Please fix Bugs in Curtain Wall Tool

Hello Grasphisoft Team,

 

It seems that in this tool are a significant number of bugs. When making changes with the geometry in the ground floor plan...

  • Individual profiles get putted back to basic settings, and/or...
  • ...distances, spaces etc, in the setting are also putted back
  • deleted parts appear again
  • structure line are changing... completely different positions, additional lines etc.
  • after editing the curtain wall a few times, it is not possible anymore to edit some parts

 

So currently I've to rework, rework and rework the curtain wall again... repeating the same steps at the same places on and on...

I agree, Snow. They also need to add curtail Wall doors tags on the floor plan and elevations. Doors need to be on schedules too. So many wishes, anyway. It’s a good start, Snow.

Another thing with the tool is, that we have mostly:

  • the same profile for post and beam – but I've to define both separately... and
  • different ones for horizontally and vertically profiles – but I can not differ between it in the basic settings

Another function I think is missing: It is very hard to get integrated glazed cornerings....
... and if you get it (with tricks) in the ground floor plan, it doesn't look well in elevation.

 

Maybe it should generally be differentiated between glass-post and beam facade and other kinds of curtain walls, the components are so differently.
