17-5. Curtain Walls

ArchiCAD Training (Best Practices Lesson 17-5)

In these two ArchiCAD training sessions (60 and 65 minutes each) we explore the curtain wall tool, a complex framework for building glazed systems in a wide variety of geometric configurations. It also can be adapted for use in suspended ceilings and other applications.

In the Curtain Walls Basics training session, we look at how to place and manipulate simple vertical curtain wall systems.

Placing a simple curtain wall is similar to a standard wall, in that you can click a start and end point, or use the chain option to draw a polyline in a series of straight and/or curved segments. After completing the plan entry, a dialog comes up to allow you to choose the base elevation and height of the wall system.
