After your initial masking explorations, you have likely settled on a form…that you're satisfied with and that meets your initial pro forma and energy…analysis requirements.…So at this stage, you can begin using the massing model to create an…actual building model.…This is one of the neat benefits of the massing toolset.…We can take our massing model, bring it into a project, and then start applying…actual model geometry to it.…The kinds of geometry you can add are walls, floors, roofs and curtain systems.…So in this movie we are going to take a look at that process.…
So what I have here on screen is a file called Apply Geometry.rvt.…It's just a version of our project that we have been following along with and…you can see that the site has been refined slightly.…There are some recesses here in the site, this is called a Building Pad and we…will actually have an opportunity to talk about the building pads a little bit…more in the later chapter.…So for right now, we will just use this one that's already got the pads…
