Hi,

 

I'm tyring to edit the profile of a crutain wall so that it aligns with an adjacent wall.  The only problem, is that the curtainwall keeps embedding itself in the wall instead of aligning with it.

 

I've attached a screen shot.

 

Any ideas on what this might be?

 

Thanks

Your images don't tell us much.  You should be working in a plan view and disjoin the wall to move it.

I tried editing the wall in plan view as well but couldn't get it to align properly.

 

I attached 3D views because I thought they would show the overall context better.

 

Here is the plan view though.  You can see where the mullion that is embedded in the wall is highlighted blue. I can't seem to disjoin the mullion or move it.

Here is another 3d View, almost an elevation, that shows the overall profile of the curtain wall I'm trying to edit.

 

I wasn't sure if the abnormal shape of the overall wall might have some impact on this problem.

I obviously misread your initial post thinking you were moving the wall.

First - when you edit profile, only work in elevation views.

This is a very complex shape for a CW profile edit.  I probably would have broken this up into multiple sections. 

Did you turn off wall joins for this CW?

Yes,  I disallowed wall joining.

 

I wanted to do it with one curtainwall because of the way the mullion patterns would lay out.  I didn't want to have a condition where to boarder mullions came up against each other.

You do not have to place mullions on every border.  So when I have a condition like this, I just drop the mullions on the adjoing CW.

Okay,

 

Do you think the profile of the wall is simple too complex ?  It would be nice to keep it as one element if possible.

 

 

Thanks for your help though. I will try breaking it down into smaller wall sections.
