Hello. Is there a way to create a curatin wall mullion family? Either to duplicate or from scratch?

 

Attached are some pictures of what I mean:

The new profiles I created are named "Butt Joint" & "Butt Joint Corner"

I do not want my family name to be "Rectangular Mullion" - I want to name it something else and list my profiles under that family ONLY.

How do I do that?

 

I am using Revit 2015.

I looked at those, unless I am missing something - that does not tell me how to do what I am asking.

If you don't see it there then that should tell you something - right?

 

Revit has some system level families that can't be deleted but you can add types.  Walls, roofs, floors, ceilings, curtain wall mullions are all system level families.  You can add types but not families.  The possible system level mullions that you can add types to are in the image attached. 

 

 

Mullions are special and work in special ways.  That is why you have to define how they are used by picking the correct family to add the type to.  If you look at the properties for each mullion family, you will see that they have different properties to drive their types.

Thank you. That is what I thought but hoped I was wrong.
