Curtainwall Corner AC26

TJ Admin

I wonder if there is a way to clean up the corner of a Curtainwall, like the two options below. Or will a custom frame do that? But then what should the custom frame look like?

I want the corner to present like any of these:

So long as the 2 frames touch ...

I think you can also change the frame to a corner frame in the settings, but I don't use curtain walls all that much so I'm not 100% sure.

 

In the HELP menu, go to the Archicad YouTube channel and search for curtain wall videos.

Thank you very much. Now it works.

No such function in AC26.  And I just want the glass (or panel) to join at the corner. Thanks for your input. My curtain wall is one object and not split as you suggest. See the image I posted...

That command is definitely in 26 - you may need to check your menus in the Work Environment.

You may not be using a standard WE, in which case you will need to add the command or switch to a standard WE.

 

I am not a curtain wall expert.

It seems you can have a common frame at the corner (you can even make the frame invisible).

But it seems the panel can not mitre.

Unless someone can show us how to do it.

I am assuming it is a butt-glazed connection you are after?

 

Barry.
