Hi,

 

I've created a curtain wall consisting of sliding panels 5m each (blue in attached image). When placing the wall in lengths not divisible in 5m increments the last panel is squeezed into the leftover width (red in attached image). For rendering purposes I'd rather see that the last panel is simply cutoff/cropped at the end of the wall, keeping the proportions of the panel family mullion grid.

For all my searches I haven't found the setting in either the curtain wall or panel settings to make this happen, it would be much appreciated if someone could point me in the right direction?

Best,

Erik

What do you expect Revit to do? You have to give it the right options.

Change that panel to a different one.

Thanks for the input WWHub,

 

As Revit obviously has a strategy for these situations, to squeeze the panel, I expect to have the option to chose another solution.

 The panel is tailor made and fit 95% of the instances, it would save me a lot of work to be able to decide how it behaves where it's not of optimal width.

The model is primarily meant for presentation at this stage, not expected to be used as construction reference, so if anyone has a practical solution it'd be great, thanks.

Revit's CW panels always fit grid to grid vertically and horizontally.  So if your panel size is fixed and you have a wall that doesn't match up, then you have to create a filler panel that will work.

 

Perhaps your 'optimum width' should be a range and that your curtain wall is set so that each panel is equal and will be in that range.

Ah, I took your "range" advise and used Maximum instead of Fixed grid spacing, setting the max value to allow for some marginal so in instances slightly above/below 5m-increments the panels are stretched a bit to fit. Not perfect but looks a lot better and good enough for my purposes.

Thanks! (Sincerely this time, in my last post I was sarcastic as I thought your reply was mildly snarky)
