Curved Curtain Wall

User question: How can I make glaze and mullion curved in curtain wall?


Actually, it's not very often to have an opportunity to use curved glass in real projects. It's quite expensive. But it is possible to make in real world, so it should be possible in Revit.




As known, basic system panel  or mullion can't be bend in Revit. 



And here is a solution.

Make a wall type which has glass material and a sweep for transom, then use it for curtain wall panel.


I think it's one of well known tricks, but for those who don't know yet..

Enjoy. :-)

    1. You don't have to download anything. just make a glass type wall and use it as panel of curved curtain wall type.
