hi, i am practising revit through tutorials and books and am finding some problems while doing so. presently i am doing a tutorial on custom curtain walls from an online tutorial. but i am getting stuck at some places because the tutorial is not clear enough. 

the pdf of the tutorial i am uploading . see if someone can help me. the tut is on custom curtain walls  but i am not able to figure out in which family the author is trying to make the mullions. 

secondly , how do i insert a array based parameter in a family as stated in the tut. i hav only done dimension based parameters till now.

Hi, you can use the "Metric/Imperial-Profile" or "Metric/Imperial - Profile-Mullion" (like you can see in the image attached) to create those "Profiles"....

The mullions are created in the profile - mullion family.

hey ,

even i tried with the proflie family but the problem is that the tut. asks to parameter the height within the family editor  which cannot be done with the profile family . 

secondly if i use it as a profile and try to use it in curtain walls i get an error saying that the profile is more than one loop so not possible to use.. 

so i think the mullion is not made as a mullion but as a generic model and then the horizontal and vertical are created separately and then assembled in one component . correct me if i am wrong .

Yes, reading through the tutorial, the mullions were not created as profiles but as generic models as you suggest, although the tutorial does not mention this.
