This week’s featured object is Curtain #1580, which models a curtain track with fabric drapes.
The track follows either a straight, L-shaped or U-shaped path. For the L and U shapes, the corner angles may be adjusted and the rail bends around a radius to allow the curtains to slide smoothly.
The curtains themselves may be opened or closed. The curtain fabric falls naturally in 3D views, and vertically in section and elevation views.
The path may be adjusted graphically using dynamic hotspots.

The most valuable setting is the path shape. This makes the curtain useful not only for regular windows, but also for corner and bay windows.
By default, the curtain hangs below the rail. However, you can offset the curtain vertically up …
… and horizontally in front of or behind the rail.
Use the dynamic hotspots to adjust the angle and length of each section.
