Using RST 2011

 

I would like to create a curtain wall with panels on both sides of the mullions.  Is this possible?  If yes, how do I do it?

 

Also, I have the option to select a wall type for a panel, but when I do this, nothing happens.  How is this supposed to function?  If I could use a wall type, this would be my preference.

 

Thanks in advance.

Matt

So I figured out how to get the panels on both sides, but now the interior mullion geometry for the panels cuts at each panel joint.  I would like the panel edges to touch, any ideas how to control this?

This question is not clear.  Obviously the panel fits between the mullions as it should.  If you have someting else, then its not a curtain wall.

I did away with mullions. 

 

it would be helpful in the end to have mullion data to extract, but... I prefer the model to work exactly like I want it to for now.  

 

So Ive begun including mullions in custom panel families, which all overlap or are recessed from the the grid lines to mesh perfectly.  Almost down to the detail level.  Customizing curtain wall families is very easy, and very powerful.  The spandrel panels in the lower right overlap that mullion on the glazing panel above -- I don't know if that's similar to what you're looking for. 

 

I haven't found that this is slowing down the project yet.  However, this is only a 30,000 sq. ft. building.  Anything more and I definitely wouldn't suggest, say, modeling the tongue and groove array on the cedar siding.
