Hi all.


Student here.

I've been struggling with the double-skin facade of our huge office building.

The building itself has been modelled from a Mass Model. I used Curtain System to create our glass panel walls. After this, I copied each Curtain System and offset it with 800mm, which we decided to be the distance between our two glass panels in the double-skin facade.

This is where I run in to trouble. As seen on the picture, the original Curtain System is marked in RED, and the offset Curtain System in GREEN. I can't use the tool "Join", because they are not drawn as regular walls.

Does anyone have any tips or tricks, as to how I can connect the two different systems?


Thanks in advance.


Kind regards,

You will have to use two different masses.... And every time you need to change this, you will have to edit the appropriate mass.
