Join Paul F. Aubin for an in-depth discussion in this video Adding curtain walls, part of Revit Architecture 2016 Essential Training (Imperial).
- Curtain walls are the third and most complex…form of a wall system famiy.…Curtain walls can vary in any direction…and even form complex patterns within their structure…using a series of grids, mullions, and panels.…In this movie I'll get you started with…the essentials of the Curtain Wall object…and then we'll dig a little bit deeper…into the specifics of grids,…and mullions, and panels in the next movie.…So I'm in a file here called Curtain Walls.…On the Architecture tab…we're gonna use the Wall tool again…to access the curtain wall object.…So remembering that the curtain wall object…is just another wall family,…then we actually use the Wall tool to access it,…just scroll down and you'll see…the Curtain Wall object is listed here as the family…and then the template that we started with…has three types,…Curtain Wall, Exterior Glazing, and Storefront.…
Feel free to explore each one,…but in this movie I'm just…gonna look at the Storefront design…because of the three it's the most detailed.…To start off with I'm gonna draw outside the building,…

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.
