Can a curtain wall with a custom curtain wall panel part of the type be allowed to attach to a slooped roof? As far as I can tell it cannot. Does anyone know a way around this or know otherwise?

Thanks

I've seen some other posts on this but I think I need to understand the concept here. Default curtain wall can attach to slope roofs, floors, etc. However, these are built with in-place extrusions by default (kind of cheating aren't we autodesk?). When any other type of curtain panel is applied to the system, custom or default, it fails to attach to any sloped planes reporting an error, "Can't Create Type." Obviously, I would like to avoid creating an absurd amount of extrusions per length of wall to have a sloped surface. Attaching to a sloped plane is very basic, so hopefully I'm missing something here in the software to deal with this. For the project I'm working on I'm in v2012. Any help is appreciated. Thanks.

So the answer is no. In my opinion this is an oversight for the function of these elements in the software. I don't see a reason why there could not be a parametric setup for curtain panels to be treated like system panels so that they can attach to floors/roofs, etc. Wish list for release 2030? The best solution that I found was to create another in-place generic model family to frame out an area to cut the geometry. Happy Reviting.
