The boundary offset for curtain walls will be generated according to the following rules:
The net, usable and gross boundaries will be generated as one segment, offset to the base boundary of the curtain wall. In order to produce the correct offset results, the boundaries may need to be manually offset to the preferred location.

The usable offset boundary may fail to offset correctly when columns or mass element are located in the corner of a wall connection. To workaround this issue, use the manual offset boundary type and manually edit the boundaries to the correct location.

Legacy datasets Warning!
In drawings from a previous version, it is possible for spaces to disappear or display a defect marker after turning on the ‘Automatically update associative spaces’ in the Options dialog.
