    Capless Curtain Wall Mullion Joins

    Hey everyone,

    I'm currently trying to make a capless curtain wall. I've no issues creating the profiles and getting the general appearance correct but I'm not quite sure how to approach the joining of the mullions. To make it clean up properly you'd essentially have to have a portion of the mullion overlapping the other. See images below for a reference to my problem.

    Any suggestions?

    You can't using a single curtain wall. Do do this with curtain wall you'd need multiple walls with multiple profiles and you'd have to keep everything aligned manually.

      Thank you for the reply; however, I was afraid of that answer...

      Unfortunately I need to keep the complexity of this fairly simple. You're not aware of any other workarounds perhaps?

        There isn't another workaround that uses regular mullions. I just leave them like that, honestly. No one is going to build it wrong because of that. Hehe.

          actually, the screen shot posted by the OP represents exactly how a four sided SSG glazed curtain wall is fabricated. The horizontals do not get notched around the face of the intermediate verticals to aesthetically close the gap. In real curtain wall life the gaps are closed with compressible silicone compatible joint plugs and I don't bother to model this small inconsequential detail so my SSG curtain walls in elevation and in 3D look just like the OPs. Nobody has rejected my drawings or not paid me because of it yet
          I'm retired, if you don't like it, go around!
