    Exclamation curtain wall won't attach to roof

    Hello everyone!!!

    I have a problem attaching my CW to a roof. An error which says <<Can't make type "3D PANEL WITH LAYERS : AIW 230mm INTERNAL".>>.

    this is just a multi layer panel family that I've created earlier - it consist of 3 extrusions made from an elevation view and attached to ref planes (top, bottom, left, right)....as well as attached from Ref. Level to thickness defining ref. planes.

    I tested an empty file with default solid panel - it works ... but with my compound panel family it won't attach. Now I wonder if there is any constraints from the family editor which may conflict with one another - or what?

    I'm guessing your roof is at an angle which is causing your panels to become non-rectangular. Custom curtain panel families cannot make those shapes which is why you're getting that error. I haven't messed around with them too much, but I think adaptive components are the way to make those shapes.
