Use the Chained geometry method to create a multi-segment Curtain Wall based on a reference line drawn as a chained polyline. For each segment of a chained Curtain Wall, you can set up a separate Scheme, with a distinct pattern for each.
Trace the outline of the slab to create the Curtain Wall reference line, using the same pet palette controls as when drawing a polyline. Double-click to complete the reference line.
In the appearing Place Curtain Wall dialog, enter the Curtain Wall height. Here, we will enter 6200 mm.
Note: The three icons in the Positioning part of the Place Curtain Wall dialog box give you three different methods for defining the Curtain Wall height.
Click Place to close the dialog. The Curtain Wall is placed.
The result: a single Curtain Wall with three Base Surfaces, based on a three-segment Reference Line.
A Frame is always placed at the place where two adjacent segments are joined. Such a Frame cannot be deleted. (If you wish, you can set its type to Invisible, by selecting the Frame in Edit mode and adjusting its Type in Frame Settings.)
A Chained Curtain Wall has as many Schemes as it has segments: you can select one Scheme at a time and customize each Scheme separately.
Make any changes in the Grid Pattern, or modify the Grid Pattern’s origin. The selected Scheme is now a Custom Scheme.
Click OK to apply the changes.
To edit the Curtain Wall’s individual Members using the Curtain Wall Edit mode, select the Curtain Wall and click the Edit button. (If you select the Curtain Wall in the Floor Plan or Section/Elevation, this is the “Edit in 3D” button.)
