So I have searched and searched for a quick answer on this and after trial and erroring I figure I would turn to the community to maybe help me get out of a bind. I have two curtain walls going around a odd angled wall. They join just fine, but the wall corner refuses to cut out and finish. See attachment.

 

Is there a secret or workflow that will make this accurately shown?

 

Thanks!

Ya, unless you are getting different related threads than I am, none of them apply to my specific issue

If the curtain walls are joined, then they will fully cut the corner.  You have to then address the mullion/glass issue at this junction.

what exactly do you mean you have to clean up the glass and mullions? If I trim them to each other it does not join them? I tried it in another area as well and it still doesnt work right. see attached....

Sorry, I had not done a CW at a corner for a year or so and I forgot about this problem.  My solution was NOT to join the CW's and to run one CW to the edge of the encapsulating wall and run the other CW to the limits of this first CW.  Then I added a grid in the proper place on that first CW so that the ending mullions and panel could be deleted.  In essance the CW limits go furthur than you want it and you just don't place

 

As you can see, the problem with this process is still cleaning up the CW corner.  An easier process would be to create the opening in the wall seperate from the CW and join the CW.

Ah I see. I know that I have done this so it cleans up properly in 2013. I wonder if it has to do with the embedded sweep at the top of my wall or just plain settings ofr the curtainwall itself. If I stumble accross it Ill post the fix here =)

So has this still not been fixed in 2015? I swear this used to clean up on its own in 2013 and before. What has changed? This is really frustrating. Having to go in and do seperate wall openings to clean this up sucks.
