I'm trying to draw a curtain wall in Revit 2016 with splayed mullions so  the wall appears curved but it actually is straight glass segments with the mullions being splayed to create the "curve".  Does anyone know if any such animal exists, or how I cna create it?  I also need a curtain wall system that inserts a square mullion when I turn a 90 degree corner.  Currently, the one I am using puts in 2 rectangular mullions that overlap each other.

Thanks.

What do you mean by splayed?

 

A CW mullion is placed centered on a CW grid which is always perpindicular to a curved CW - just like they would install a normal rectangular mullion in a curved CW in the field.

Kawneer makes a mullion which is trapezoidal, or splayed to accommodate the curvature of the curtain wall.  I can use the standard rectangular mullion, but I'm still looking for a way to insert or create the square mullion at the 90 degree corners.

I'm lost.... So the Kawneer muillon you have works?

So why can't you use a rectangular mullion in the corner?

You don't have to use the same mullions throughout your CW.  I encourage people to only use full 'preset' CW types for intitial placement then alter that to a CW that has no 'preset' conditions so they can change any element.
