Cladding wall in MEP

Recommended Posts

hoss

Hi,

 

Is there anyway to create Cladding walls in MEP.

I am drawing a big warehouse, that the outside all is just metal cladding.

Is there a tool to make this, or do I have to draw a section and extrude it.

 

Thanks

You can use the WallAdd command on the Architecture Palette. Just make your dimensions accurate. If you wanted to get fancy, or save for future uses, then create a style with all necessary dimensions and parameters in place, then add a material to it simulating the "look" of the wall.

I am using these Dimensions, with 5mm thickness

 

I draw a polyline replicating the above image, then used walladd and set width to 5mm and height to 3m and went over the polyline to create the cladding sheet.

 

The part that I am not following is creating the style. Does creating style means that when I deploy walladd with the saved style I get __/---\__ instead of standard recangular wall?

In the Style Manager, under Architectural Objects > Wall Styles, this is where you create a new one.

 

Alternatively, you can check out the stock Wall Styles directly from Autodesk at this location:

C:\ProgramData\Autodesk\MEP 2011\enu\Styles\Metric

 

Open up the different DWG files named Wall Styles and check out how they did there's. Through the years, this is how I figured out how to make decent AEC Walls by reverse engineering what they did.
