Yup it is there are several ways to do it as well the best way is with a "compound object" done from splines that way you can get anyshape hole you want in your wall (see my attached pics) You could also do a boolean on your box as well. Dan

Hi DAn!Thanks for the reply, but pleas make it slow for me! I'm new to GMAX and all its possibilities.I created a box and a spline circle (as an example). Now what do I have to do to get a hole in the wall? Would be niche if you explained it a bit more detailed.Thanx and bye,Ingo

Don't make a box make a spline shape(rectangle) then un-check "start new shape" then simply create another shape inside say another rectangle and then simply extrude into 3D and voil

Thank you Dan! That was the way to go! I simply created a box and didn't extrude it from a spline. Now I've succeeded and can make a lot of windows!Great help!Bye,Ingo
