Curtain Panel

I created a curtain panel family and loaded it into my project where I had created a mass and divided the surface, and changed the panels to be my curtain panel family i created. The mass has a curve that I want the panel to be on the inside of, but the panel is always placed on the outside. File is attached. So on the smaller curve on the north side of my building, the panels are placed on the inside of the building instead of the outside. How can I place the panels on the outside of the building along the curve? Thanks for your help.

For some reason, i am unable to upload an image of the curve i am talking about. Imagine its a curve like this "(" and my panel is automatically populating on the left side and i need it on the right side.

If all is wrong orientated apply Component Flip


If only some columns are flipped and not all of them , you can try to place an edge at the limit where the problem appears and then apply flip:

  1. select the curved surface
  2. Modify/Form > Form Element >Add Edge -place the edge in the position where your problem appears
  3. Apply patterns to both areas ..if in one of them has wrong orientation, apply Component Flip - check it

If the rows are wrong orientated use Add Profil
