How to create a vertical 'fin' louvre interior screen wall

Recommended Posts

Hello all

 

I'm a longtime tinkerer since X1 and am now on X12.

 

I'm seeking a way to create a movable (rotating) louvre curtain wall / screen / dividing wall between two rooms that consists of a rotating set of vertical timber slats (eg like vertical louvres/jalousie?) as shown in the attached image.

 

The slats are shaped in a shallow oval (wing shape) on a central vertical pivot on which they rotate with a rail to move them all.  I'm looking to show them on the floor plan and (later) in elevations.  I understand I could make a whole series of CAD shapes but would be very grateful for other methods that allow them to be used as a wall.

 

Thank you

Railing Wall, post-to-beam.Create your own Millwork symbol for the slats and adjust the railing height and tweak the settings as necessary:

Wow!  Thank you for that Robert!

 

When you say create your own millwork symbol, do you mean a polyline solid?

 

Thanks!

I believe he does ...as the 1st step ...then you save the PS as a Millwork symbol

 

depend on your needs you may need 3 ...100% open, 100% closed and perhaps 50% Open for different Views.

As Kbird1 confirmed, yes, you can use a polyline solid, or import the geometry, but it must be saved as a millwork symbol - then it will be available to be used as a newel/baluster.
