    Uneven surface when pattern family is applied and how to create openings in surfaces

    Hi all,

    I have created a cone like form made up of "timber bricks" (made from a 1/2 step surface with a Generic Model Pattern Base family) Its all looking how I would like it to except from the steps and mystery floating bricks in parts of the surface (see Pic 1). Can anyone tell me why this is occurring?

    Also I want to create openings in the "timber bricks" like the crudely marked-up image (Pic 2), is this possible?

    Thanks all

    Hard to tell without seeing your families.
    You should be able to tab select individual components and swap them out for empties

    Thanks Elton,

    I hadn't thought of that, I found you can also tab select a individual component and delete it - but that seemed rather destructive.
