    Seems like a job for a curtain wall.
    Have you tried that yet?

      Create the panels and bars as nested families, and use calculated arrays to space them out evenly

      Try searching the forum for "nest" and "array" - If that doesn´t provide a more detailed explanation, then feel free to ask for one :beer.

          Munkholm, How to make Calculated arrays? what kind of formula to use?

            A short example:

            You have a parameter for the "Width" of the wall, right? and you know that you want the bars at 600 mm c/c, right?

            Then create a new parameter (Integer) "Bar Array", and calculate the array with something like this:

            Bar Array = Width / 600

            There are all sort of tricks involved with this, to avoid the integer becoming "1" which will break the family, and maybe others depending on how your exact requirements are... is the 600 mm an exact or a max value? should the array start from the left or right side, or is it centered, etc.

              Thank u for example, got much more easier.

              No 600 mm is not a exact value, was just an example. Is it big diffrent which side array starts? Its only sign that changes +/-, isn't?

                If the c/c is also a variable, just create a parameter for that too ("Bar Distance"), and use that in the formula:

                Bar Array = Width / Bar Distance

                And no, it doesn´t matter if it starts left OR right, but it does matter if starts left/right OR is centered
