Curtain wall tool

I WISH:
for a curtain wall tool.
Not another library window but a tool!
Imagine selecting a line and a profile (something like the profiler) and transforming it to a curtain wall with mullions and transoms. Imagine clicking on a profile and using it for a specific mullion....
Imagine having an infill which can be treated like a wall and inserting inside it a door (just like the custom panels in doors).
this way you can create complex doors and windows, for shops buildings etc or completely the facade of a building.
And this can go on a loop
The bad thing is that such a tool exists in another cad application...
Any thoughts?
Is there someone in the world who wouldn't use such a tool?

Does graphisoft considers this as a "need of some local or specialized markets"? If so do we have to wait for cigraph to make it again?


thank you for your time
Petros

ps if this wish is posted by someone else again please consider it a reminder

This sounds like a wall add-on to me.

Thanks for the trust on Cigraph add-ons Petros...
Maybe we could create a new topic in this Forum "What do we want in the next Cigraph add-on?".


Of course, I was only joking!

ArchiGlazing does most or everything that you wished for; IMHO redoing and refinign it (new version?) should do!

I was going to suggest that this sounds like a job for Cigraph (or Superman ) but I didn't want to put you on the spot. Working as a wall add-on seems most desirable for ease of use and the possibility to automatically resolve the corners and intersections. I have done the same with custom doors and windows but it gets a bit fussy.

Fabrizio you just took the words out of my mouth! I was thinking of suggesting a wish list for you. One question is if such a tool should be implemented in AC since I believe it is useful to everyone.
Matthew and Djordje: if it is a wall addon it would probably act as a window and then we will end up with a parametric window....(same as in archiglazing).
And suppose that archiglazing gets improved why should it be separated from the core of AC?
Anyway, I'll try to find some time tomorrow and post some examples in what I mean to be more precise..
