    This one is for Dave.... Mister CW. :)

    The CW, in the CW, in the CW, juxtaposed with the Shared Nested LBDC's for reconciling Masonry.

    I honestly thought about breaking each mullion up in to two parts, to get the mitering to work properly (would have been a CW in a CW in a CW in a CW in a CW in a CW), but its a 3D coordination and verification model, so they dont need the mitering to work, as im not doing the shop drawings.

    But the shim spacings are all there, the profiles are all correct, and we are about to start banging on the doors themselves.

    Are you managing interior mullions as well or just the perimeter? I've tried this but couldn't figure out how to adjust grids in specific nested CWs.

        Love to know how you're doing that then. Maybe a YouTube for this too?

        Speaking of, did you see my comment on your brick detailing video? Interesting approach. How do you deal with alternating courses? What you did here changes just a few inches either side!

        Reminds me, I once got into an argument with a peer about what constitutes a masonry dimension. He added up all the block sizes and joints to show me it was 3/8" shorter than I was saying. Didn't think of it at the time but asking him to do the same one course either side I bet would have helped.

            Aaron, I think that you are on the right track. This is a 2 panel louver, nested in a door adaptor frame, which is nested in a cw window frame, which is nested in a curtain wall frame. Could keep going but I'm on my way out of town.

            Greg, I don't understand the issue with adjusting grids in a nested curtain wall. I just move them where I want them and they do as they are told I'll be back Sat if you want to discuss further.

              Yep! You know what they say... The model is 100% done when its 100% built.

                I'll bring my laptop!

                The problem isn't adjusting the grids, it's adding new ones to the correct nested level. Sometimes I want the top, sometimes the 3rd one in but I never know which CW I have until I click. Unless something has changed? Ideally, I think when you tab through to select each nested level, the name of the CW would show up in the status bar or highlight (even better) the CW being adjusted in some way.

                More baseball?

                  Filter off the ones you don't want to add grids to then add them [emoji106]
