Hi all,

I'm in my 5th week learning Revit and trying to accomplish something that I think might be out of my league at the moment. What I'm attempting to do is apply a sweep to a wall comprised of a series of vertical wooden slats. I was not able to locate any walkthroughs that specifically talked about broken up sweeps or BIM files on the Trespa website. I attached an image of what I'm trying to do in my project. I have more questions, but I think once I figure out how to accomplish this, I can move on from there.

Thanks

You could look at doing a curtain wall and using the mullions as your timber members, from the photo I can see there is nothing behind the battens.

use the curtain wall and empty panels...

let us know if you get stuck.

Other alternatives to consider are using vertical and horizontal sweeps with the vertical members having an offset (image 1) and creating it with a railing with different spacings for the balusters - use a longer sequence to avoid it being to repetitive Cryingimage 2).  I created two slightly different timber colours to get the variation, but you could use more colours for this.

That's definitely a step in the right direction. I just need to make sure that I can vary the height and size of these panels as they do not span floor to parapet and there will be several height changes along the perimeter of the building. Thanks for the ideas! I'll upload some images when I have some time.

Ok, so I've taken it in a slightly different direction.  I'm making a parametric family where I will have full control over the number of panels, spacing, and distance from the wall and floor. The only parameter not working is the height. Any ideas?

The parametric system was giving me headaches. The curtain system will work just fine I think. Thanks a lot!
