Good day folks!

 

I've been trying to cut curtain walls with opening placed in wall behind, with no luck.

Any tips or suggestions? :/

 

Thanks.

Nope, that will not work.  Not sure why you would want what you are doing but you will have to create an opening in the CW.

I want to make facade system with curtain wall (for example fiber cement panels)

Is there any better way to make facade like that?

A curtain wall has 'panels' in framed areas.  Is that what you want?  If so, the panels can be glass or whatever you want.

If your wall is panels that are individual and just side by side, you can use a wall.

I have a CMU wall with doors an windows in it. And facade panels on exterior side. So I need windows and doors to cut curtain wall in front of it.

Like it does when you join two normal walls (shown in my first comment)

You will have to frame an opening in the CW.....Just edit the CW sketch in elevation.

Just so you understand, in order for an opening in a wall to cut another wall placed against it, the two walls would have to be joined. 

If a CW is placed against a standard wall and the two are joined, I think the whole wall is cut and the CW would be embedded (if that is allowed by your CW settings). <<< I don't have Revit here to check that out.

Curtain walls can not host standard doors but you can have a CW panel that is a standard wall that then hosts a standrd door.
