Hello!

I am looking for suggestions on the best way to create a wall type with integrated wainscot panel. My wall has a 4" rubber base sweep, a panel sweep and the chair rail sweep; I need to show the breaks in the panels and as you cannot apparently use a vertical reveal in the wall-type I'm looking for ideas on the best way to model this.

The panels are typically 4' wide, however sometimes the panels are smaller depending on the length of the wall. Currently I am showing the panels by drawing detail lines where the reveals would be which is fine for the elevations, but when I work in 3D to show the client, the panels obviously don't show.

I did try a vertical wall reveal, however despite having the wall sweeps set to cuttable, the reveal does not cut through the panel or rail sweep.

Would love suggestions on the best approach for this.

Thanks!

I would use a face based family with a flexible width.

Is that fairly easy to create and setup? If I wanted the architect to create the family, what parameters do I need to give him in order to make it?

Use a face based template.

It will be an extrusion with an instance based parameter to control the width.  Another if you need to control the hieght as well.  Height should probably be a type based as it would not change as often.  The material would be another parameter.
