Flip mullion around axis/gridline

Flip mullion around axis/gridline

I would like to be able to flip mullions around their axis/gridline (on a per instance bases). For assymetric mullions (U shaped side mullions for example) we now have to make two variants and assign them manually to the correct sides. It would be more intuitive to have an option to flip the mullion around their gridline.

I agree. A simple flip parameter in the types of a curtain wall mullion would solve the problem.

I would implement this as a instance property so that that we don't have to duplicate each (asymmetrical) mullion type.

Currently, in order to create asymmetrical mullion families it is necessary to have separate, mirrored profiles for the left and right jams or the header and sill.  The properties allow for rotating a profile, but not mirroring one.  Profile families do not allow "Flip" parameters on their own, as many of the sweep based families have this option built in.  Adding an option to "Flip" the profile along its center axis would be an easy addition to the mullion properties, and would streamline this otherwise annoying redundancy and declutter the profile lists.
