    Curtain Wall Mullion Orientation

    I am working on a faceted tower in which large expanses of panels will be following specific planes. I would like the outside face of the mullion to be parallel with the plane and the other three sides of the mullion to be parallel with the floor. It seems as though I can do one or the other but not both by manipulating the orient to host or orient to global z parameters. I have attached the family with nested mullion family. I expect the facet angles to change throughout the process so would prefer if this was automatic, based on host, rather than providing an angle input parameter to manually set it.
    Best,
    Steve

    Is this the idea?

    Almost. Rotate the curtain wall 90 clockwise.

    I think that the OP is looking for a mullion that has an exterior face that follows the plane of a near vertical glazed panel but the inside face follows the plane of the FACE of slab. So, you're illustration is correct if rotated 90 degrees clockwise. It would be an interesting exercise to have a mullion that could do this but that would be parametric to handle any face of glazed panel to face of slab angle variances.

    That's it precisely. We have both conditions.
