Divide and Pattern Surfaces

The conceptual design environment allows the ability to divide and pattern complex surfaces and then add building detail that can later be fabricated. Divide Surface allows you to separate surfaces by levels, reference planes, or model lines, and add patterns to them. Then you create and apply parametric components that automatically conform to the divided surface of the complex form.

You can schematically study curtain system designs or structural framing layouts, or begin to apply curtain panels to your form with Divide Surface. These designs have a persistent relationship to the BIM model at all stages of the project.
