    Adaptive components are the way to go.
    Wold be nice to know how you are going about this in order to resolve the issue.

    I would make adaptive panel (3 types in this case), load into mass, place one of them on a divided surface, repeat, and swap out the ones you want in order to get the wanted panel distribution.

    I don't know how to make it "random" like it's shown in the picture.


    Anyway seems like a fun exercise, so I'll give it a go during the weekend and post the result later...

    Hi byk3bep, I'm using adaptive panel and I'm creating adaptive points and reference lines as you can see in the image 1, I'm adding non adaptive points and lines trying to obtain the geometry you saw in the first post (which actually was modeled in sketch up), but I don't get the same result because the holes are still changing, I think that I'm almost in the point but I don't figure out what I'm doing wrong, tnx again

    4 points is not gonna do it.
    Take a look at this

    http://www.revitforum.org/architectu...uted-wall.html

    At the bottom there are link.
    Not being a solution to your problem, the 2nd one describes how to create curved panels. It could prove usefull...
    Search for Zach Kron on youtube. He's the guru.

    On the problem at hand, more a bit later...

    It took me more then I initially thought, but that's not a surprise...

    Rather then a detailed explanation, I decided to just upload the family.

    https://www.dropbox.com/s/b15o38m07b...eWall.rvt?dl=0

    Have in mind this is a "cosmetic" panel. Didn't manage to figure out how to parametrize the border width, and the turning radius.

    The panel thickness is a parameter, and just for fun I made them different, as is visible in the attached pictures. This is easy to change, and once the parameters are the same the panels will fit seamlessly.

    If you have any questions, feel free to ask.

    I'm hoping someone will point me to the things I could have done in a better way
