  • Main types:

    • roof molding

    • floor molding

    • opening molding

  • Sub types of the opening molding:

    • Filling trim

    • Window bench

The object type is used to organize the object tree and, for example, in Excel reports. You might need to make specific report for interior moldings or use the standard one.

A new type flashing, for exterior sheet metal moldings

Exterior sheet metal parts used in windows, doors and between claddings are now of the flashing type. They are sub type of the existing opening trim.

The object type is used to organize the object tree and, for example, in Excel reports. So this change might affect the material reports. Exterior trim reports should remain the same. Interior trim parts are now moldings. They might not appear any more in the exterior trim report (the earlier type was the same).
