- Hi, my name is Paul F. Aubin, and I'm thriller to be here at Lynda.com again, teaching advanced modeling in Revit Architecture. We have an exciting course planned for you. The conceptual modeling environment is a dynamic, free-form, 3D modeling workspace. I'll be presenting the course in Revit 2012, but rest assured that most of the features I present will work nearly the same in releases 2011 and 2010. I'll start with creating basic forms, modifying forms and the difference between model and reference based forms. From there, it gets really fun, working in the context of a theoretical new Museum of Modern Art facility, we'll look at applying geometry to the massing surfaces, configure divided surfaces, apply custom curtain panels, and use adaptive components to refine the many architectural details.
We'll discuss traditional forms, such as dormers and moldings, and build contemporary forms, like a custom grand stair and a free-form mural wall, devoted to modern street art. So, if you're ready to begin your journey into Revit's exciting, conceptual massing environment, you've come to the right place. Let's dive in.
