The three most important draw menus are now switched to full HTML.

Version 1.5.0 - 06.15.2020

I think everyone will find that the HTML menu is a much needed improvement over the previous system.

*** Father's Day Sale***

In appreciation for all of the hard working fathers (and mothers) out there, and especially during these unprecedented times, I will be offering a renewal promotion on all of the plugins for the next three days (June 12, 13 and 14).

The regular license renewal prices are given below:

License Renewals:
Medeek Truss - $60.00 USD
Medeek Wall - $60.00 USD
Medeek Foundation - $40.00 USD
Medeek Electrical - $25.00 USD

The promotional renewal prices are given below:

Medeek Truss - $15.00 USD
Medeek Wall - $15.00 USD
Medeek Foundation - $10.00 USD
Medeek Electrical - $5.00 USD

This is a very steep discount in hopes of getting as many users to upgrade to the latest versions of the plugins as possible. In the last year, the updates to the plugins have been quite significant. I would very much like to see everyone taking advantage of these updates and feature additions that I have worked very hard to create.

These promotional prices will take affect June. 12, 2020 and end June. 14, 2020. All renewals, prior and after this time frame, will be at the regular prices.

Please note that if you have recently purchased a plugin(s), you can still take advantage of this renewal offer. Renewing your license while it is still active adds an additional year to the license expiration date.

Thank-you for your continued support.
