I have several storefront curtainwalls. The default Storefront places horizonal mullions at 8 FT centers vertically. So, a 10 FT high storefront will have one horizontal mullion at 8 FT. I unlocked the grid for those mullions and changed the dimension to 3 FT which moves the mullion down. One of the storefronts allowed me to re-pin the grid after moving it. But only one. The pin does not show up on the other segments when I select the mullion gridline. Why?
Second question - Is there a way to creat a storefront style that already has a single horizontal mullion at 3 FT?
Solved! Go to Solution.
Hello - You can select each grid line and pin it from the modify tab, modify panel, pin... or PN for a keyboard shortcut.
As for the second question see image attached... You can preset the offset to get the 4' offset before you place the wall.
Thanks for the reply. I had already tried your suggestion; however, the horizontal mullion is placed every 4 FT vertically. I only want one horizontal mullion above the floor, not an array of them.
I see what you are saying - when I do a fixed number and put 1 - it gives me 2.
I can find no way around this other then deleting the 2nd one - which you are probably already doing.
Sorry I was not of more assistance
Now if there was a way to set the top of the storefront as the baseline for the horizontal mullion spacing, I could make it work - 10FT high storefront with mullion spacing vertically at 7 FT would give me one mulliion 3 FT above FF.
Well you can - set the justification to end. But it still puts 2 in - not one.
I have to admit that is really annoying.
I don't think it can be done with just type properties, only by combining type properties + instance properties:
Yeah, there is no way to create a Storefront type that places the mullion where I want it because the Horizontal Grid Pattern justification is per instance and is not a parameter of the type. Too bad.
Well, actually, it is a little easier. Once I modify the parameters of a storefront segment before I place it, that becomes the default setting for the subsequent instances created. So, I just have to get it right the first time. Selecting multiple items in Revit can be tedious and it is also difficult to see if the multiple items are actually selected. By getting it right the first instance, I dont have to spend time squinting so much.
