Hi - We're thinking through the various ways to model tilt-up precast panels. The panels will have horizontal reveals, and vertical reveals within the panel and at the edges. We play a lot with reveal patterns, and mixing panel types so flexibility and changes are key. I haven't yet hit on a really good solution to manage the vertical reveals.... But I've thought through a couple of different ways, and would appreciate any suggestions on how other folks are modeling.

1 - Curtainwall - Populate the grid with a wall family defined with the horizontal reveals. Vertical reveals seem to be more of an issue here, as they need to be placed individually on each panel, and if the grid changes from say 8' to 6' all the reveals need to be moved or recreated. The array command doesn't seem to work across the panels. Anyone know a way to make a mullion act like a void reveal???

2 - Basic Wall - this seems to be an ok solution if all the panels for a good extent of the elevation have the same horizontal reveal. Vertical reveals can be arrayed to fake the joint between the panel, and the vertical reveal at the edge of the panel. Arrays seem a little fussy to edit, but at least allow a quick change in joint spacing. However, once a couple of types of panels are in the mix, this seems like it could be cumbersome.

3 - Create a model group for each panel type - Conceptually this seems to resonate with the way we think about the panel layout - each panel is an object, change one of a type and they all change. The exterior wall is then a series of walls. The downside - if the width of the panel changes, one has to shuffle around the panels.

Thanks!

Look at my earlier post in 2008 - It shows what I think you want.  The sweep profile has to be larger than the wall to cut it all the way through.
