Join Paul F. Aubin for an in-depth discussion in this video Designing with curtain wall types, part of Advanced Modeling in Revit Architecture.
Curtain walls come in a few varieties in Revit.…We have curtain walls, curtain systems,…sloped glazing, and of course our panelized divided surfaces.…In the earlier chapters, we spent a lot of time covering examples of…the panelized systems.…We also created some placeholder curtain system elements directly from the…faces of our mass model.…In this chapter, we will refine the placeholder elements a bit more and explore…some of the features of the standard curtain wall and sloped glazing elements.…In this movie, I'm going to start with the entrances to our building and to the…outdoor sculpture gallery.…
So what I have here onscreen is the final version of the project file for…this chapter called Ch07 (Finish), and I just wanted to show you what the end…result will look like.…Now I'm in Temporary Hide/Isolate mode because I have the entrance canopy turned…off, so that you can see that all I'm doing here is adding a few revolving doors…to the main entrance and refining the design of the curtain wall a little bit.…
