    Problem with curtain wall

    I'm really new in revit.I try to make curtain wall with this my family. When i use in project revit replace last panel with system panel. Then I tried to make a simple curtain panel. Var1 - I locked the outer lines to the main reference planes. I noticed that last panel from curtain wall been scaled and if revit couldn't scale revit replace with default panel. Var 2 - I tried to create reference planes and locked all lines to them. Then my last panel is out of set length. Thanks before!

    You need to provide more reference planes and constraints to define your expectations. If you edit your extrusion's sketch and turn on Automatic Sketch Dimensions you'll see how Revit is guessing, trying to constrain the shape you've drawn. Imagine a shop drawing telling someone how to define the depth, width and location of each corner and the width of the material you're using.

    A curtain wall panel has to be able to flex to fill the space between grids. Your family has to know how to maintain its form regardless of the overall width or height of the panel defined between the grids.
