In this Grasshopper video series we will be re-creating the parametric walkway/bridge that had been done on the site before.  In this version of the exercise we'll create  the floor as...

In this Autodesk Revit 2010 training video we'll talk a bit about View Range and how to adjust the settings so that your views cut at a certain depth.  I created a generic family that shows...

In this Autodesk Revit Architecture 2010 video tutorial, we will create a shared parameter to generate a curtain panel schedule that drives the spacing of the louvers. Creating this shared parameter...

In this Autodesk Revit Architecture 2010 video tutorial, we will nest our parametric louver system within a curtain panel family, so that it becomes a parametric panel system that can receive...

In this Autodesk Revit Architecture 2010 video tutorial, we will create a line based family to host the louver family. This louver system will be embedded in a curtain wall family by arraying generic...

In this Autodesk Revit Architecture 2010 video tutorial, we will begin the construction of a parametric louver system. This louver system will be embedded in a curtain wall family by arraying generic...

In this video, we quickly talk about the role of model structure in linked file systems through the topic of shared coordinates.  We give an overview of rotating the project north, specifying...

Highlights of SketchUp - This post contains links to several useful videos on SketchUp7's new tools as well as some interesting plug-ins. Several of these plug-ins and scripts offer tools similar...

This is the second video tutorial in a series exploring the integration of geometry creation and solar radiation analysis in a variety of platforms. The video utilizes the new Solar Radiation...

This is the first video tutorial in a series exploring the integration of geometry creation and solar radiation analysis in a variety of platforms. The video utilizes the new Solar Radiation...

In this Maya video, I'll quickly discuss and demonstrate how some of the animation tools in Maya can be applied to various design processes. In this case, we'll use the Blend Shape deformer...

In this quick and easy Revit video, you will learn how to split a face of your geometry and paint a material onto the newly created face without it affecting your line weights.

This is an outdated tutorial.  If you are using a more recent version of grasshopper please watch this video instead - http://designreform.net/2011/03/rhino-grasshopper-parametric-truss-update...

In this 3ds Max video, we will model by stacking modifiers and understanding their hierarchy in Animate Mode. This tutorial is a response to a discussion on the forum.  

In this Maya video, we will begin the modeling process by constructing a canopy pavilion through direct manipulation. We will start by creating a polygon primitive, transforming its geometry through...

In this Maya video, we will explore the interface and environment of Maya 2009 and discuss its basic modeling controls. We will begin with a breakdown of the interface layout, progress to an...

In this video I walk through the relationship of the default Revit coordinate system (both in Revit 2009 and 2010) to your geometry, and show how to overwrite that coordinate system as well as make...

In this 3ds Max/Rhino video we will  explore the workflow of  exporting/importing geometry in and out of 3ds Max and Rhino. We will begin by creating curves forming a helix in 3ds Max,...

In this Rhino 3D/Revit 2010 video we will explore the workflow of exporting geometry from Rhino through Revit and exporting as an IFC file.   This process is an experimental workflow, so if you...
