Hey there!

I'm trying to make one complicate facade and I need some pro help.

The whole thing is composed from different curved fins. Everything is curved in both vertical and horizontal direction. I've tried to make it from a mass, slatted with many voids, but Revit is going to explode. Finally, I've made a vertical texture in Revit and slatted the whole thing in 3ds Max. Now I have to do the same thing back in the original Revit model. Any ideas what is the best approach? Here is a picture of the idea.

P.S.: The back side of the vertical fins is flat and the front side is curved.

Thanks Smile

Is your question about how to MODEL this – or, how to graphically REPRESENT it? If the latter, you might explore a material appearance using a cutout. But you’ll need to decide on a single pattern to tile. From the look of it, there doesn’t appear to be one. If you are really thinking of modeling this façade – then I wish you the best of luck.  I can anticipate a lot of downstream problems associated with modeling it – including a big hit on performance. Lots of random curves are problematic – especially multi-planar curves.
