Latest PatternGen Update (for Revit 2018, 2019 and 2020)

Description: PatternGen © for Revit is useful for users who wants to automate the manipulation of the sizes of façade panels or placement of the panel on the faced (i.e. Revit divided surface), driven by an image data pixels. It works with any Revit rectangular-base divided surface base only, that has a rectangular-base curtain panel pattern-base family. See samples of Revit families and images available in the download to check the configurations.

Using this Add-on, users can generate the exterior façade panelization using any multiple images as a response to environmental, privacy, and functional. If images are created in certain way, then users can simply create beautiful aesthetic effect like attractor effect.

These are the PatternGen parameters:

1) Users should build the curtain panel pattern-base family with specific parameters called X1, X2, and X3. Where:

2) X1 and X2 parameter are length instance parameters.

3) The input values for X1 and X2 are in inches at the moment.

4) X3 is an angular instance parameter.
