Curtain walls represent a special category of Revit software elements that we can use in many diverse ways. In this class we will focus on building efficient curtain wall panels, profile, and mullion family types for a variety of construction uses. You will learn how to build out a library of construction ready, manufacturer-based components for efficient detailing, documentation, and cost estimation; create flexible corrugated panels; and capitalize on adaptive components for creating rigs for complex curtain wall layout. We’ll also explore some non-traditional use cases for curtain wall elements, such as casework and railings. During class we’ll show actual project examples that demonstrate where and when to use these advanced modeling techniques in the real world.
