Description

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.

Introduction and Project Overview
[Autogenerated] I'm coping town. I'm an architect and the beam Specialties in Columbus, Ohio. For the past 10 years, the easy industry has been in transition from A to D working and Roman to a three d been perform auto. This river is the most widely used beam software by the professionals. I have work on a variety of being projects off brooding types, including makes use, healthcare and spots. I have taught classes in a number off beam conferences, including Auto Desk. You know, arrestee referred Technology Conference, not Farm Wrecker and Refer Technology Conference Actual Asia. In this serious off lessons, we will learn how to use auto deaths, referred architecture to model, a complex, policy drawn family. And this family is parametric, that this size can change with its length off the edge. And with that, you can easily make these domes off different sizes. Let's go ahead and guest
