custom shape of a curtain panel results in deleting of the panel such as the Planar Glazed Panel and replacing it with a regular system panel.

please take a look at the image i attached.

Planar glazed panels on slanted edges of the curtain system are not processed and being replaced with regular glass panels.

what can i do with it to solve the problem correctly?

 

the version is RAC2008

I have not had to make any special panels like you have used here so I can not speak from experience.  I would assume that the panels you have created can-not be "flexed" into the shapes you have at the edges of your system so REVIT reverts to a standard panel.  Probably because you constrained the top 'buttons" to the top of the panel.   You may have to create a panel with only bottom "buttons" and then add the top ones individually.

You cannot use a loaded curtain panel family for irregular shaped panels.  As such I would suggest you place your patch fittings independently for these sections.

I found when you edit a profile (extents and length etc Winking of an independant panel you can then also change its material prperties,

that may change the glass to type you are looking for...

that answer the q?

We have found a fix around this problem.

We were also unable to get Revit to recognize a trapezoidal shape for a loaded curtain wall family. Instead, we created a panel family that was a typical rectangular one, with the trapezoidal corner piece "cantilevering" off one side. In the project file, we first made the edge panel empty, then replaced the typical panel next to it, with the custom double panel. The double panel was created with an instance parameter where you had to manually type in the width of the trapezoidal panel.

It takes a while to replace all of the affected panels in the building, but it is geometrically accurate. I have attached images of the double panel family (with parameters showing) and a final closeup of the building corner

Looks like a nicew workaround.  I think this problem is fixed in 2011.
