Join Paul F. Aubin for an in-depth discussion in this video Configuring divided surfaces, part of Advanced Modeling in Revit Architecture.
The conceptual massing environment allows us to create many wonderful things.…We can imagine forms that are simple and rectilinear or freeform and curvaceous.…Regardless of the specific shape that our designs to take on, at some point we…will need to begin considering how they will come into being in the real world.…Often this means taking the surfaces of our 3D forms and subdividing them down…into some smaller and buildable components.…Such rationalization can take place directly within the conceptual…massing environment.…This gives us an excellent way to test our concepts for buildability before…progressing too far in a particular design iteration.…
In this movie, we will look at the first step of this process by covering the…basics of the Divided Surfaces feature.…So to get us started I'm working in a file here called Divided Surface.rfa. It's…a massing family file.…And its version of the project we have been working on throughout the course…of the last chapter.…Now mostly, I've got the forms directly here in this file so as you can see, I have…
