Good morning all, 

 We've just started model a current project, full brick commercial building, the architect has about 3 different brick face recessess.  aka, the nominal air space is being fluctuated.  Now, I know there are many ways to do such a thing, but is there a best practice?  Using curtain walls with various profiles and "cuts".  Stacked walls? Void families?

 

For example, for the MAIN facade we're using a Jumbo brick that has a 3" air space, next to that a standard brick with a 2" air space, and under windows in that 2" area, we have standard brick with a 1" air space. 

 

Acad representation, figured an image would clear this up a bit.

Because the air spaces are different, I would probably model as sperate walls and sketch their wall profiles but that could be a pain. 

 

Another choice would be to do the whole wall as std brick, 2" air then add voids to cut face areas back to the 1" air depth and add a thin wall with the jumbo brick with a sketch wall profile.

 

Anyway you do this, it will be a problem.

Thanks for the response!

Between the time I posted and now, I have been messing around with many different styles.  The easiest way I've found, is to simply make a stacked wall 3" air space and 2" stacks (since thats the "core" of the building) and to simple add a 1" (or 2"Winking air space wall where the instance occurs, and cut the stacked wall with it.  

 

It actually turned out pretty nice, as for the windows and their situation, I haven't figured that out as of yet.
