    Curtain system with Cad imported mesh

    Hi there,
    I struggled to find some thread about this issue, but I wasn't able to find any.
    Here's the problem:

    I'm trying to make a glass covering/facade.
    In order to do so, I made a 3d mesh with autocad 2010 (witch I attach) but I don't know how to convert this in revit.
    Revit won't explod the imported CAD (don't know why, maybe it's too difficult a geometry?)
    I don't know how to make such a covering with a 3D model (instead of a mesh) which, maybe, revit would explode (?)

    Some help would be appreciated

    Welcome to the forum...
    You'll need to redo this in Revit cause you cannot explode a 3D Mesh.

    Am I correct that this thing is approx. 150x20m? If so, create a Conceptual Mass. Then apply a curtain system to it...

      Thank you for your response.
      Yes, the measures you reported are correct.
      I tried to make it, but, as you can see, the geometry of the descending parts is not simple.
      I made it using coon meshes. Is there a similar method in Revit?


        this should give you a good heads up

        & welcome to the wonderful world of Revit!

        There are no stupid questions, only stupid people


          Thanks a lot!
          I'll take a look at it in the next days
