Hello everyone!

 Im trying to create an aluminum panel wall.  So far i used a curtain wall, i replaced the glass panels with aluminum ones and it looks almost like i want it to.  I then removed the mullions.  In 3D view...the wall looks almost perfect since it displays the curtain wall grid and it gives me those nice division lines in between the panels.  When i render though....the grid disappears and my wall looks like one huge aluminum panel. 

I'm having trouble finding any info on this on the net.  From what i've found im on the right track but not there yet.  My question is...is there anyway to give my grid an actual physical spacing? or do i have to create some sort of ''invisible'' mullion to have the spacing look i want? Any info or tips on these sorta walls would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

I think I would have used simple walls and placed horizontal and vertical reveals instead but, using your method, your panels need to be defined with an edge or will a very narrow mullion work?

The reveal was indeed the better method.  It looks great.

Thanks for the reply!
