    Cheers guys..

    I have had a look at Curtain wall mullions, and with my own corner post, feel better about window junctions now....

    Thanks for all the help.. once again.. ;-)

    Alfie, your parametric post would also be my preferred approach for windows. But for curtain walls I´d use a Corner Mullion, which can autoflex with the angles etc.

    I just create a Quad Corner Mullion the same Size & Material as the glass
    Swap it in & it should be ok

    Works a treat for Curtain Walls where the glass in at the centre
    You need workaround for Glass that is Non Centred

    well, that's why I'm a curtain wall detailer and you're a lube station detailer. Not that one's better than the other but my side needs to be careful about curtain wall corners and how they affect curtain panel sizes. Now, get back to your template and quit wasting time in RFO
    Dude, you just demoted me.

    I design the whole project from the site layout to the MEP, Architectural, Structural. Everything. Not that it's too difficult, it's just a lube center, but still. :laugh:

    Hey, Im not sure what that is, but it sounds like if they have stations for lube, Im willing to visit one..!
    I'm sure you have them on your side of the pond. It's where you get your car serviced. Oil changes, tune ups, etc. Just like a Jiffy Lube, except our buildings are way better. :thumbsup:

    Anyway, back to your original question. Maybe my way wasn't the best. I didn't think of scheduling. I'd go with Aaron and Dave's suggestions. I'll leave you guys to hash out the details. lol

    Cheers for the answers. Unfortunately, or luckiliy maybe, the jobs we work on would not allow for expensive curtain wall junctions that are made from glass. What I was thinking of, was something more like the attached. Its pretty much how the junction would be dealt with in reality.

    We have a family that forms the corners as either a Vertical "mullion" or a Canted "mullion," and it has the same depth and adjustment parameters as the Mullions, so- when setup correctly- you can drag the CW to the correct length, have the panels report correctly, and have it visually correct.

    For canted systems, obviously youre making a CS by face, so you have to split the surface of the mass depending on where the glass needs to end, but it has parameters in it to make either the glass ends vertical, or the entire system Canted.

    Its ridiculous that we have to make custom content for it, but it works.
