Hi all,

Is there any way to model a night shutter in an interior window in E+?

I'm modelling an appartment with a passive wintergarden attached to its facade. The separating window (green in the image) has some thick curtains to reduce the heat loss during winter nights. As I tried to add them as a shading device in E+, it complains that interior windows cannot have shading.

Does someone know a workaround this issue?

Thanks in advance

Rafael

Just in case someone finds a similar issue.

As answered in this other conversation, one possible work around is using EMS Surface Construction State, to change the construction state accordingly.

I can't say how simple it is, but worth exploring.
