This Revit Architecture 2009 video tutorial covers how to use conditional statement when scheduling curtain panels.  The techniques put forward in this video are done in an effort to avoid...

Delete Mesh provides parametric deletion based on the current sub-object selection level in the stack. The possible choices are faces, vertices, edges, and objects. Apply the Delete Mesh modifier to...

So.... I do not have to much to say about the bend modifier. It pretty much bends geometry. I tend to use it when i need to model organic object and need to deform and area of a model in a very...

In this Rhino video tutorial we cover how to make scaling circular patterns based on the distance between points. This is similar to a tutorial I built in 3ds Max with wire parameters. Please have a...

This is the third part of a series in which I will try and go through all the operations that can be done at the sub-object level of the various geometry types in 3ds Max. This 3ds Max Video Tutorial...

Since I model with splines I tend to use the surface modifier often. This modifier is also useful when importing splines from other CAD applications such as Rhino or Autocad. Working with clean...

This Revit 2009 video tutorial covers how to add parameters for scheduling and tagging. In this case the objects being scheduled are parking spaces. The problem was that by default Revit is able to...

The CrossSection modifier creates a "skin" across multiple splines. It works by connecting the vertices of 3D splines to form a skin. The resulting object is another spline object that can...

In this Rhino video tutorial we cover how to make a sine and cosine curve with with Explicit History. The initial set up for this tutorial can be used to test any of the math functions. We set up a a...

In this tutorial we cover how to make an exponential curve with with Explicit History. This is an intro to using scalar parameters to driving geometry with math. Also covered, is how to use the range...

This Rhino Video Tutorial covers how to use Implicit and Explicit history (Grasshopper) to model a building massing. This tutorial is one that I had previously done in 3ds Max and wanted to compare...

So.... Have you ever had the problem where your grid lines will NOT show up in elevations?!?!?! This is of course after you have checked your VG settings and maximized 3d extents, still NOTHING!...

This is the second part of a series in which I will try and go through all the operations that can be done at the sub-object level of the various geometry types in 3ds Max. This 3ds Max Video...

In this 3ds Max video tutorial we cover the Shell modifier, one of my favorite 3ds Max Modifiers, especially for architectural modeling. I do the majority of my 3d modeling with splines, and the...

This 3ds Max Video Tutorial goes over the majority of the procedures that can be done at the vertex level of an editable spline. All of the examples are simplified to show the fundamentals of each...

This Rhino 3d Video Tutorial covers how to use Explicit History modeling techniques with geometry created with implicit history. The parametric bridge or walkway that I am modeling comes from a 3ds...

The Lattice modifier converts the segments or edges of a shape or object into cylindrical struts with optional joint polyhedra at the vertices. Use this either to create renderable structural...

The Mirror modifier provides a parametric method of mirroring an object or a sub-object selection. You can apply the Mirror modifier to any type of geometry, and you can animate the mirror effect by...

Just a heads up, this tutorial has no sound. I received quick request for this so I wanted to post it up. More text on this to come since it's missing sound.

This Revit video tutorial shows how to array a series of voids to create a changing truss system. Rather than thinking of the modeling in components what we are doing here is modeling a solid and...
