Hi Everyone,

I have been trying to figure out how to fix the complex curved curtain wall I made. This is originally a mass I created, which I then loaded into my project, made walls, and when I try to make a curtain wall, it's really distorted. I am assuming because it curves really werid, it can't make it properly.

 

I tried dividing the surface in the original mass file, and then applying a pattern (rectangle) and then it just overlaps really weird :S It doesn't actually make a pattern.

 

Is there any way to make this actually work?? 

 

Thanks in advance.

Wish I could help with the modelling but that looks like a nightmare. Which leads me to ask - if it cant be modelled easily, how do you think they will ever be able to build it in reality?

I don't see how you can get linear & flat elements to work on a warped plane.  Flat planes can approximate the surface but your vettical and horizontal elements can't twist.

You can create that with the "Conceptual Mass" and with a "Curtain Panel Pattern Based" family.

@ aspect - I am in design school, you imagine the impossible, even if it cannot be built Smile 

 

Thanks for your help! I simplified and essentially figured out the pattern based family.
