    problem in inserting door into curtain wall ?

    Hi everyone, when i am assigning door into the curtain wall that i loaded into family (type: curtain wall single glass), there is strange message appear every time and then.
    all i need to know the reason and how to assign the door into curtain wall.
    (noting that curtain wall is assigned by face into a mass for purpose of tilted curtain wall)

    The normal steps are these: Select the panel in the curtain wall where you want to insert the door > Edit type > Load > select the Curtain wall single glass door family. I tried to do those steps in a tilted curtain wall created on a mass, and it worked well. Are you doing a different sequence of steps?

      more importantly, how is this door going to work? Doors that are "in plane" with a tilted wall don't work very very due to the fact that they either swing into the ground or have to open inward, but then swing in an upward direction. Most doors in tilted walls are built into a vestibule where the door can be vertical.

        Yes, Scott. I asked myself the same question about the swing of the door. I suppose that Ahmed has that figured out, but I would like to know how.

          Problem here is probably not the tilted part, but the fact that his panels don't seem to be completely rectangular. And a custom panel (which includes all doors/windows) cannot have non-rectangular forms. Only system panels (or AC-panels) can do that.

              I would change the panels to empty...and put in a non-hosted door..

                  But not all... here´s a shot from a project which I had the pleasure of being the Project Manager on...

                  The tilted CW doors, are "only" used as Emergency Exits - They are top-hung, and mounted with pneumatic cylinders to compensate for the weight of the door.
