    Fill a dubble curved mass face with panels

    Hi all,

    I am quit new to Revit. I have made a test of a double curved mass, approximaltely 13x8 meters, with curves of low and higher radius.

    I want to place pattern based panels on the mass, but thes panels have some restrictions: they can only bend at a radius on a straight line (so they are not curved as panels)

    My question is: What pattern fits well in this situation? To fill this mass with bended panels (faceted) but no curved panels?
    I was trying to make it with hexagons and made a custom patterned panel, but I don't exactly know how to make the parameters for this.

    See the image attached. The red lines are milled lines to bend the panel up- or downwards, the dashed lines are suggestions of me for additional bend lines?

    Because there is no material of the hexagon been removed from the panel, the sides can bend, depending of the other part isn't bended. So I want to make this hexagon smarter with parameters, but can's figure out well how to do so?

    Maybe there are suggestions of doing the curtain panel fill on my mass object in a totally other way?
    I really want to hear that...

    Thanks in advance!!

    Hello, Mikeymore, welcome to Revitforum.

    I would like to help you on this, but the question is not clear enough. Can you post a sketch that gives an idea of the desired result?
