How do I import a round window from a manufacturer and place it into my 3d model?

It'll need to be in a compatible format that DataCAD can import (DWG, DXF, 3DS, STL, SKP etc.). Once imported you can then insert it in wall. If using the older slab wall entity you can trace around the window using the same z-b/z-h settings as the wall it's being inserted into with a new slab entity. then create a void to remove the opening leaving the 3D circular window in place. If using smart walls, do the above and resize the slab wall to sit close to the circular window extents then save it as a symbol, then create a new smart window and use the symbol as the window, then when you insert the smart window into a smart wall it references the symbol created.
