Curtain wall, window, floor plan representation and related zones


Hi everybody

I'm testing the facade-tool (curtain wall) and can't fix some points:

- 2D-opening line of a window in the floor plan

- the window don't know the relation to the room, it takes the relation from the hole curtain wall

Some ideas to fix that?

gs-model: showing situation in the model

gs-floor: which line we want to see in the floor plan (opening line of the window)

gs-fixpoint: no intelligent measure possible for the columns inside the facade, because there are no fixpoints, only at the end of the facade

gs-related zone: If you've a facade and inside many zones, the window doesn't know the related zone, it take one zone for every element.


Thank you for your support;)
