Hi all,

I am trying to create a composite cladding system with repetitive geometric pattern, (i will add the picture of desired look). the problem i have is i don't know how to design this in revit! i think if i used a curtain wall family and added parameters i could make this desired look, but i dont understand how to do this. can anyone help as this is for a project i have at university. P.s i am using revit architecture 2012 and live in the UK.

 

thanks

Callum

You CAN'T do this with a curtain wall.

 

This appears to be a repetition of about 11 panels (can be solid or glazed).  I think 11 + edge families will work.

You could model that object as a curtain panel family, and then apply that panel to a curtain wall. This curtain wall element has two rows and two columns of the panel, put together:

Alf,

You can pretty much put any panel in a CW but what is the difference between doing what you did and just using a family?  I think using a CW is non-productive, actually harder to do.

A curtain panel is a family, too. Since the panel is something that is made to be repeated, the curtain wall simply facilitates the repetition. It's easier than making arrays. And, since this is the facade of a building, it makes more sense to do it as a curtain wall because that would be the appropriate category for this object.

And the corners, top, bottom are handled how?

 

I understand the repetition but I don't see the flexibility.

You can go in and out of the reference planes of the curtain wall panel family, not only in x, and, y, but also in z.  Remember the other thread about the perforated panels and the "x"?

In case of the panel in this thread, the top and bottom are made as in this simplified scheme: the same portion that goes "out" above the upper reference planes, comes "in" above the lower reference plane. Something similar could be made from left to right.

Alf, 

I have tried to replicate the panels you have drawn in your post (Feb 26th). I created an adaptive component for each quadrilaterial but when I try to bring that into a curtain panel family it doesn't allow me to do it. Is the file downloadable of the panels you have created?

 

Many thanks,

 

Janina

Adaptive families cannot be loaded into generic model families. Only the other way around. The previous posts in this thread don't mention anything about adaptive families being used for this. It's a curtain panel family (generic) applied to a curtain wall.

About the other question, I don't think so. This was posted about 2 years ago.
