Hey everyone,

 

I am currently having MAJOR problems with creating curved angled glass walls. I have to build 15 walls which are angled to the same degree as my columns. I have tried creating masses, which I finally managed to.. only to have Revit tell me that I cannot use the mass to create a glass wall, even though I managed with one already.

I have attached some images of the building, if anyone has any suggestions as to how I can put the walls in they would be greatly appreciated.

 

Thanks,

 

Nick

Did you create the "Mass" then create a "Curtain System" by face?

Hey there,

 That's right, you use a curtain system, instead of trying to apply a curtain -wall- by face.  If you don't want to use massing, you can build a swept blend in the generic model category, and then hide it.   

 

attached is a picture of a curtain system applied to a swept blend face.  You may need to make a new curtain system type, the default is 5x10 panels.

Thanks, 

 I managed to align a level to the top of each of the columns so that I could make masses that go all the way to the underside of the roof. 

Apparently the method I was using before wasn't working... But I can now create the masses and create curtain wall system from face... Thanks!!
