Hey Guys

 

I am trying to create curtain walls in slanted walls. I started by creating the curtain wall in plan as usual and then using the cut geometry tool to cut the wall, but because the wall are slanted (the wall is not perpendicular to the ground), the cut tool will not let me chose the curtain wall to cut these types of walls. How do I do this? I have created curtain walls without any problem for all my normal walls and cut them, but these types of slanted walls will not work. By the way the slanted walls were created using in-place-mass and wall-by-face tool. Can anyone help here? In the attached picture the slanted walls are circled in blue.

You can only use wall by face here and that would require a mass model with the hole in it.

Thanks for quick reply! I am currently using in place mass. I could do what I can do in mass model with in place mass; am I right? My problem with mass model is how to locate my building at the right location for later insert into the project environment. But even if I use either of the two methods, cut the hole in the wall, after using wall by face how do I get my curtain to fit in the hole? Also to get the right size of curtain wall in there I imagine I will have to know the size in advance and cut the right size of hole in the mass model, correct?

Some of your questions only you can answer. 

 

To place a CW in the hole, you need a seperate mass in that hole.

Just one last question. Since my wall is slanted, how do I ensure the curtain wall will lie in the same orientation as its host?

And pls I have created some model in place sweeps and reveals on a wall. The wall itself is of material masonry brick horizontal. I have made these sweeps and reveals to be of same material, however they are not showing as such in 3d. How do I achieve that?

If you used "wall by face" the wall will be exactly the inclination as the mass that it was created from.

 

If your sweeps don't show the correct material, then you did not assign them the correct material.

I used model in place to create these architectural decorations over my wall. I cannot see any option to use wall by face on these. But there is an option in the properties palette to assign it a material. Likewise one could add it to its family. I have tried those two options but my materials ain't showing.

We can't help you with the limited information you gave.  Images of your material definition and materaial assigment in the in-place family would help.

Actually it is now working. For some reasons I had to close the drawing and reopen it. But now it shows. Thanks for the help. I appreciate you taking time to reply to me. I have also figure out that if the curtain is created using the plane of the mass it will stay in the same orientation. .Best regards.
