Join Paul F. Aubin for an in-depth discussion in this video Adding curtain grids, mullions, and panels, part of Revit Architecture 2016 Essential Training (Imperial).
- In this movie, we're gonna 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 gonna look at how we can…lay out 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 gonna zoom in here on the front entry,…and you can see I just have a blank wall here.…So I'm gonna 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 gonna…highlight the exterior wall here and click my first point.…Now I'm at about 1 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 to close to the corner…

Paul also shows advanced techniques for modeling stairs, complex walls, and partially obscured building elements, as well as adding rooms and solid geometry. Finally, discover how to annotate your drawing so all the components are perfectly understood, and learn how to output sheets to DWF, PDF, or AutoCAD.
