Horizontal lattice siding, just like skip-sheathing

Recommended Posts

I want to model a building that is going to house limb-wood fuel for a maple-sugar farm.  1x3 slats will be applied horizontally with 3/4-inch space between, and that is it.  No other finish on the framing outside or in.

 

Can this be done in Chief?  I have not begun yet, and was wondering how a molding polyline might do, a vertical string of 1x3s in section, to get me up to plate height.  I can do p-solids to front the gable ends.

Could achieve the effect with a png file with transparency, a pattern file for vector views and bump/normals/ambient occlusion maps...if your'e on SSA I'm assuming you're up to x10 and your sig just hasn't been updated? If you make a quick cad sketch of what you want I would help you out

You can use a series of material regions or a symbol along with the new Inserts Into Wall option and its Wall Cutout Polyline.  Here's a quick example using the series of material regions.  Just make the series for one wall, block it, and then copy/paste it around the plan as necessary in plan view.  The material regions supply for the gaps, NOT the 1x3s.  You can use a material region with a gap material type but I prefer to just turn the layer off in the desired views...

Rene's suggestion is a good one too.  I just personally can't stand it when something isn't accurate in all view types.

Thanks to both of you.  I'll try both and see, but had gone ahead with molding polylines, one to do the segments up to the door heads, the other above.  Repeat copy up in the z direction.  The gables are p-line solids.2018-04-13_1532.thumb.png.ca700aac8a65d1b2bcef4a35599d978c.png
