Position Framework

Complete elements of different suppliers and different series can be combined in a so-called position framework. The framework is generated as a line model. The individual elements are inserted into this line model and linked with each other. Thereby complete element curtain walls can be created, such as e.g. a combination of slide doors or fire protection series with elements from a window series within a position.
