wall end condition?

So I have a curved wall meeting up with a curved/angled curtain wall system.
What is the trick to angle out the end of the wall so it will butt up with
the curtain wall?

thanks

Go to the elevation that shows the side of masonry wall, click on the wall
then in the ribbon click edit profile, once in edit mode draw a line at the
same angle of the curtain wall, trim/extend the upper and lower lines to the
newly created line, erase the vertical line representing the old wall edge
and you are done .

Make the masonry wall longer, use an in-place void to remove the portion
below the curtain wall.

will that work if the face plane of the curtain wall is curved? You
wouldn't be able to use a line for the trim/extend...
