I am trying to create a Kalwall system with using the curtain wall family.  All works out nicely with the exception that I cannot adjust the pattern location on my panels.  The curtain wall panels are created from a material that I have applied a 12”x24” surface patter (pattern type – model).  Ironically enough, I can select the surface pattern line but I cannot move it or align it like I can when the material is applied to something else (like a wall).  I have tried unpinning the curtain wall panel but that does nothing for me.  I am working in Revit 2014 Onebox.  I have attached a file containing the family. Thanks for any help.

select a panel -> unpin -> edit InPlace -> apply marerial -> align pattern -> finish... for all panels.

Or, if it's annoying, make a custom panel component family with aligned materal.

Or, make all panels separately with other curtain wall type and apply it as panel instead.

 here is a post about it.

Hope it helps.

Thanks, I did not realize you could edit a panel in place.  I checked out the link and also picked up the trick of creating elevations from assembly view (very nice).  I had seen the earlier post about curved pattern mapping through Jeffrey Pinheiro’s blog but didn’t realize you had a blog yourself (I am guessing you and the blog poster are one in the same).  I guess I have a new blog to add to my list.  Thanks again for the help.
