Nice post over at Enjoy Revit, showing how you can use an adaptive component to model Roof Tiles on a cone shaped roof.

HyunWoo Kim describes how to make a Curtain Wall that has actual curved glass panels (uncommon, but possible) by making a Curtain Wall type with a Basic Wall as the Curtain Panel masquerading as Curved Glass. He adds Wall Sweeps to the Basic Wall type to “pretend” to be Curtain Wall Mullions.
I have used a similar method to make curved Balustrades / Railings (making a Rail Type that is actually the glass panel and apply Glass material to it).

HyunWoo Kim has been posting some very interesting stuff over the last couple to his English-language blog, Enjoy Revit. The content of his blog is quite interesting to me – including adaptive component rigs, solving documentation problems, and dealing with family and content creation issues.
Workaround to enable the “Show Only if Instance is Cut” option for Symbolic lines
(ie. switch to Structural Framing and back again)
He is quite prolific on Youtube too – his channel (in English) is:
