Description

In this series of tutorials we'll learn how use adaptive modeling techniques to create intelligent and flexible models in Revit. We'll begin by working in the conceptual massing environment where we'll use reference lines, planes and parameters to create a form and surface. Once the basic form is in place we'll then divide the surface and enable nodes. Next, we'll switch to the generic adaptive modeling environment where we'll create a flexible structural member using reference planes and points that we'll make adaptive. From there we'll load the adaptive component into our massing environment and attach it to each node point located along our mesh.With these tips and techniques you'll be able to use your imagination and modeling tools to create unique and complex forms in Revit. Software required: Revit 2014.

Introduction and Project Overview
Hi there. I'm Pierre with Digital Tutors, an Autodesk authorized publisher. In this set of tutorials, we'll learn how to use adaptive modeling techniques to create intelligent and flexible models in Revit. We'll begin by working in the conceptual massing environment where we'll use reference lines, planes, and even parameters to create a form and surface. Once that basic form is in place, we'll then divide the surface and enable the nodes. Next, we'll switch to the generic, adaptive modeling environment where we'll create a flexible, structural member using reference planes, points, and we'll later make those points adaptive. From there, we'll load the adaptive component into our massing environment and attach it to each node point located along our mesh. With these tips and techniques, you'll be able to use your imagination, as well as modeling tools to create unique and complex forms in Revit. So with that, I'm ready to get started, and I'll see you in the next lesson.
