    Create a mass and inside of the massing toolbar there is an option to place a wall by mass use that!

    We have a video for it at www.archdesignlabs.com if its confusing still.

      Done. But it tells me that "Wall type 'Curtain Wall 1' is incompatible with picked face. Only basic wall types are accepted."

      The face that i've picked is not slanted,but curved, and i want to create a curtain wall on it. Can u give a little more help please?..

        Well if its curved that is completely different. You cant say slanted if you mean curved haha. Try using Exterior Glazing or Storefront and see if the issue still exists. I have done plenty of walls like this so I know its possible it just all depends on how its modeled and what it looks like. You can also tell the structure of a basic wall to be glass as a work around. Attach a picture?

            Create the shape as a conceptual mass instead then load that into the project you are using an in place mass currently it looks like.

              I think it will work with curtain systems

                Create a generic model of required shape and add curtain system to it. .

                It works. . .

                  Oh dang. I just realized that I didnt write curtain system. In my head and on my computer I was doing it but was saying the wrong way. Very sorry.

                    I have not used RAC in a few years, but back then they had "Sloped Glazing" as a choice when creating curtain systems...do you not need to use this?
