- [Narrator] Want to wrap up our look at…the three different kinds of wall system families,…by talking about the curtain wall in this video.…Now a curtain wall is the most complex of the three,…basic wall, stacked wall, and curtain wall.…And that's because you use elements…called curtain grids to actually sub divide…the curtain wall into several different…bays or complex grid patterns within…the structure of the wall.…There's two ways you can do that.…You can do it individually by placing…each grid line yourself, manually,…to create a complex and manual pattern,…or you can do a more automated pattern…based on a rule of repetition…by creating a curtain wall type.…
Now in this video, I'm going to focus on…the type based curtain walls,…and kind of give you the overview of…how the curtain wall behaves.…And then in a future video we'll look at…a more manual process.…So to get started I'm going to click the wall button,…and that's because remember, that a curtain wall is a wall.…So you actually use the wall command to create one.…
