    Default 2 Questions - Curtain Wall Panels and Sloped Glazing

    I have two questions regarding the use of curtain walls.

    (1) Curtain Wall Panels.
    I created a curtain wall system with a pre-defined grid layout. I want to change the color that several of the glass panels render, is there a way to change a group of panels without having to select them one by one and change their colour / material?

    (2) Sloped Glazing.
    I changed a roof to sloped glazing to create a standing seam metal roof. Once I do this, I loose my roof thickness (structure) capabilities. How would you go about getting a roof thickness showing again below the sloped glazing? Do I need to apply fascias and soffit? Is there a way to apply sloped glazing overtop of a basic roof, rather than changing the roof itself to sloped glazing?

    (1) Draw selection box around the panels to be changed. Filter down selection to Curtain Wall Panels only. Swap existing panels for new panel type.

    (2) I think you’re missing the step to change the glass panel to a roof panel having a thickness and offset, after you’ve created the mullion. – see attached.

    Question Re: 2 Questions - Curtain Wall Panels and Sloped Glazing

    beegee,

    Thanks for the help, I took a look at your suggestions and have a question regarding the first question I had asked....

    (1) After selecting a group of panels, where do I find a "filtering" option? I tried using "TAB" but it only selects a single panel within the selection group.

    Thanks,

    C. Stechyshyn

    I know it can be done, I just don't know how to do it yet
