Hi, I have a curtain wall and revolving doors inside it. Is it possible to make so complex curtain wall panel? I was trying to make this new family the whole day, but curtain wall rejects it. Please, give me some suggestions. Damir Crnila

How did you 'start' to make your revolving door? I would probably opened an existing curtain wall door family, did a Saveas, and modified that to see if I could get it to work. Also, there is a revolving door family available at www.rugi.org but it's wall based. But you might be able to reverse engineer that one to see how to make your curtain panel version. Ultimately, send your attempted door to Revit support, and they will help you make it work.

Make sure to set category of your family to Curtain Panels (use Settings | Family Category and Parameters dialog).

That's exactly what I did. I tried to make the same revolving door as it comes with Revit library inside panel family. Then I started deleting my door elements to see what curtain wall accepts. Almost nothing left. Problems are mostly in curved extrusions. Damir "Scott Davis" wrote in message news:40b0cb2a_1@newsprd01... > How did you 'start' to make your revolving door?
