    Empty System Panel is missing (Revit 2017)

    Hello,

    In the past I have managed to create a curtain wall with Empty System Panels. This allowed me to attach the CW to a roof that was not parallel to any of the levels:

    This is the state of the Family tree in the default template for Revit 2014:

    As you can see above the Empty System Panel is available.

    I have since upgraded to Revit 2017 and now the Empty System Panel is no longer available:

    This makes my design work pretty hard and I don't know how to resolve this problem. If anyone know what's going on please help.

    cheers,

    Empty System Panel is included in all of the OOTB templates here (US Imperial templates). If you don't have one in your 2017 template can you copy/paste a curtain wall that includes an ESP from R2014 to R2017? That should get it into your R2017 template

    What is stopping you from using a regular system panel?

    I assumed that this type of panel would be available OOTB. Perhaps my installation is corrupt or missing some content. I will repair the installation and then copy from my previous project as you suggested. Thank you for your help.

    Turns out my Revit installtion was incomplete in some way and that System panel was missing from the template. I've repaired the installation and now the System Empty Panel is back! Yay! I can once again attach curtain walls to roofs with funky outlines.
