I'm designing a fire station and am trying to put doors in a custom curtain wall i made through massing and patterns. I have tried approaching it from various ways but all prove unsuccessful, can anyone please help me figure out how to do this? thanks

If I am incorrect on your methods I appoligize.

 

This is a farily common misconseption for those new to Revit.  A curtain wall/store front door is not a door, it is a curtain wall panel.  You just need to tab to the curtain wall panel you would like to be a door and then select which door you would like it to be.

I cant upload the file, its over 2 mb. here are some images of what im working with.

u can see how i approached the door issue on the concrete wall (vs curtain wall that i am trying to do now)

 

I followed the autodesk student expert tutorials and made a pattern curtain wall by

making a form out of lines

then dividing the form's surface along vertical or v grid

drew lines and used intersects for u grid

applied curtain panel as pattern 

 

for creating the openings for door only way i could think of was void form so i went back and deleted  pattern and made the void openings but now cant get panels to fit... PLEASE HELP

Please read this in your HELP :> Adding Doors to Curtain Walls

 

A door can never be hosted in a void....

I think that since its a pattern curtain wall, there is no option for doors when i select a panel, only other panels such as solid or glazed. Not sure how to post the file since its 5000kb

If you are expecting to put a door in a sloping curtain wall or in a panel with sloping side mullions, you can't really build it so you probably can't model it unless you build something in -place.  However, a curtain wall door does work in a curtain system placed on a mass by face.
