I've got storefront windows on 45 degree angled walls, and the windows touch the corners where the walls meet.  The windows are not cutting the adjacent walls (see attached image).  Any ideas?

 

Thanks!

You should have placed a plan view as well with the window picked.

How was your window opening cut?

Is this "storefront"  window set to automatically imbed?

Here's the plan view.

The storefront windows were drawn over top of the wall with the heights set.

'automatically embed' was checked.

I'm sorry.  I'm relatively new to Revit and a bit slow in general.

I thought I answered both questions...  can you be more specific?

Attached is an image of my settings and a sample .rvt model of the condition.

Apologies for my slow up-take, but I'm extremely grateful for your help!

OK  

First - the bad thing.  You have used an automatic "curtain/storefront" wall.  I CAUTION YOU ABOUT USING THESE!  These are fine for initial layouts and quickly getting equal mullion spacings but when you need to adjust them, they will cause you many problems.  Now that you have generated this window in place, change it to a new type where none of the muilion spacings vertical and horizontal and none of the muillion types are set.  When you do this, REVIT will say that the gridlines will become disassociated and want to know if you want them deleted.  No not delete but you do want them to be disassociated.

If you notice, this automatic "curtain/storefront" wall is set to automatically imbed.  That typically is good because it will cut its own opening.  In this case, that is not working for you because you are so close to the corner.  You might trypulling the length back from the corners and see what happens.
