    timber facade question

    im trying to create a facade system of timber panelling. i want them to be seperated and at different lengths where some would stop at windows etc.
    what would be the easiest way to do this for a relative beginner.
    i did something similar before but i had every piece of timber a wall and then copied and stretched them etc but im looking for an easier way

    If it is a flat and vertical facade, you could maybe try a vertical structural beam system, after first making sure you have profiles for your timber in the project. After the beam system is made, you can move each individually if you wish. Just another use for a method that Mark. B. mentioned for making fences. Never used it on a facade, but there is no reason why it wouldn't work if the facade is straight.

    Or go with a curtain wall with custom mullion profiles and no panels. You can edit profile to create openings for windows and doors.
