I'd like to have a compound curving curtainwall, with curving or bent rectangular panels. It's easy enough to get the overall form created, divide the surface and apply a rectangular pattern. However, then one needs to load a rectangular panel by pattern. Once applied the panels are truely planer, and the surface is faceted. Now most of the time this is a good thing, as it better represents how something might really be constructed. In other words, you would make something that approximates a curved surface out of a bunch or planer elements (very Revit). The problem is, I need to make the panels actually curved or bent. How would one create a panel that follows the oringinal curved surface of the underliing geometry. I've been searching and can't seem to find the answer.
