Tilted Windows?

Dear All,

Is it possible to model tilted windows in eQuest? Specifically, we have
30 deg. inclined wall which is made up of curtain wall glass. I was
hoping to model this wall as an additional surface in Detailed Mode, but
now I am not sure whether we will be able to place windows on this surface.

Thanks and regards,

Omer,

The windows are a child component of the wall surface, so they will have the
same tilt as the inclined wall. How much of the tilted wall surface will be
curtain wall, the whole thing or just a portion?

Omer,

You should be able to set up the wall that the window is mounted in at any
tilt that you want. Use the helps by right clicking on the wall components
to learn about using the X,Y and Z coordinates to set up the wall tilt and
the window the way you want.
