Wall Styles questions/help
« on: August 01, 2008, 08:53:24 AM »
I'm working on a model/rendering and I need to show as much detail as possible (it started off being "Here's you building, here's the site.  This is what they look like together").  And so part of the exterior of the building's parking garage has a repeating pattern of "brick, some decorative square thingy, more brick" (see attached pic).  What I've done so far was to create the walls using a generic wall style, and for the brick I simply put a 0.25" thick brick wall next to the other wall.  The decorative square thingy is a 0.25" thick solid.  Now the catch is this: The height and length of the brick will vary in some spots.  So, is what I'm currently doing the right way to go about this?  Or can I create a style that allows for variable length portions of the wall?  The last time I created a real wall style (not just drag-drop from the Content Browser) was back in ADT3.

Any ideas/comments/suggestions are welcomed!

I think the best way is to create curtain walls (or door/window assembly). Is it possible?
Sorry for my English.

I don't know... that's why I'm asking?   :-)

The last time I created a wall style from scratch was with ADT3, many, MANY moons ago.

I'm doing a tilt-slab building right now - so kinda similer to a parking garage.  I'm kind of doing the same thing you are, but, I've created panels as elements and xref them into a construct.  Makes it very easy to edit / control.  How I'm making the panels, because I aslo have reveals, is to create mass elements the size of the panel's components and then convert them to walls of the appropriate type / finish.  does that make sense?  I can post an example if you'd like.

This was created in 2009 but I think 2008 is still compatable . . ..
