    Curtain System : Dave jones & Mark B or who ever have answers. Please Help

    I have a mass form1.jpg that has sloping walls, sloping out from the base to the top at about 6 degrees.
    Onto this mass surfaces I assign a curtain systems ( Have done individual surfaces and as combined system) and then rotate the grid line 36 deg and 54 deg to creat a romboid (diamond) pattern in the curtain system.
    Problem is that twoo of the four walls revert back to normal 90 deg alignment while the others rotate and form the new pattern.
    I need this pattern on all walls.

    I was hoping there is way I can get this from normal curtain sytems without having to go to a Curtain Panel Pattern Base family. (I allready have a 30 storey high tower with custom pattern panels in and I need to keep the model smaller. Also dont have time to trial custom panels. This is for comp design and I need to rendering soon and preparing presentation)

    Thank you to the regulars your answers are always appreciated.
    Sorry i have been so quite but the BIM guy now has to design aswell.

    Could you post a file or ask Munk to host it somewhere?

      Good day Martijn.
      i would love to post a file bit at this stage I cant post my model. The office wont like me throwing our design out onto the web at this stage.
      Will try and recreate in mass and upload. Have gone to custom pattern panels now to get it going.
      Thank you

        Tried to recreate it, but it´s working as it should for me

        Like Martjin suggested, let´s see the file... Dropbox ? Or maybe email it to me ?

          I had it working like this to. Maybe I am doing something wrong
          Try making two adjacent sides sloping out and the other two oposite sides sloping in. THis is when I got the error.
          Thank you Munkholm

            Just did that, and the grids are still rhomboid

              ok
              that is unfair
              I just spend my whole morning to try and get that to work and had to go recreate all the panles with pattern based systems.
              i will send you my trail model then you can try and fix it.Give me a few minutes.

                Mass + Curtain.rvt

                Here we go
                I think I realize what is causing the inconcistency.
                If you grab the top edge of the surfaces and pull them in or out, thus sloping the walls, you have no problem, but as soon as you start graping the top corners and manipulating their position then you getr the one side reverting nack to default angles as per model file.

                I have gon around this with going with custom Pattern Panels. Just a few seconds extra in the end.
                Will be back intot the forum hopefully as soon as this competition is over.

                Thank you guys.
                Hope your well all the best.

                  Yep, this is a HUGE backstabber when using Curtain Walls you modify the total wall. Adjusted Grid placements will revert to default. In order to prevent this from happening you should use an empty curtain wall (no H+V grids) and place all gridlines manually. This prevents the system from resetting to default when you modify the total wall.

                  Hope to see you some more around here soon...
