Please help me figure out this curtain wall/window/skylight?

Recommended Posts

I have recently started using Vectorworks BIM capabilities. I am working on this project , it has this sloped window which turns into skylight.

I am struggling to model this part as I am not sure which way to go. I would really appreciate If someone can lead me out of this darkness.

Please see attached picture of the actual window.


Thank you

As you can't slope a wall or window (stand corrected) I would be extrude along path for the frames and an extrude for the glass and rotate. 

To get your cut section use auto hybrid with 3 seperate classes for each part of hybrid, section,below,over so you can control how it looks.
