There's no real question being asked, but I assume it's "I got this error, how do I fix it".

Well, the error says it all. You somehow managed to draw a Window (or Door, or Skylight) called JALI2-LEVEL2 that is bigger than the surface SURFACE 161 (Wall, Roof) it's supposed to be on. Inspect your geometry.

Also, even if you have a fully glazed wall, keep a bit of wall on all sides of the window, maybe 5 cm, to avoid getting into problems.

Sorry, I didn't explain my error fully. But thank you so much for understanding it.

And for the geometry after seeing your answer, I again rechecked it, and yeah I am doing something wrong and it is resolved now.

Thankyou :)

Have a nice day
