Hi...

 

I am working with cuirtian wall panels... and wanted to know if it's possible to create an extrusion in a separate family, and then load it into a curtain wall panel family. 

 

Basically... Currently i am creating a all the extrusions within the curtain wall panel family.  It often seems to cause problems when i load it into the project.  so i was think... if i should create the extrusions seperately and then either load them as a component within the curtain wall panel family.

 

Now which would be the ideal family to use?  bearing in mind the extrusions will then need to be locked to the top and bottom planes within the curtain wall family.

as always your support will be much appreciated.

  1. CW's with disallow join button switched on one of them. Corner vertical mullions removed)
  2. Push / pull ends of CW to achieve proper overlap (one (A) glass to mullion face of other (B) and second one (B) to backsid of other CW.
  3. add grids to each CW
  4. Remove partial horizontal mullions on the (B) one and make the glass panels empty on the other (A).
  5. Final 3D.... NOTE there will be a line on one glass face because it is a but joint.
