    Default Revolving Door in Curtain Wall

    I've searched around, but haven't been able to find a solution to placing an all glass revolving door in a curtain wall ( or any revolving door for that matter). Is there something I'm missing?

    Thanks in advance!

    All I know is that a revolving door to be in a curtain wall starts to defeat the idea of a curtain wall. You will have to be creative in coming up with a solution. there are revolving doors that you can use, and maybe they have been created for a wall, and not a 3d object. But, I think you can create your own revolving door for a curtain wall (which is actually a Curtain Wall Panel), since I have seen a curved curtain wall panel.....but I have never tried to create my own panel before, and don't know if there are some issues for doing such a 3d panel....

    Good luck!!!

    Peace,

    You could try making the curtain panel where the door is to go a solid panel, ( to the width of the door required ) then convert it to a solid wall type and then place a revolving door in that wall.

    Way to go Beege, you are quite quick to think of a workaround using new 7.0 features.....sounds like it will work perfectly!!!!

    There is one posted at www.revitcity.com that is made to be inserted as a curtain wall panel. It is under 'doors' 'specialty'

    Thanks - the one at revcity wasn't working, so I created a wall type for where I wanted the revolver to go - and it went in fine.

    thanks for the help.
