Hi,

I have this little problem. I need to make a glass cover for the entrance of the building. I decided to try it by using roof > sloped glazing. In fact I made it completely flat. As you can see in the attachment, it does not lie parallel to the project.

But when I try to make curtain grids with the curtain grid tool, it always tries to place grids paralel to the "world", not the object. To overcome this I tried;

1. Placing a workplane on the object, and then rotating it paralel to the object. But curtain grid tool does not care about the WP.

2. Selected the glass roof while there are no grids, i hit the grid alignment on-screen button, rotated the grid alignment, but it did not rotate.

Can you tell me any hi,nts about this simple matter, I just want to place curtain grids parallel to object outline. I use RAC 2013 by the way.

 

Thanks in advance.

You are doing something wrong, select that curtain grid and check the properties, there are 2 rotate parameters to UV grids...

Well actually there are no properties. (see image attached)

Well thanks for that reminder but for that the object has to be on an exact angle, I have to measure it, then enter it in the properties of the object. Then use the curtain grid tool.

Like for this case that angle is 58 degrees.  But I don't know if it is not 58.376 degrees. You know what I mean? I was looking for a direct way to put grid lines manually, parallel to object.

"But when I try to make curtain grids with the curtain grid tool, it always tries to place grids paralel to the "world", not the object. " - Is now PARALEL to the object or not???

"Like for this case that angle is 58 degrees.  But I don't know if it is not 58.376 degrees. You know what I mean?" - No I don't, You don't know what the angle is? or it's 58 deg. or 58.376 deg... if you don't know who else knows? Use the Dim. Angular tool and clarify, then change the "Grid1 and Grid2" with the right angle.

First of all Typhoon you don't have to answer the question. So don't try to be funny like you did there, ok? You can simply say that you don't know any way else to do this.

Well, I guess I have to answer like you did, but no, I can't be less polite, sorry if I sounded unpolite, English is not my native as you can easily figure.

1. Let's say Revit dim shows it as 58 degrees, but if you select the dim, in properties you see that it is 58.3768 degrees right? Well this is why revit shows us that four digits, in fact it may be 58,3767626517625781625 degrees, continuing to infinity.

2. This makes sure that by typing the value by hand, the grid will NEVER BE PARALLEL to the edge. 

3. I think this may cause some annoyances while snapping, drawing, measuring or whatever etc.

4. I'm sure you were trying to be helpful, but your attitude may also cause other readers think there is no problem here, and it is only my fault. But sure there is this "little" problem as I mentioned in the first place.

Is this an existing building?  If not then why are u making an angle that is not accurate, or how do you end up with such an odd angle?  Either way you can set your Unit Formats up so that it runs out to the end of your decimal places.  If your angle is off 0.000000000000000000001 degrees I hardly think that would cause any annoyances.

You are way off base!  Typhoon was not being impolite.  This is your model and you should know what you have.

I want to answer the question, do you think i was funny and impolite? why?

Whatever... I put the dim. ang. with 11 decimal places and the grid lines still "paralel" with the object like you can see, so, are they paralel with the object or not? I know you gonna say: "... in fact it may be 58,3767626517625781625 degrees, continuing to infinity." but do you think is good enought? after all you are creating architectural plans not watches....

Thanks, and yes it is an existing building, and you must know well sometimes people don't draw by entering angles, they draw by connecting 2 existing points whatever the angle is. In short it is not MY angle.

And WWHub that is only your idea. You think I'm out off base, and I think Typhoon was impolite. So?

I tried to (in fact still trying) positively explain the issue, and what I aim, in all detail, yet simplest as possible. So as I understand there is no way to align these parallel. Thanks for all the advices, it is time to call it off, I don't want to be in such conversations.
