Revit has several different tools to use for drawing curtain walls. There are a number of different ways of initiating them. I am looking for a means of building a raked (overhanging) curtain wall glazing system. The overhanging wall joins to a vertical wall.

 The only tool I can find that will do this is the Massing/Curtain System tool. This yeilds a pretty crude result, though. I also can't figure out how to control the mullion angle with Curtain System. It seems to want to orient them on the bias, beacuse one end of my vertical wall is sloped (where it joins to the raked wall).

 So, guess I'm looking for one of two things: Either a way of constructing Curtain Wall as a function of the face of a Mass, or a means of rotating (in section) a portion of Curtain Wall or Storefront constructed in the conventional vertical manner.

 The idea is to be able to produce a raked curtain wall with the same attributes as a vertical curatin wall, and that will join to a vertical curatin wall.

 Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks!

Okay, made some progress with this when I realized that the mullions and panels in the Curtain System tool's product are editable. So I can use the Curtain System By Face tool for the overhanging glazing.

 Now I have another problem, though. See attached pic. The masses at right and left, to which the Curtain Systems are attached, were both formed as solid extrusions. The Curtain System By Face tool set the mullion grid vertical on one of them, and on the bias on the other.

I can't figure out how to edit the mullion axis, or what the Curtain System By Face tool is using to establish that angle. The masses are the same, except for the fact that the left one projects farther horizontally than the right one.

Thank you very much, Mr. Typhoon!!! Very helpful!

You could have just told me to highlight the panel and click on the center icon to activate the axes, though. :-)

 That does completely answer my question.
