So I was wondering how others would go about creating an  exterior cement fiber board panel system that I could change the panels easily. The make up of the wall is as follows 5 1/2" wood stud w/ 3/8 plywood, 1 1/4" hat channel, 1 1/4 metal "z" channel, 5/16" cement fiber board panel.

 

I am thinking of creating the wall minus the 5/16" CMF then adding that on later using a curtain system..... thoughts?

not a bad idea, but do you think using surface pattern will be better?

NO, that's not what I was thinking, in this case I think I use the wall you post "5 1/2" wood stud w/ 3/8 plywood, 1 1/4" hat channel, 1 1/4 metal "z" channel, 5/16" cement fiber board panel.", split the wall where i want, create the "Reveals" with that "Void Profile" then use the "Paint" tool with the different color/material i want, I thought you are talking about other thing....

we started running into problems with the walls being split too many times. It would be nice if creating the reveals with the voids would create individual faces instead of still reading it as one. I am experimenting with the curtain system using a few different panel families. I'll post images of the end result with a quick video

Curtain Wall certainly is a good option, just because you want to get those panels in different colour. If not, I think I will use wall reveal or Create a Face Based Family for the cut to archive the pattern.

If you choose to use Curtain Wall approach, I suggest you consider using Wall within Curtain Wall or Curtain Wall within Curtain Wall if you like. My suggestion is based on the concern of the amount of Curtain Grids.

my biggest problem with the face based voids was dimensioning them, Revit does not recognize the inner faces of the reveal for your dimension string.

I don't think the reveal system works very well because you can't schedule the pannels to get numbers, sizes, thickness and colors. Solution needs to be flexible enough for different projects with different layout patterns, colors and panel type.

We are experimenting with using a Curtain wall system but don't have a good solution to share yet.
