I have a small issue I'm grappling with.

I have a curtain wall which uses a normal wall style as an infill panel (yes I know, it's not ideal, but sometimes necessary). My problem is that even if the curtain wall is set to disallow join, the 'wall as curtain panel' still joins to the adjacent normal walls (which I do not want as its throwing my wall joins out). The 'wall as curtain panel' does not display any end points to enable me to right click and disallow joins.

 

Anyone have any experiecne with this?

This may not be the best answer but if you place your curtainwall in a design option, it will not join with your main model walls.

 

Just retested this and the results are not always predictable.

For reference, I didn't find a way to do exactly what I wanted, but I resolved it by adding another curtain wall gridline 2mm from end, and changing thew last panel to a standard solid, this stopped the wall joins happening. Not perfect, but worked. 

 

Guess I ought to look for a few more unitised curtain wall panel families, but there just don't seem to be many good ones around, and I don't have time to build them. 

 

Anyone got any tips for converting a normal window or door family to a curtain wall panel without just rebuilding the whole thing? ... I realise this is not just a straightforward thing to do.

Why would you do what you ask?  You already have curtain wall doors that can easily be modified and there are operable windows on Autodesk Seek that work in curtain wall systems.
