Frosted Glazing

Hi,

 

I am currently working on a few projects with the use of privacy/frosted film on windows. 

these films therefore allow for parts of windows to be covered and not others. for example (as below).

 

Is there way of "modelling" this - is is it just a case of using fills on elevations (not something I like to do!)

I tend to use CadImage windows, but open to any solution.

I doubt any windows will be scripted to allow for this.

So yes, fills on elevations or a morph plane if you want to see it in 3D.

Solution

I would use a curtain wall without any division, just the panels set to the smallest possible width

Solution

I make a texture to achieve this type of thing.
