    Are you sure the face of that mass is planar? Curtain Systems to that when its not Planar, they fan out across the face. Otherwise, you can alter the angles in the properties of the system.

      I think Aaron's diagnosis is correct.
      If you look way up in the upper left corner of your Curtain Wall, it does not line up with the wall behind it. And the gap is wider at the top than the bottom.

          I dont think the face of your mass is *flat* like a sheet of plywood. I think its warped. Warped = Curtain grids dont run parallel, they fan out across the surface.

            yeah, i just discovered the problem that the face of curtian wall in elevation is not 100% rectangle. it was tilted so the lines was tilted too, all i did that i fixed this lines to bo rectangle and it now fixed is that what you mean Twiceroadsfool ??

              Look at turning off the UV Grids and draw your own model lines and use Intersects--this lets you "project" them onto your warped surface and control the grid lines
              of a Divided Surface, as I recall.
