Make your wall with a typical wall type - 5" or whatever, to the arc you want. Select the wall and change the type to a storefront wall

You can do it with Modelling > Create > Solid > Blend Thatīs my suggestion...

Create a 'Cone Shaped' roof using 'Revolve' command as an 'In-palce' family and convert to 'Glazed roof'. Use curtain grids and mulions to divide the panels.

You can do it using the ruled curtain wall system tool. Modelling--> Ruled Curtain wall. You would then need to draw a 3d line for the lower circle and then make the upper circle smaller on a different level, unfortunately you cannot go to an exact point. Then select the ruled curtain tool, select the two lines and then start adding grids etc... You may also have to do it as two halves. I haven't actually tried it as such but it should work...

This is my suggestion done with Solid > Blend and Void > Blend and the mullions are just Solid > Extrudes

Here you can see the glassing. You can use whatever family you like. I used Roof!!! because I could not find any family for Curtain Walls It is one Blend with Solid and another inside made with Void

And here are the homemade " mullions". First make a wall going North-South or in some other direction. And then Modelling > Create choose some arbitrary family: Entourage??? Then... Just do one mullion by Solid Extrude. using a side of the wall as a workplane Mirror the first extrusion in the same family Copy the two mullions Rotate them If you want more mullions just copy and rotate Finish the family

The ruled curtain system suggested of Mr Spot turned out to be so nice to me so I had to test it myself. The circles had to be divided a lot of times so it was some work to do before applaying the curtains.... And you cannot use curved glass But it is the method... Yeah! Really niice

Mine was done with only 4 lines (2 lots of half circles). The other advantage of this method is you can easily adjust the height of the cone by adjusting the levels the lines were drawn on.

Thanks for the tips. It was only to use Modelling>Curtain Grid to split the big window you got first got then you used Ruled Curtain Systems on a part - quarter - of a circle But I got a bug using this method ... Have a look at the image.,.. I think it is a bug... Something is it?!.,
