System-Level Editing

Open Curtain Wall Default Settings by double-clicking on the Curtain Wall Tool. Or select the Curtain Wall you wish to edit, and open Curtain Wall Selection Settings.
Use these dialog box pages to define general System (position, display) preferences, as well as options for the Scheme, Frame, Panel, Junction and Accessory members.
Note: Once the Curtain Wall is placed, you can customize individual members of a selected Curtain Wall, using Edit Mode.
Modifications to Curtain Wall System Selection Settings will modify all affected parts of the selected Curtain Wall. For example, if you modify a Mullion Frame’s surface, the surface of all the Mullion Frames in the Curtain Wall will be changed when you click OK to leave the dialog box. However, Custom Frames are not affected by changes to the Mullion Frame settings.
Note that Frame definition occurs on three different pages: Boundary, Mullion, Transom: this means that a single Curtain Wall will have three different default Frame definitions (or “classes”) at once.
You can set all Frame classes to have the same settings if you wish. After editing the System-level parameters of one of the three Frame classes), click the Uniform Frame Classes button at the top of the Frame Settings dialog box of any of the three frame classes.
Note that Panel definition occurs on two separate pages: Main and Distinct: this means that a single Curtain Wall will have two default panel types (or “classes.”)
You can set both Panel classes to have the same settings if you wish. After editing the System-level parameters of one of the Panel classes, click the Uniform Panel Classes button at the Top of the Panel Settings dialog box of either of the Panel classes.
