Create surface for wall (can be done manually)
2) Get vertical edge curve (can be done manually)
3) Divide curve randomly into 2" and 6" segments
4) Put a segment of predetermined length after each 2 or 6 inch segment (say 1/4") for reveals
5) get end points of segments
6) generate horizontal curves based on length of the surface's horizontal edge curve
7) split original surface with new curves
8) move reveals backward a certain distance opposite of original surfaces normal
9) extrude reveal curves backward the same distance so the 2" and 6" boards appear solid
I'm going for an effect similar to the boards in this image

. I would end up with domains of 0-6, 6-8, 8-16, 16- 24. Is there a simple way to do this besides using divide and moving the points around after?
thanks!

{8} become {1) etc
(see image attached)
I've played around with series components and feeding the data into a tree branch in stages (0-4 5-9 etc), however the amount of branches i need to merge (5 in this case) is a variable that plan on changing in the future so I want a more sophisticated solution than manually copying groups of series components and feeding them into separate tree branches.Thanks in advance for any help…
