Wondering if anyone can help me with massing this object.  I'm trying to curve the right hand side of this object (screenshot attached) downawards...almost as if I had taken a piece of sandpaper and rounded of the edge.  Seems like some sort of void sweep or void swept blend would work, but I haven't been able to get it.

 Thanks for any help.

I can't help you with the curtainwall becuse you didn't give enough information.  Hope you do documents better than you ask qustions.   A suggestion - if you did curtainwall by face, it should be as big as your mass - I would assume you used an automatic curtainwall ... did you set all of the components up correctly as they relate to the curtainwall installation point.  You can controle their depth of placement from this reference point.

 

For your 'V' roof ... two roofs joined or roof by extrusion.

 

As far as your time frame ... plan ahead - learn before you leap.

You have already the "Mass" where you create the curtain wall??? if so, pick in the mass and pick in the options bar "edit", change the mass like you want (create voids IF you need) touching the roof, then finish the mass, pick in the curtain wall and in options bar click in "Remake", done, sorry for the delay, i just see this right now....
