    Butt-glazed corners

    What's the best way to model a mullion-less curtain wall corner? Where I have two pieces of glass that are butt-glazed?

    You can swap in a custom wall type or create a small mullion to fill in the gap.

    We use seperate families for all of the Curtain Wall conditions, since the corner mullions in revit leave much to be desired. So we disallow join, delete the corner and end mullions, place the families, and drag the handles to the correct spot. We have a corner with snap cap, a chevron, a canted piece, an inner corner, etc, and they have parameters similar to the ones in our mullion profiles, so people dont get conufsed when editing the sizes.

    I use a column family that is the shape of the mullion I want at the corner. I put the geometery on a sub-category so I can control its lineweight diff. from other columns. I typically use a modified panel at the corners that has an instance parameter for the overhang of the gridline so I can get it to come to a corner the way I want.
