Mullion Profile and behavior with Curtain Wall Panel

Good night every body,

after 4month i think it’s the time i should write again,

I think many of us had some difficulty according to Mullion Profile and Curtain Panel.

Let’s see what is the problem, take a look to the below picture, as you see we have profile with more than one slot.

Mullion

 

According to that profile we need to provide curtain Panel with two solid panel like below picture, distance between two panel is around 20 mm.

 

 

Now if we make upload this two family inside of the project and make curtain wall and mullion according to that we will receive resault like the below picture.

Ok, how we can solve this problem? we have two method:

  1. For solving this method we should add one parameter in Curtain Wall Panel, like below picture.

 

With this method every time according to different profile with different depth we should make adjust “Slot Depth” parameter for our Curtain Wall. And this is boring.

Then first problem is Manual Adjustment and also we have another problem, if we have different Profile for horizontal and vertical with different Slot Depth, we should add parameter like Slot Depth Vertical and Horizontal for Curtain Wall Panel.

Method 2:

for Method 2 we can do all of things automatically and we don’t need manual adjustment.

Lets see.

Important things is, we should understand why Revit is making model for Curtain Panel until to certain location, like below picture.

If you take a look to below picture you can see we have two Reference Plane as Origin Reference Plane.

 

Both of them are sensor for define limits of Curtain Wall Panel Modeling. That means is the first line has intersect with Front/Back Reference Plane are that two line in the above picture and because they have intersect with Front/Back reference plane Revit is making decision about Limits of Curtain Panel until to this two Line.

Lets change the Profile and see what is happening.

As you can see in below picture i tried to add new lines like the below picture and this time Front/Back Reference Plane is Sensing different limit line.

 

Let’s make upload this profile inside to the Project and watch the result .

Ok, i think until know you understood what we should do.

Just make change Front/Back reference Plane like below picture, and add parameter according to that .

Select Front/Back Reference line and make turn off define origin.

Create new reference plane and make Define origin for this.

 

Add one parameter ” Offset From Origin” and make setup according to the line of Slot. make upload your profile inside project.

You will receive result like below picture.

Go for Edit Mullion and say -30mm for offset.

Now you can try for any slot Depth and you can see everything could be ok.

 

Also you can change the value for “Offset From Origin” parameter to more than half of Profile Width and this will give you gap with zero distance.

 

ok, Good luck

I’m happy after long time i wrote something.
