    Circular Corner Mullion

    I have a feeling this is one of those "Nope. Not in Revit" questions, but I'll try anyway.
    We have a Chain Link Fence Curtainwall Type.
    The problem is that we can't get the corner posts to work right.
    No matter how we manipulate the Mullion, we get two of them next to each other.

    • A Circular Mullion cannot be set to Corner, and vice versa.
    • If I delete one, the remaining mullion is still set back from the intersection.
    • If I change the Offset value, it offsets perpendicular to the panel, not parallel.


    Edit: I can live with having two on top of each other. They just need to both be in the same place.
    Edit2: Yes, I've read about the "trick" to use no mullion and place a separate Generic Model.

    Any ideas, or not possible?

    Delete one, disallow the join and manipulate them to look like they join? Probably not the best solution but it gives the desired result.Click image for larger version.

    Apply the vertical mullion to one border...not both 1 and 2.

    Using only one looks . . . OK.
    But still not really what we're after.

    The reason we're being so picky about this is that this is for a Secure Environment, and we need to be able to specify and dimension exactly where the fence posts are going.

    Move the end of the curtainwall with the post up half the width of the post and the angled end back half the width and I think it would be exactly where it should be.

    Would it be possible to create a custom round mullion that will host to the edge of a CW on the center of the mullion, instead of going edge-to-edge like default?

    You could build the circular mullion into the panel itself, and configure the curtainwall not to have mullions.

    So... That IS the method to use.

    It doesn't look correct because the wall hosting the million needs to adjust, as it isn't in the correct place to terminate both of those runs equally.

    But this method works, as it's how I do it all the time.
