7.2.2 Nested Curtain Panels

2 minutesread

The Façade Manager along with the Glazing Analysis Tool supports Nested Components in Curtain Panels. This is where panels may consist of different components, sub-panels and materials. This is different to a curtain panel that is simply divided by grids and has various materials inserted it into it. Nested Panels are curtain panel families which are modeled independently, may be edited separately and are nested into a larger panel, possibly with other similar components.

Nested Curtain Panels within a Modular Panel

The Glazing Analysis Tool is a separate application but is bundled with FenestraPro for Revit and provides information on these types of Curtain Wall Panels.

Where Curtain Panel families are comprised of nested families which may have several different materials, the Glazing Analysis Tool provides a breakdown of these families and the ability to assign thermal properties to each nested component. Once properties are assigned in the Glazing Tool, they may be sent to FenestraPro for Revit by saving a CSV file.

Please see Section 7.2.3 below for guidelines on using the Glazing Analysis Tool and how the properties set there may be imported into FenestraPro for Revit.

Glazing Analysis Tool may be accessed from the Revit Menu under Add-ins
