How can i model slidding panels on my facade, and position them *RANDOMLY* along a rail?(See exemple as Image bellow.)

 

- i want to acheive this on a CURVED facade...

- i have about 1000 panels in total.

- panels are wood louvers, not plain & flat.

 

Thanks for hints!

i would use a model in place family, under your componet tab.  either with sweeps or extrusions. looks like you need several sizes. you can make them and just copy them where you want them accross your facade.

Thanks for your help.

The modeling isnt a big issue. But, because the project is quite big, the positioning is really a nightmare. As i said, my facade is curved.. so a manual placement of each panel is very laborious. I'll have to slightly rotate each panel on its Z axis.. and i have 8 floors.

Isnt there an equivalent to the lovely 'Path Constraint' from 3dMax?..

Cheers

not sure about the 3d max option. i kow it is a lot of work, but i would do maybe 2 or 3 different floors and then copy by level every other one or so, so that way i wouldn't have to do all 8. that's how i would do it with what i know, there may other ways, but we both may learn something from someone else if there is another way.

For sure! SmileIf anyone else have an idea .. please !..

 

We are still in a sketching process.. So i need flexibility; number of panels, shape of my curve, etc.. Thats why i am quite reluctant to start the old-school copy/paste technic Winking  

 

(double post, sorry)

Hi yoroshiku777,

Not sure is this helps, we manufacture a waterproof panel, which can be heat formed into virtually any shape, so external curved panels are easy with MultiPanel. This photo gallery, http://multipanel.com.au/features.html has some of the curved MultiPanel jobs and this video, http://multipanel.com.au/howto.html shows product features etc.

I can send more details if you need, just contact me via our website.

 

John.
