I have been having a lot of problems with curtain walls. Specifically when I have two walls together at the corner of a building, and I want to use curtain walls for windows that join right on the corner with a corner mullion. I can never get the curtain walls to trim right into the corner.Can anyone help with this?

The default curtain wall panel has an offset that sets it away fron the centreline.  Select the panel (not the wall) and go into its properties, where you can change the offset to 0.  This sets them to the centreline.

This has to combined with the way the panels work with the mullions.  There are profiles for corner mullions.  If there is no mullion on the corner you will still have a join (which could just be a small mullion).  Adjust the panel offset and the end of the curtain wall to obtain the desired result.

hello there!

I am trying to develop a façade like the one you can see in the attached image...

starting from a curtain wall, I need to divide it full/empty space and this panels are made of glass.

I thought curtain walls could be the way, but I am having a lot of problems.

any suggestion?

Use the "Conceptual Mass" to create that kind of CW.

Well... with a little work you can do that too with CW family....

ok, but:

1-I made it as conceptual mass, but then how can i used inside my revit project? in order to count each part of the structure? assigning material -are glass panels- and specification to be be added in the schedule?

2-I think I can design a family as you did, isn't it?, but I don't understand how to use it. it could be very useful to set some parameters: width/height and distance from each panels

3-I am sorry, I am switching from rhino/grasshopper to revit and I am still confused!

ok!

i did it!

now I have a new problem: I designed a panel that is made by: 1vertical panel+1small horizontal panel+1vertical panel+1horizontal panel+1vertical panel

when I designed my cw with my custum panel revit is coounting into the schedule the "composite panel 1+1+1+1+1" how can I divide the panels? because I would like to count the verticals and the horizontals, since the verticals are not always the same, and the horizontal off course are different.

I hope the image will help you.

regards.
