    Question Blind Mullion/Transom in Curtain Walls

    How do you deal with blind mullions on curtain walls?
    IE. the mullion is fixed to the rear face of the curtain panel and the panel runs full length past it without the split caused by a curtain grid.

    Build the mullion into a curtain panel family? This would eliminate the 'make continuous / break at join" mullion behaviour and I want to stay with system panels for this one.
    Use a railing? Meh
    Slab edge? Meh
    Some funky nesting of curtain walls?

    Did you try making the mullion profile almost (1/32" away) touch the reference plane in the profile family?

    I'd probably just add that mullion in as a separate family.

    Superimposed second curtain wall. One for panels one for mullions

    Generic Model in a group with the curtainwall so they don't get separated. Although my curtainwalls are almost always in a group anyway.
