In this revit video tutorial, you will be familiar with the necessary steps to model a parametric walkway (twisted looking structure with triangular grid) in Revit.
It begins like a conceptual mass family. You will learn the methods essential for creating model of a spline with triangular profiles at various angles as well as transform it into a form.
Then you will gather knowledge on how to create the model of a curtain panel based family and load it into the mass. Finally, you will learn how the mass is loaded into the project with the addition of a concrete strip at the floor level.
While generating a mass family in the Family Editor, it is possible to load the family into a project, and set instances of the mass family in the project.
Click NewConceptual Mass. In the New Conceptual Mass dialog, opt ofr Mass.rft, and click Open.
The file is available in the following folder:
%ALLUSERSPROFILE%\Autodesk\\Family Templates\\Conceptual Mass
The conceptual design environment opens. The Forms tool and other tools are applied to generate the mass.
In the tutorial, the following shortcuts are used to accelerate the speed of the work.
