Join Paul F. Aubin for an in-depth discussion in this video Knowing when to use adaptive components, part of Advanced Modeling in Revit Architecture.
In the last movie, I mentioned how we can use adaptive components to build some…rather interesting and unusual things.…In this movie I would like to talk about why that's the case.…So, I don't have any files open right now; we are actually going to create it from scratch.…And I want to show you why adaptive components are intriguing.…In this chapter I wanted to show you that if we come over here and we create a…brand new family--now I am not doing new Conceptual Mass; I am doing new Family--…that takes me to the Standard Revit Family Template folder. I'm in the imperial…version; there is also a metric version.…
If you scroll down, you'll notice that under the Generic Model Templates, there…is a special template called Generic Model Adaptive, and this is actually what…makes these adaptive components unique is that their category starts off being…generic model and you can actually change that category to many other things.…So let me go ahead and open this template, Generic Model Adaptive.…At first blush, it looks like the Massing Environment;…
