When you design a curtain wall in Revit Architecture, you can be working with a default or manually customized grid. This grid then houses mullions and panels, which could be doors or windows. Using a curtain wall gives you more design flexibility, although it may also mean you need to slightly rethink your approach. Watch this video to learn more about adding curtain grids, mullions, and panels in Revit Architecture 2015
…In this movie, we're going to look at manually created curtain walls.…In the previous movie, we looked at the curtain wall object, and we…saw how it was a series of grids and mullions in a pattern.…And those were driven by the type.…Here, we're going to look at how we can layout the grid pattern manually, so…that we can have a little bit more freedom and flexibility with the design.…So I'm in a file called Grids and Mullions,…and I'm going to zoom in here on the front entry.…And, you can see I just have a blank wall here.…So I'm going to go to my Wall tool, open up my type selector, and…make sure that I'm choosing the Curtain Wall Type from the Curtain Wall Family.…
So they both say curtain wall.…And this is the most generic curtain wall, it…doesn't have any mullions or grids in it whatsoever.…Now like we did in the previous movie, I'm going to…highlight the exterior wall here and click my first point.…Now, I'm at about one foot off the corner and…it's kind of important that you back up off the corner…a little bit here, because if you get too close…

Q: Which versions of Revit should I use with this course?
A: This course is written for users of Revit Architecture 2015 and Revit LT 2015. Because Revit LT does not have all of the same features as Revit Architecture, some movies in this course will not be relevant for Revit LT. Additionally, there are some topics that are relevant in both versions, but the button layout or location of those tools are different. In those cases, the features and procedures for Revit Architecture are shown in the course.
