Join Paul F. Aubin for an in-depth discussion in this video Understanding adaptive points, part of Revit Architecture: Advanced Modeling.
Adaptive components were first conceived as a way to create flexible elements…that can fill in the irregular edges of panelized divided surfaces.…We saw examples of this at the end of the last chapter.…In this chapter, we're going to look at some of the ways we can use…adaptive components.…But in this movie we're going start with a quick exploration of the…adaptive points themselves.…The points have many options, and we want to just take a quick inventory of what…some of the key options are of those points.…I have got a file open here called Points.rfa and it's a really simple family, as you…can see, and it has several points onscreen.…
They are actually three stand-alone points.…So this one right here which is an adaptive point Placement Point.…This one right here which is an adaptive point Shape Handle Point, and this one…right here which is just a Reference Point.…Now there is also this two here, but those are actually part of the line, and…I'll talk about those a little bit later.…So we really have the three conditions: this one, this one, and this one.…
