3 part wall

Recommended Posts

What is the simplest way to create a 3 part wall?

 

I need to take the metal wall above the block wall and split it where half is translucent fiberglass and the remainder remains metal...

 

Thanks

You could try using a pony wall with the top wall turned into a solid railing using a metal material.

The transparent top section is then a tall top rail using a glass or other transparent material.

This will allow you to work with the wall structure as all one wall.

 

Or did you want it this way?

You need 2 floors to do this.  Just make the upper floor room def. "open below".  That way you get another wall to work with.  I'm not sure but I think this may be what glenn is doing.

Javatom,

 

No, not another floor.

I thought I explained it pretty well - but obviously not well enough.

It is a pony wall with the upper wall defined as a solid railing with a tall top rail.

The top rail is the third wall level, the solid rail is the  middle wall panel and the lower pony wall is the bottom wall level.

All one wall. All on one floor.

Glenn, can you save the file you did and share with us?  Id personally like to review the makeup of the wall.

Very clever Glenn - I love the out of the box thinking, but I think I would take aim at what javatom suggests because you would have better control over the 3 wall type layers.
