In this series of tutorials, we will learn to create a complex polyhedron Revit family using adaptive components. Throughout these lessons, we will understand the geometry of the snub dodecahedron. We will learn to create the faces as adaptive component families and also learn to create faces as adaptive components which use multiple placement points to determine orientation of the face. Finally we will learn to manipulate rotation angle of a point and use those adaptive component families hosted by points to construct the snub dodecahedron. Software required: Revit 2014.
With a passion in BIM, Kelvin Tam (Registered Architect, AIA, NCARB, LEED AP) has been thinking out of the Revit package box for challenges that the program could hardly do and trying to push Revit Architecture to the very limit to satisfy architects' specific needs for design, documentation, and management.
