    As I said before, this is possible, up to the point of creating the pattern, but I don't see a way, without using external tools, of creating openings for windows and doors, like the OP is describing. At least the pattern is possible without add-ins.

    EDIT: I take that back. It is possible to make the pattern go around openings. (Nothing like the "what if" questions that one makes while taking a shower to fix a problem. I will come back to this thread with more information after the conference. Greetings from Melbourne. )

    Stay tuned. More information coming... (sorry, not too much time these days). This is one solution: at the Repeater family, moving the slider point, (adaptive point # 2) makes a point (indicated as 'A') rotate forever along a circle. As that point rotates, it determines the elevation of point 'Z', highlighted in yellow, and that causes the variation of the triangle. When this Repeater is loaded into the Repetition family, that point 'Z' will move up and down, but always within the limits of the height of the wall, which is controlled by 'H', and by the circle.

    But, this is not all, because you say that this needs to have openings. So that requires an additional step; actually, a change in the workflow. Stay tuned. For the meantime, you can study how this works. Families attached; same families that were part of the dataset of one my classes yesterday at RTC 2014 in Melbourne, Australia.

    Thanks a lot I will try and let you know my best way was to use several adaptive component and change dimension to increase and decrease the bump

    Well, bad news... working on that "aha moment" that I had in the shower, everything was going well at the beginning (in the family editor). I managed to make openings in the adaptive repetition, but as soon as I load the family into a project, the openings disappear. So, if it doesn't work in the project environment, it's not really useful for your project. Sorry. Attached is an image showing a summary of my attempts.

    besides that bad new... do you have inserted another parameter - for instance a true/false one - one that goes on/off in regard a certain range of the primary parameter?

    No, no yes/no parameters. Simply, the openings disappear when I insert the family into the project.
