Hi

I would like to create inclined glass façade with 3D mullions through Revit API (inclined curtain wall).

I create NewSweptBlendForm(void, path, profiles) in Metric Mass.rtf as conceptual design for the façade. It is OK with inclining when the top profile has different X- and Y-Coor than the bottom profile.

I can also create DivideSurface(document, form) and make U and V grid lines on the faces the SweptBlend, but it is just the 2D lines. I can manually – in Revit – create form on a surface of the SweptBlend, given it a thickness (offset) and material, but there are too many surfaces surrounding the building!

Can I assign curtain wall with thickness, material and 3D mullions on the faces of the SweptBlend, by the API?

Thank you

Just draw your curtain wall straight then click on it and edit profile and change the slopes of the top and bottom to whatever you want.  Then you can create your mullion profile and add sweeps for the mullions.  Unless I am missing something.  A picture of what you are trying to accomplish always helps

Hi Teafoe5,

 

Thank you :o)

 

The 9 steps in the attached figure shows that we can create glass material and grid on a inclined

surface of a SweptBlend. But it is done on a family template file "Metric Mass.rft",

or "M_Rectangle-Blended.rfa"

 

A.

I prefer Curtain wall "Storefront" type with "3D" mullions, not just 2D line grid.

But it can only be done in project.rvt.

And I am not sure how to make a curtain wall inclining by click.

 

B.

The best is we know how to program it the API (Application Programming Interface),

so it can be done for all surfaces, at all levels, at once.

But it is good to know how to click first.

I am very interest to read your experience :o)
