curtain wall panel

  • Posted on: 26 December 2014

For this delivery we had to create a facade composed of various panels.

I had decided to think a new panel.

Step 1 I open a new file family -> Metric curtain wall panel (i create the single panel)

 larghezza pannello

  • lunghezza pannello

Step 4 Now i can create an extrusion create -> Extrusion -> draw -> rectangle.

then i aligned the rectangle with the reference planes. 

Step 5 i create a set of reference planes to realize the openings. With the command “void extrusion” i create the openings.

Step 6 there are three type of openings ( 0.05 cm, 0.1 cm, 0.2 cm). I assigned at each opening a new parameter.

Step 7 Now i can compose my facade system with the panels.

Step 8 i open a new project file -> Project  ->template file ->none -> metric.  With the command “Architectural wall” i create a facade.
