Hi, Can anyone suggest the best way to draw the following non uniform precast wall. In plan draw a rectangle 8m long& 250mm wide, along one of the main lengths draw a zig-zag pattern. So far so good easy you say! Now looking at the wall in elevation you will have a wall with verticle lines in it. I need to angle these verticle lines? Basically the zig zag pattern at the top of the wall is offset at the bottom so that not only does the wall angle in & out but tappersfrom top to bottom & visa versa, all non uniformly. The widths range from 300mm to about 700mm. Ontop of that the header detail of the wall steps to allow connection of the next level panel. Not an easy one I am guessing. Thanks in Advance. Danny

Can you provide a sketch? Hard to envision without a picture. Tom

It sounds as though what you are trying to accomplish can be done with a blend between the profile at the bottom of the wall and the profile at the top. You will probably have to use the Vertex Connect tool to control the precise edges. The header should be a simple void horizontal extrusion.

Please refer to PDF document attached. This is being used to build the precast moulds & drawn in autocad. The dashed lines indicate the ridge line of the zig-zag pattern. Thanks

Thank you all for your input. Solution: Goto modelling tab & select create, choose wall for family type. Selecte solid form, & blend. Thanks Edavisc for your help.
