    Divide Surface

    Is there any way to use divide surface command for curtain wall surface, without creating Mass form ?

    No. Divide surface only works on masses.

      Yes, you can create a surface with the generic model adaptive template, divide that surface, load it into a project, and create a curtain system (I think that's what you mean by "curtain wall surface"). "Mass" is a category, usually understood as a solid that can be sliced in floors and quantified in schedules with perimeters, areas, etc. A "mass" is made with the mass template, or as in-place element. But not necessarily you have to use a "mass" to create a curtain system. It can be a generic model, too.

        Thanks Alfredo
        You are currect . I want use pattern base panels in divided surface, but avoid to use mass form. Actually I need to place Musharabiya screens describied by Andy Milburn in his blog "Shades of Grey" Will you please guide the process to achieve the goal ?

          My point was- you need EITHER a mass or a generic model, both of which are built in the Form Editor. Aka the Massing editor. You cannot use divided surface on a preexisting element in the model, including curtain walls and curtain systems.
