    Corrugated Metal Wall

    I'm trying to create a corrugated metal wall type.
    I tried the curtain wall way and add reveal way. They all have some issues.
    The thing I did was in the edit assembly create a vertical structure.
    But the reveals can only working horizontally not vertically.

    Anyone has an idea how to change the orientation of this? or any good ways to build a corrugated metal wall?

    Pls help me. Thanks.

    What was wrong with the CW method you tried? 'cos that's where I'd be pointing you toward...

      I agree with Snowy. No reason to not do corrugated panels with curtain wall. I detail a lot of Morin panels and have found, after some trial and error with curtain panels, that the easiest way to do horizontal or vertical corrugated panels is by using mullions instead of curtain panels. Just create a profile using the Profile-Mullion template of the correct size and with two corrugations wide (doesn't matter re vertical or horizontal panels at this point). Load that profile into your project and create a new mullion using that profile. Then create a curtain wall type for your panel wall and specify your mullion as either a vertical intermediate or horizontal intermediate, don't specify types for any other mullion types then set your vertical or horizontal grid to Layout: Fixed Spacing and specify the center to center dimension of your two corrugations wide profile. I make curtain panels = Empty. Then create your corrugated curtain wall in a project floor plan as is normal. For backup wall construction (studs and sheathing for instance) I use a separate wall type. Nice thing about this method, is if you have the need it's easy to schedule panel widths and heights and total area for takeoff purposes. I just did these corrugated walls in less than 5 mins. If you'd like the project file with the mullion profile and mullion setup to investigate, let me know

        Thanks dave, thats brilliant. Another ahha moment for me. Another time using another tool does the job. Will definitely give it a go.
        I have wondered sometimes that we can have sweeps horizontally in walls, but it is missing the ability to have the vertical profile, and how that would be good to have that.

          I’ve been using curtain wall panels with the profiles as arrayed sweeps. It would be interesting to try both and see which performs better in a project. I suspect the panel would be slower because of the arrays.

            that's been my experience too. The mullion process is just quicker and lighter. And, putting together the little sample that I posted illustrates how one can make any corrugated profile on the fly without much time spent. Around here, time is $

              How does the mullion method work when you have sheets that are cut to widths that don't equal out nicely?

                1. why mullions instead of a panel with an array?
                2. why do you do your mullions as 2 corrugations wide instead of individual?

                  I don't worry about panel widths or overlaps at joints or where to stop at a corner. I'm providing a model with a visually accurate panel in all views and that panel wall has enough information built into it that I can mathematically order panels by quantity of sheets at standard panel width x however long the panels will be for that particular project. Any change of face plane has a 6" wide brake formed angle that allows a lot of +\- in panel width. Plus in the field if installers run into a condition where a panel is a bit to wide, rather than cut it they just increase the overlap

                    Mullions instead of curtain panels per your post above. Maybe two corrugations is not the correct term. Should be ONE corrugated pattern consisting of an outie and an innie shape. Does that make more sense?
