I’ve recently been experimenting with some various “alternative” uses for Revit elements. One of these is Curtain Wall Mullions.
Using the Empty Curtain Wall type with Empty Panels, lets you make the Mullions form the basis for your curtain wall or sloped glazing roof.

This can even be incorporated into my previous Slope Glazed Curtain Ceiling:
