Hi all,

I'm struggling with getting a curtain wall panel to follow the profile of the curtain wall, just like a system panel does. Is this possible?

If not how do i go about matching those panels to the other rectangular panels within the curtain wall.

 

Is there an easy way of doing it using pattern based, or would I have to create the whole wall pattern per face?

 I really don't want to have to do them as in-place models

Thanks in advance for any advice.

I really don't understand your question.  What curtain wall panel are you talking about and what do you mean by profile?

KK I've attached 1 part of the building I'm doing,

I want to be able to insert similar panels to the rectangular ones in the triangular sections to follow the profile of the wall. To replace the system panels that are already there.

 

I could create a new mullion profile but as we all know mullions don't miter very well to create the setback look as per the rest of the curtain wall.

How would you do what I need?

I wish you had just added an image.  I don't have 12 on the machine I am using today so I can not answer your question.

This is a fairly common style in alot of buildings so I'm sure there is a really simple method I'm missing.

I would like to know if there is a way of doing more shapely profiles too.

I thought this might be your problem.  You need to think about this.  A simple panel can adapt to any shape but how can an intricate one?  Maybe your x direction is simple but not the y.  Which one holds and which one doesn't.  You just can't give Revit enough rules to do this.  So you need in-place or special families for these odd (not rectangular) shapes.

 

I suggest one in-place family that does all the triangles at once.

Fair does, I was hoping for a way they could have stayed as part of the curtain wall, but I had a feeling that would be the reply I got lol. is there a way to delete the system panel? I've done a work around of applying a material with a pure black cut out to it at the moment, but I'd prefer a more permanent method?

You use an empty system panel
