Shade Materials

Shade Materials Release Notes (PDF)

A bug was fixed in the data so that now, in WINDOW, when a Shade Material that has a # is used to define a Shading Layer, the program will keep the "#" in the Shading Layer definition as well as the Glazing System, which is needed for NFRC certification.

All Shade Material records should be updated. This can be done by either

  • Deleting all the records in the Shade Material Library and import all the records from the CGDB v 19.0 database. This might be the best path for WINDOW 7.7.10
  • Import all the records from the CGDB v 19.0 database, and overwrite the existing records.

Updating a WINDOW Database

 

WINDOW 7.6.04:

In order to update a WINDOW database to import the records that were added for this release, do the following:

  • Open the WINDOW database that you want to update

  • Shade Material Library:

    • Import New Records

      • Click the Import button

      • Browse to the CGDB 12 WINDOW database in C:\Users\Public\LBNL\LBNL Shared​: W76_04-CGDB-12_0.mdb

      • The two new Shade Material records for CGDB 12 for the CHANGSHU HIGH-TECH ENERGY-SAVING DORWIN CO.,LTD white and tan blinds​​ will be displayed. Highlight the records to be imported and click the Select button
        (or click the Select All button, which causes all the records to be highlighted and then click the Select button).

      • The two new records will be imported into the Shade Material library 

  • Shading Layer Library:

    • ​Delete Existing Records

      • Delete the existing Inflector Window Insulators records, IDs 12000 and 12001

    • Import New / Changed Records

      • Click the Import button and make sure the correct database is shown. If not, use the Browse button to locate the correct database

      • The new Shading Layer records for CGDB 12 will be displayed. Highlight the records to be imported and click the Select button
        (or click the Select All button, which causes all the records to be highlighted and then click the Select button).

WINDOW 7.4.14:

The method for updating a WINDOW 7.4.14 database is similar to the above, except that it is not possible to delete the "protected" Inflector Window Insulators records in the Shading Layer Library in this version of WINDOW.

Therefore, the suggestion for adding the Inflector Window Insulators records to WINDOW 7.4.14 databases is to make a copy of this CGDB 12.0 WINDOW database, name it appropriately for what is being modeled, and import records from other WINDOW 7.4.14 databases into this copied database as needed to model products. 

Version 11.0
Released: February 23, 2018

Release Notes:

Here is a link to the Release Notes which contains a list of all the records in the current CGDB, not just the additions for CGDB 11.0

CGDB V 1l.0 Release Notes

Here are links to WINDOW databases (zip files) that have been updated to the latest CGDB (11.0) and IGDB (59.0). You still need to install CGDB 11.0 to get all the up to date XML files installed into the LBNL Shared/XML directory. But you can open these files directly in WINDOW and use them to start new projects, if you don't want to try to update existing WINDOW databases. This is particularly true when running WINDOW 7.4, which does not allow deletion of protected records in the Shading Layer Library. You can instead start new projects with the WINDOW 7.4 database linked below that has the latest CGDB records in the Shade Material and Shading Layer Libraries.

WINDOW 7.4 Database updated to CGDB 11.0 and IGDB 59.0

WINDOW 7.6 Database updated to CGDB 11.0 and IGDB 59.0
