VW 2017 Curtain Wall Edit Tool

Recommended Posts


I need to edit a curtain wall that is already in my model. I need to select certain panels to add a spandrel texture. 

I can not see the the "Edit Curtain Wall" button in the Tool Set. When I select the curtain wall and right-click, I have the option to "Edit Using Curtain Wall Tool" but if I select that option, nothing happens. I don't get any of the editing mode options to select certain panels, frames or any other option. How can I get my Edit Curtain Wall to work?

I am not sure if curtain walls are included in a VW Fundamentals only version.

that could be a reason for the tool missing.


If you have a Design Series like VW Architect,

and use a custom Workspace, maybe even converted from a previous version,

you should try to go to one of the VW delivered Workspaces like Architect, to see

if the Curtain Wall Tool reappears.


As it does not work with the right mouse button options, it may be the whole plugin

not loaded, not just a missing icon.

Maybe a more serious problem then.

Thank you zoomer! I found it. I had to add it  to my tool set using the Workspace Editor.
