    how to create a Trespa facade

    Hi guys!

    I was wondering what you guys think would be the best and easiest way to create a trespa panel facade....

    We are planning to use three different layout
    something like this:
    how to create a Trespa facade-feature_matt_finish_122x122px_0.jpg
    this:
    how to create a Trespa facade-caja_los_andes_homepage.jpg

    and a vertical layout with slim but long vertical panels.

    Only way I can think of is creating the panels in a manually created wall component. in that component I would create reference planes and create extrusions from them.
    But that's just my though of it...

    For the second image sure... but for the first with the angles? Parts is the easiest, and most direct, method I can think of.

    Could you both please be more descriptive?
    How to use the curtain wall.
    and what do you mean by 'parts'?

    Thanks!

    You need full desgned and spec'ed facade system or just "looking right on drawings" version?

    The looking right on drawing system would suffice for this project.
    we can work out the system more specified in the detail views
    so please tell me how to create it that way.
    If you dont mind im also interested in how you would handle if you created a fully specified system. Just curious about that one, although i dont need it for now

    thanks!

    Just create wall material with model hatch in it, you can move model hatch lines in your model, can be in a wall structure with air layer just or separate finish-wall. For first layout use parts or split face tool for wall segments. Also you can adjust texture for realistic/render view to match your lines.
    For fully specified system you will need to use curtain-wall tool with custom panel families for corners, parapets, window covers etc. Then you can spec, tag, dim, color/hatch code them easily. Structural part of facade should be made by structural engineer or specialist, but can be included into same curtain wall or made of second curtain wall, or made of regular structural families (mainly beams). This was discussed on this forum before but no best practice found yet, can be achieved by few methods.

    Thanks! I understand what you mean.
    Any way to create a 'real' joint / seam (whats the english name for that?) of about 10mm wide? that you could gives another color?
    lets say I have white panels and would like a 10mm wide black / gray joint in it ? In detail render you would see that.

    Thanks!

    Hi Boris,

    I've done this before using a mullion profile with the thickness of the panel and the width of the joint. If it's an air gap I turn the mullions off in VG.

    Works like a charm

    Good luck

    Ron

    I believe you need to discover family editor more, you can add panel material parameter there, then even use Randomiser plugin for your needs Once you'll learn how to deal with curtainwalls and systems, family editor for creating new panels and elements creating facades will become easy.
    I've posted this example in another thread.
