Curved frames with Curtain Wall

Not applicable
Is there a way to have curved frame members in a curtain wall? For example, creating a curtain wall with a arched top?

I've tried changing the SCHEME limits with a arched top segment, but my total CW width is 10'-0" and unless I create a large number of vertical members, I get a very segmented, unappealing arch.



Not built in. You could change the top Boundary Frames to invisible, then place a Shell or Morph in their place to get a smoother curve.

You should add a Signature to your Profile (click the Profile button near the top of this page) with your ArchiCAD version and operating system (see mine for an example) for more accurate help in this forum.

Still no arched top curtain walls with the AC-24 CW tool? That is lame.
