Hi, 

Somebody could help me with a inclined window/opening hosted by a inclined wall (created with wall by face using a mass).

What I've done is:

Generic model wall based.

Create one opening on this wall.

Fill this opening with a solid extrusion, in order to have a base where create a curtain system.

 

When I apply this opening into a inclined wall the mass reminds vertical, and it doesn't follow the inclination of the wall.

Some way to go arround?

Somebody with a similar expirience/problem?

 

Thanks a lot.

Carles

Why not do another mass ... in the hole and wall by face (curtain wall) on that mass.

Hi WWHub,

thanks for your reply.

That's more or less what I am trying.

I'm inserting this opening and the mass at the same time (on the same family), but they got the vertical direction, and doesn't follow the wall's inclination.

I could do it on place, but it's to much manual work.

So basically what I need is to make a opening and a mass based on a wall, which stays tangent to it, and not vertical.

Some idea? 

Thanks.

Carles

Why use an opening?  Use a void with the workplane set to the face ... then it will be perpindicular to the wall face.  Same with the mass in the hole.

Thanks again for your reply.

It's is a bit complex. We are using parametric complex masses with a geometry that doesn't allow us to use for each opening one void.

We need to have in one side the geometry, and on the other side the openings. They will be changing during the project and we are trying to keep the geometry independent from them, in order to avoid to update the tangency relations on the geometry (wich are not so stable).

 

We have been trying "face based" masses, but seems we are not able to cut the wall.

We try also using voids in "wall based", but after we cannot pick the edges to generate masses. 

 

Any idea how to parametrize this "generic model wall based" to make it works with inclined walls?

Thanks
