Join Paul F. Aubin for an in-depth discussion in this video Designing parametric masses, part of Advanced Modeling in Revit Architecture.
As you continue your exploration of the Conceptual Massing Environment, you slowly…become familiar with both how it is similar and how it differs from the…traditional Revit environment.…One such area is how we go about applying constrains when working in a 3D environment.…If you've worked in the Family Editor before, then perhaps you know that one of…the most basic tasks you'll do is to create a parametrically driven box.…However, achieving such a thing in the Conceptual Massing Environment is simple…as it seems, can be challenging the first time you try it.…In this movie, we'll walk through the steps required to create a fully…parametric box form in the Conceptual Massing Environment, and contrast that to…the approach that we would typically take in the traditional Family Editor.…
Now to get us started, I'm starting without any file this time.…We're going to create it from scratch.…We've always provided a file to get us started with.…All of those files were actually created using this feature right here,…
