Shift glass plane of Curtain Wall?

Hello!
I can’t seem to find a parameter to shift the plane of the glass in a Curtain Wall.

Is it possible?
Thanks a lot!

Hi Eugen,

Yes, you need to open the curtain wall style editor, select the curtain wall style and, in the location tab, choose the alignment you prefer.

Hello!
I get it now…
This parameter does not work in my case because the mullions have the same depth as the frame - which is a common case:


(found this after googling quickly)

When I make the mullions smaller or delete them at all, the glass can be aligned as you say.
However, deleting the mullions is not an option, because I need them.
I’d also suggest adding another offset parameter for the glass inside the mullions. A free value, though, not only exterior/center/interior.
Thank you!

Hello,

I think you are right, an offset parameter for the glass might be useful for this kind of walls. This feature is already in our wishlist, so I will add your vote to it.

Regards,
Alfonso

A possible (clumsy) workaround for now is to create 2 Curtain Walls on top of each other, one with glass and hidden frame and mullions of the desired size, the other with visible frame and mullions of the same depth.
