    Default Round curtain wall

    What can we do to have a round curtain wall? I hope this can be done because I don't want to use windows for this!

    Not seeing what the problem is, unless you mean curved curtain wall panels ( curved glass ), in which case, that too can be done.

    What you show here is fine, I'm wondering how you sketch this, each panel as a line? I selected the solid wall and tried to change the family to curtain wall but all I got is a straight line. So, I guess you sketch the wall as a polygon, right?

    Just select Curtain Wall ( Storefront is good ) as the wall type from scratch and sketch a circle from center - radius.
    You can also apply a curtain wall by face to a cylindrical mass.

    Thank you!
    Anyway it is one of the very few cases in Revit that changing the family won't work.

    You might have the Cutain Wall 1 type, this one contain only one panel. So it might show as a straight line, Go in the Modelling menu, select Curtain Grid. Add a couple and you will see your line become a rounded form. The more you had the more its round but the more panel you got.

    I dont think revit will automatically make curved panels (yet).

    Here is a curved panel family that you can load in and swap out with the standard 'flat' panels. You will have to, however, change the radius of the panels to suit the radius of your curtain wall, as it is a type paramter and wont automatically be picked up by the panel.

    let me know if it works
