Window Flashing Tape
SoftPlan Version:
2018 Plus

Bill, 

I am trying to get a formula for window flashing. We use 4" and 6" Tyvek flashing tape around all 4 sides of the window opening. Depending on if it is a 2x4 or 2x6 wall, it's 4" flashing or 6" flashing. 

 

This is what I am working on, but it isn't reporting. I can do a general formula but it doesn't distinguish between 2x4 or 2x6. 

 

if wall_exterior

   if between (width, 3",5")

      if matches (type, window, door, sliding)

         list ((width*2)+(height*2)/2,4" )

      endif

   endif

endif

 

Any ideas of where I am going wrong? Thanks!

Head scratcher

That one is a head scratcher. I don't know if that can even be done because it would somehow need to be a combination of opening and wall groups. I would recommend sending to Tech support to find out if what you are wanting can even be done. The problem is that you are trying to use the opening variable "width" to represent both the thickness of the wall and the width of the opening.

Head Scratcher, Indeed

I know, that is this issue I am running into with combining wall and opening groups. I sent in a ticket to Tech Support. Thanks!!
