SKU 7 Pro

Creating a window component; lets say the simplest cube possible with
all dimensions of 7", two facing sides have transparent(glass)
material.  Make component, select "cut opening"  Wa-la, a window.

When I insert into a wall(plane) of zero thickness, transparency is
maintained.  when inserted into a wall with thickness (as one would
draw a building in two planes of zero thickness ...say 5 1/2
inches apart), transparency is not maintained....The component seems
to cut thru only one of the wall planes.  So you can see thru the
window into (or out of ) the building
