Hi,

I have been trying to create a double glazed curtain wall (6mm glass/20mm air gap/6mm glass) that has a very specific glass detail in front of the mullion. I need the exterior layer of glass to meet in the centre of the mullion ie. where I placed the curtain grid. See attached image.

I have created the curtain wall panel from a basic wall that has 6mm glass/20mm air gap/6mm glass as its properties. Is this the best way to go about creating this detail. I have approximately 3000sqm of glazing in this building and I'm sure this detail will change so I need to be able to manage changes in the future.   

Cheers

Hey! Actually I cant tell for sure if this is the right way, but you can try to create a double curtainwall panel where the exterior panel is connected to reference planes that lets you decide how much they will extend over the mullion. Both in the plane and section view. Then you just assign it to the curtainwall and voila (you can use one of the default mullions, offsetting it by half it's length + the glass thickness in a negative direction, surely there's a more accurate and simpler way but I'm too tired to figure it out) . It gave me a wall that i can change whenever i want. Hope I could be of some assistance!
