I am wanting to achieve a panel cladding similar to the one below:
The panels seem identical and overlap on each other in a consistent way.
I would also like to use a grid that is not necessarily square like in the example above, but more like this one:
- Is it possible in Evolute Tools to make a mesh with such shapes?
- Would there be a way to approximate all mesh faces into strictly identical ones?
- Would there also be a way to then set an overlap between those identical faces, avoiding collision issues (for instance panels intersecting each other)?
The panel cluster function seems to be a good direction but I only have the lite version of ET so far, and I would like to make sure if the pro version is worth buying to solve my problem.
I hope the question is clear, thank you anyway for your kind help.
