    Unhappy countable data for panels

    Good morning everybody!
    I have a weird question again!

    I have been asked to calculate splice mesh, U mesh and L mesh for curtain wall joints openings and what is the most interesting at each panel stitches.

    Now, I wonder if there is any countable data which I can attach either to my curtain wall or curtain panel family or maybe door/window family (for the openings part) to calculate some 3-5 types of perimeters when they are there.

    ok, I will reply to myslef
    but, I will need more advanced advice from you frineds.

    actually what I want to do is to adopt Revit to pre-cast wall industry, as some of you may have noticed from my recent threads.
    Well I've gone through the custom panel issue, and now I have few types of curtain walls with few types of curtain panels which represent actuall 3d panels that we produce.
    Now, I needed to have calculated values (count and/or perimeter/length) of splice meshes-for panel-topanel joints, L meshes - for L corner Joints and T joints and also, U meshes - for ends of walls as well as for door window openings (in case of curtain walls it complicated).
    To accomplish this I created custom dummy profile Mullions with approx shape of the above mentioned mesh forms (dummy because the shape is not very important - the actual goal is to calculate the quantity/length) - then I tried applying these mullions to my panel walls.

    Overall the idea seems very close to what I want to accomplish, but I'm seeking some more experienced advice from you on how could I possibly confuse Revit to put U type mullion in all my window or door openings, and leave the top and bottom borders of the wall mullionless even if there is a door opening put only top and side mullions. I know that there are some weirdly parametric things to do but I don't know where to do and how to do
