That didn’t take long! It seems like we just rolled out Revit® 2018 and learned all of the new improvements that came with it, and now here we are just a few months later with a whole new set of great functionality added to our favorite BIM application. Revit 2018.1 features some exciting enhancements including the ability to provide user input within the Dynamo Player interface, additional library content, enhanced Rebar for Structural Engineers, and added functionality for MEP Fabrication Parts.
Curtain walls in Revit® do not have the ability to rotate grid lines at angles after the horizontal or vertical grid has manually been placed. There is a work around for this and will demonstrate how to achieve the diagonal mullion look on a gable end curtain wall.
For new Revit® users and even seasoned experts that have been using the software for a while, I like to point out excellent and underused features of the software that you forgot about or might have missed. One of the hardest things to do while working with Revit Curtain Walls can be selecting the exact mullions you need to modify. When I first started working with the software I would resort to doing a window selection, then filtering out objects I did not mean to select. With Revit Curtain Walls, it was almost a guarantee that you would at least select the curtain grid and some other miscellaneous items that no doubt needed to be filtered from your selection. If you are currently using this method, here is the good news: There is actually a hidden tool specifically designed to help while working with mullions.
