Join Paul F. Aubin for an in-depth discussion in this video Using the exercise files, part of Project Soane: Recover a Lost Monument with BIM.
- We've inlcuded exercise files with this course, if you're a premium member you have access to the exercise files. I've placed them in a folder here on my desktop and within that folder I've just got a few sub folders. Some of the illustrations we talked about are here in the Scans folder. Otherwise the other folders all contain Revit files. Mostly family files, like here in the Seeds folder and in the Tivoli Columns folder I've broken it down by subject matter. So when we're working on the Coarse, Medium and Fine versions of the Capitol for example, you will find those versions organized in those folders.
Since there are so many files for the Fine version I've broken that down into further sub folders. I'm only providing the files that we actually create here together for the Corinthian Capitol to get access to all of the Sewn material just join Project Sewn and you can download them directly from the Project Sewn website. If you're not a premium member, you don't have access to the exercise files but you can still join Project Sewn and download the models from there and of course you could follow along with your own files.
