Basic notions

In Opera, a typology (or window type) indicates a finished and ready to use window or door frame made up of one or more elements called structures, made up of profiles and accessories

Single structure typology
Multiple structure typology
  • A single structure typology will be, for example, a window
  • A typology made up of two structures will be, for example, a window with an overhead window

It is clear that the most important element of the typology is the structure: to create a typology, in fact, the single structures must be realised first, or the ones that have already been prepared may be used and linked to each other.


How Opera calculates the typology cutting lists

Based on the total width and height of the typology, the profile cut lists are calculated taking into consideration the following factors:

  • technical data (or dimensions data) specified in the profiles archive (encumbrance, overlaps, clearances... see the [[Profiles] for more info).
  • possible cut formulas relative to the typology profiles. If the typology has cut formulas, the technical data of the profiles will not be taken into consideration and the cut list calculation will be based on the formulas.
  • the internal or external cut type set out on the selected saw (see the Cutting parameters for more info).


Content description

  • File:tastostampa2.png: allows you to print the type schedules for the types included in the file, or to print the codes, with a description of the type.


  • File:tastoinviocommessa.png: this button is used to send a typology to Opera Company technical dept. The user can choose the recipient address from a list and add a note, if required. Once confirmed, the program will create a new draft e-mail with the typology file in attachment.
  • Name: the typology code.
  • Custom (Customization): an additional code used to customise the real code of the typology
Note NOTE:
The customise code is used in case of two typologies having identical codes but with slight differences, such as in the materials. In this case an additional code may be added in order to highlight the differences between the two typologies.

Note N.B: In order for the function to work properly is essential to write the opening side in the description eg.: Opening to the left / Opening to the rigth. This allows to change the opening side automatically in the description when in the image:tastomanovra.png is pressed within Worksheet.


  • Code opening characterFile:tastomenutendina.png: same as above, but this works on the Name field, pointing the opening side. It is up to the user to write in this field the position of the character within the typology name that indicates the opening side.
Note N.B: In order for the function to work properly is essential to write the opening side as a single character (L or R) in the Name field. This allows to change the opening side automatically in the description when in the image:tastomanovra.png is pressed within Worksheet.
