    Curtain Wall - customised curvy mullion

    Hi. I'd like to know if it's possible to customize the curtain mullions to be something similar to S shape profile in section. I have some window grilles (very long stretch) which need this. I have a railing family of it. But it cannot be embedded in wall, so i ended with a bottom wall and top wall.
    Thanks in advance.

    curtain wall mullions can be created in any shape you like as long as the profiles are closed regions. The issue would be, how would this S shaped mullion deal with intersections with perpendicular sections? Can you post a screen shot of what you are trying to achieve?

    not S-shape exactly...but this is what I want as a curtainwall, I only have it in railing family, it's not able to embed in a wall and cut away the wall.

    If your dedicated to using curtainwall, I would create those balusters as a curtain panel, you won't get millions to sweep like that.
    Imho you're going to hit more roadblocks doing this with curtain walls than railings.
    Any reason you can't stick with railings as that is obviously what it is?
