of planar faces.

2) Click the Assembly button and select a construction assembly from the list.

1) Click the Assembly button and select 'Custom Assembly'.

2) Click the 'Layers' button and select the number of material layers deired.

3) Click each layer button ('L1', etc.) and select a material item for that
layer. You must also provide a thickness (in INCHES) for each layer in the
corresponding input parameter ('L1_thickness', etc.) If you wish to set the R-value
of an insulation layer rather than its thickness, use the 'Insulation: Set R-Value'
material.

4) If you want to save your new assembly to the library, provide a unique name to the
'Name' input and click the 'Save' button.
