In this movie, we're going to look at manually created curtain walls.…In the previous movie, we looked at the curtain wall object and we saw how it was…a series of grids and mullions in a pattern and those were driven by the type.…Here we're going to look at how we can layout the grid pattern manually, so that…we can have a little bit more freedom and flexibility with the design.…So, I'm in a file called Grids and Mullions.…And, I'm going to zoom in here, on the front entry and you can see I just have a…blank wall here. So I'm going to go to my wall tool, open…up my type selector and make sure that I'm choosing the curtain wall type from the…curtain wall family so they both say curtain wall.…
And this is the most generic curtain wall it doesn't have any mullions or grids in…it what's so ever. Now like we did in the previous movie I'm…going to highlight, the exterior wall here, and click my first point.…Now I'm at about one foot off the corner, and it's kind of important that you back…up off the corner a little bit here because if you get too close to the corner…
