Any suggestions on how to achieve something similar to the image below.
I'm thinking the method would be to create one segment as a curtain wall panel then repeat using curtain wall.
But haven't done before and be interested to see what other users have done.
Are you required to provide drawings to produce this scrollwork? If not, could you just use a texture? This being even more viable in 25 given that you can show actual textures in elevation and section?
If you looking for just for the presentation then you may try this exercise shown in my you tube video. https://youtu.be/6048x8LpFcM
Not suitable for any detailing or such design needs.
my first impression: model one segment of the panel with a slab, save the slab as a rail panel, model the full width/length with the railing tool
second thought: photoshop a png with transparent background, model as a morph with a surface using the png (downside would be it would need to be 0" thick)
third option would be to model the repeating panel with a slab as suggested above, save as an object, and add a ROTx 90 line at the front of the 3d script and replace the 2d script with PROJECT2 3,270,2; then place and copy the pattern around
It seems like both the railing and the curtainwall solutions assume the basic fretwork modules will fit perfectly in between the columns. Easier I think to just do it all with morphs. Copy the basic module, Union them into one morph and trim to fit.
But really, this kind of thing just cries out for loopy GDL with a stretchy 2d symbol. Is Param-O up to it yet?
Custom panels not cropping might not be an issue here, as from the photo, if it is not just and example, there are walls abutting both sides of scrollwork, so you could just align the pattern to the outside corner and have the excess hidden by the walls.
