    Change sloping curtain system to vertical (locally only)

    Someone asked me how to change the orientation of the sloped mullions to be vertical, where the curved exterior walls meet the mass. This then enables the removal of those panels to create a walkway that perfectly fits the interface.

    I can't get vertical gridlines at all, they always slope to the direction of the existing ones (which were created as a curtain system on the face of a mass).

    I've attached a photo and I can send the model by pm/email etc if need be.

    Many thanks for any assistance

    Use intersects, that way you can have any orientation you like:

    If you still want to have the benefits of a grid system, i have a workaround, just let me make some screenshots...
