    Curtain Panel Pattern Based family

    Hey,
    I have a curved sloping panel on which I created a pattern(square) and applied it. Some edges coming out of the geometry. Please check the reference image and advice me.



    Thank you.

    In your first image, your pattern ends with half a tile, at the top and bottom edge. Revit has a hard time deciding how to split your tile, so you'll always get artifacts like that.
    Design a half tile, if thats how you want your pattern to be at the edges, and apply that half tile by hand.

    Or re-think your design, do you really want to end with a half-tile? In a real-life building that would look awful.

    Hey Tuekappel,
    thanks for the reply.
    I have similar situation happening in other part of the panel where it is coming correctly.

    It's nice that you point out the half tile design idea. I know it will look awful and practically the fabricator will not agree to make half-tile design. In my case I have half-tile situation on top and bottom which i can manage by aligning grid end to end and changing the pattern dimension, but still there will be half-tile situation in any one side of this shape(polygon) because in my situation i am not making panel according to pattern, i have restricted panel space.

    Let's not consider the practical application. Just consider there is a irregular space(panel) and pattern. I am just wondering if there is a better way to make a pattern with flexible dimensions or with using formula.

    Divided surfaces can only use a singular spacing in any direction (thats what an array is). You could split your mass faces and use divided surfaces with unique arrays per surface -but thats still another family as well.
