    URGENT HELP Parametric wall following path and making a section varies

    Hi guy
    Fist thing I`m glad to be part of this group
    I`m struggling to make a parametric wall which follow a path and I would like to maker the section varies
    Maybe this tutorial should explain what I`m looking for
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HnkD0LYqx3M
    the Issue is this I followed this tutorial but I`m not able to find the index mapping parameters to load into the family
    watch 5.23 minutes.
    I thought to use Dynamo but I didn`t find any sample or tutorial which show something similar
    thanks in advance for your help

    Can you post what you have done so far?
    What do you mean by "the index mapping parameters to load into the family"?

    What is supposed to happen to the wavy pattern at the openings of the wall?

    What I mean is, does the pattern stop before the openings, or does it need to continue above and below the windows?, as if the pattern was cut with voids?

    Please refer to this post: http://www.revitforum.org/architectu...html#post87334
    Based on that, you could create the wall with that pattern. I don't think it's possible to make the pattern stop for openings at windows and doors, and go around them, though. Maybe embedding the pattern into a pattern-based family? Maybe not. I don't know if that will work. But at least you can do the "wall" with the pattern.

    The index mapping Add-in, is presumably a part of the "Parevitism Toolbox", found here:

    Oh, I see. I didn't notice that in the video the user was using an add-in. The video is very blury. Anyway, this is possible without add-ins. It's a matter of controlling the elevation of the midpoint of that triangular piece, and make it move one notch as the repeater is being repeated along the path.
