I have a wall type with horizontal reveals for the metal panels; I need to add the vertical reveals.  My problem is that the panels are a running bond type pattern so I need to skip every other panel with the reveal.  Is there a way to just run a reveal from one horizontal reveal to the next or to split a reveal so I can take out the sections I don't need?  Some of the reveals even run through opens in the wall to complicate things further.  All I am trying to do is panelize my wall.

Click on the reveal and stretch the blue dots to where you want them.  You can copy them down and up.

Is only allowing me to copy east to west, not north and south.  I have tried that but it doesn't seem to fully resolve the issue, and when copying east to west the copied version ends returning to the overall lenght not just a single panel.  Array has seemed to help a bit but not sure that is fully solving the problem either.

Do you mean east -west (left right) / north south (up down) ?

 

You need to play with these awhile to understand them.  You can place horizontal or vertical reveals/sweeps in the same line or copy to the same location then adjust the ends seperately but you can't copy up.

 

For what you are doing, it is easier to copy complete verticales side by side then adjust the ends vertically to get all the sections you will need in one location - side by side.  Then align these to get one vertical pattern and copy these to other locations.

I could do it by copying east to west, stretching it down south and using the align tool to move it back east.  However, I would suggest a different approach to this, using a curtain wall system for the panels, or creating a face based family panel to place onto the wall.

I think the panel family would not be easy to work with.  But you could do a single, in-place void family (wall category) for each facade that would have both the vertical and horizontal reveals.  This would be easy to work with and modify.

Placing and changing the end points works just fine, but then when I move that changed reveal from that location and under windows it changes my edit and extends the reveal the full length of the wall.  Same when I array it also. That places reveals between the window openings that I can not delete or do away with.  Is their a way to delet sections of the reveal or slice it?

You can't break a reveal and it is one element end to end.  However doors and windows should cut it.

 

Horizontal and vertical reveals work the same way.  If you don't want a reveal on both sides of an opening, you need to drag the end of the reveal back to the one side of the opening.

I would agree with WWHub about using an in-place family void to do this. Whenever I can't get the normal tools to behave properly I fall back to the workaround of using in-place families and often times they give you more control than the tools. They just don't behave "smartly" by moving with walls etc. But sometimes that's a good thing.
