    Curved wall with sloping top

    Now, I know you will have read the title and thought "gumby..!!" thats easy, check old threads etc.. But Im thinking this one is a little more complex..

    I have a wall that follows the line of a ramp and acts as like a balustrade. The ramp is shaped as a straight segment, an arc, and then another straight segment. The wall has to follow the ramp at 1100mm high all the way along. So I have created my wall and started to create in place components, voids etc, but none of them seemed to work. The closest I got was a sweep, but I can only choose 1 segement as the path, and I need three..?

    Have a look at the attached picture, and it should explain it a bit mre. The blue lines are the wall illustrating the 3 segments, and the red line I have drawn, is how I want the top to slope. The top of the wall has to be square, so no, creating a ref plan and attaching the top of the wall to it doesnt work..

    Any help / clues gratefully received..

    Cheers

    One of the posts from The Best Posts of the Month of January can give you the answer. There was an excellent solution back then, provided by Martijn de Riet (mdradvies), about a similar issue: see this thread

        Hello! I also have the same problem but this time with Curtain Walls (see attached image). Can you please help me out in resolving this problem i have since you notice the Edit Profile of the Curtain Wall is disabled at this situation where it curves around the corner not letting me edit it to follow the slant of the adjacent curtain wall. Does anybody have an idea on how to do this? Big thanks for those who can help.

          A curtain system on a mass should work for that. Create a curved mass in the corner and use a void to cut the roof slope out.

            You can attach the CW to the ref plane.

              I did mine with a swept blend void to cut the top at an angle along the curve. Take a bit of brain power to figure out your elevations but the result is pretty spot on. Plus you can use spot elevations to coordinate with engineering.

                This can be done with the Conceptual Massing Tools, Create Mass Family with Spline Thru Points.
                Load Mass into Project; then Create Wall by Face.

                See attached images.

                First is Mass Family

                Second is inside Project, Concrete Wall created by Face of Mass.

                  I'll study how the curtain system on a mass is done first because I don't know how to do it yet, hehehe.. Thanks a lot though, I really appreciate all the help I can get. Cheers!

                    I'll try this solution you gave as well. Thanks a lot Cliff!
