RAC 2008 - I'm trying to figure out the best way to create a perforated corrugated metal screen over a wall/curtainwall system.  It will be used as a shading device over the curtainwall system, and essentially as a rain screen over the wall portions.  Would it be best to do this as a component that is placed over the wall or as something that is part of the wall?  Any suggestions?  Thanks a lot.

You could do this either way - depends if your screen always matches yor wall.  I've done similar using a wall against a wall.  In that manner, I could edit profile the screen seperate from the walls.  Far easier to edit that than a component.


PS - Here is a TIP.  You can set up your screen using one of the built-in AccuRender materials - screen under the steel material - change your color at will.  The problem is that the material will visully be non-transparent in non-rendered views.  What I have done that works, to overcome this, is to set your non-rendered indicatoion to be a cross-hatch pattern and set it to a transparency that will let you see through it.  You have to turn off the check box to update when accurender material is selected.

I am reading what you guys did here, did you start it as a generic model created in place?  and you just let the accurender do the work, or did you punch voids through the solid.

Would a fine stainless steel wire mesh type of material act as the same thing you are looking for here?


Something like this:


Just a thought of an alternative that you may want to look at...
