VIA Panels in Revit

Report
V.I.A.
Modeling Guide
For Revit Families
basics
•
V.I.A. Panels utilize The Curtain Wall tools of Revit
•
The panels are defined as Curtain Panel Families
•
Intention of the families is to create layouts at once with nested
families instead of arranging frames, junctions and skins individually.
•
Only a small set of rules (sizes, constraints) are integrated
V.I.A Panels in Revit l Step 1
•
Use the
Wall tool and add a Curtain Wall familiy. Note that the
V.I.A. overview project contains additional curtain wall types with
preset grid divisions
If required, flip the
curtain wall. This
symbol should be
located at the
interior side .
V.I.A Panels in Revit l Step 2
•
Use the
Curtain Grid tool and add horizontal and vertical grid lines
to the curtain wall.
For Utility Panels defined as
curtain panels,
create a grid distance of 4.06.

•
TAB-click and change a System Panel to a V.I.A. panel type in the
Type Selector.

•
Solid panels can have different skin arrangements for the interior and
exterior side
Check „Ceiling Track“ for top panels
Check „Floor Track“ for bottom panels
Uncheck both properties for intermediate panels
V.I.A Panels in Revit l Step 6
•
Assign the junctions for each side of the curtain wall
•
Set the Curtain Wall Height property, if the junction spans over the
curtain grid dimensions
V.I.A Panels in Revit l Step 7
•
Alternatively, you can use the Furniture Systems family „Steelcase
V.I.A. - Junctions – Junction.rfa“ to place the junctions individually.
V.I.A Panels in Revit l Step 8
•
Continue the next run with a curtain wall
•
Use the
Align Tool to connect the curtain wall in plan view to the
existing wall. Use the Alignment Helper Lines to align.
•
You can switch of the Alignment Helper in The Properties for indiviual
panels or under Object Styles/Furniture category

•
Continue to define the skins as described in step 5

Note the Mini End Extension property for Small, Medium and Large
