Probably your computer does not have high performance so it will delay the processing during the 3d window and especially during the rendering!!!

The simplest way is probably to make two curtain walls. Otherwise it would probably take writing custom panel types. Depends on your details.

If you don't need a detailed view, set the Curtain Wall Model View Options for the 3D window to Symbolic. Much faster.

Anyway, check the settings of your driver and your video card capabilities. Sounds like it lacks the oomph somewhat.
