Export Skylights

Exports the selected skylight areas to the current cove.tool project. All skylights should be exported at the same time for accurate results.

Export Walls

Exports the selected wall areas to the current cove.tool project. All walls facing a given direction should be exported at the same time for accurate results.

Export Windows
