This is a tutorial I learned from watching Phil Read at Autodesk University. Using curtain panels in Revit we create an undulating hexagon panel that can be hosted by a curtain system. I cover adding...

We nest a generic family in a curtain panel and use the length and width of a single panel to drive the the amount of extrusion of each panel.

This Rhino 3D video tutorial goes through the basic steps of drawing a plan of Mies Van Der Rohe's Barcelona Pavilion.

This Revit Architecture 2009 video tutorial covers how to create and control schedules.  In this tutorial we schedule different wall types to manage the quantities of a buildings facade. Here is...

This Revit Architecture 2009 video tutorial covers how to import geometry from Rhino via Autocad.  Really this technique will work for any program that can output a .sat.  Even if the...

This Revit Architecture 2009 video tutorial covers how to use tags as drivers for parameters rather than just for display.  The idea here is to use "working tags". The Tags can easily...

Image Provided by Milan Dale & Micah Roufa A few students and I were invited by James Vandezande to speak at this weeks NYC Revit User Group Meeting. We presented the work from the workshop...

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...

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...

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 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...

This video tutorial gets into the basics of creating shared parameters in Revit and how to create schedules to access them. In this tutorial scheduling is meant to be used more as a spreadsheet...

This group is building a parametric auditorium. In this session we are trying to figure out the best way to drive the seating arrangement from the floor angle. Also we are looking at the best way to...

Revit Architecture 2009 is out and has some pretty cool new features. The first one I'm posting about is Sweep Blend. I cant think of a better way to explain it than saying imagine taking the...

Disclaimer: These video are from an open help session with student to work through some of the problems they are encountering making not so regular Revit Families. I stumble a bit with some of these...

Explaining some of the basic aspects of Revit. Where Levels are in the hierarchy. How walls constrain to levels, copying in place or by level. This is just one of many tutorials that will explain...

Pretty basic tutorial, If you know this then it won't effect you if you didn't. you'll be glad you don't have to navigate to you project folders anymore.  

This tutorial covers the different methods of creating 3d geometry in Revit. I explain the pro and cons of using solid extrusion, Blend, Revolve, and sweep. These are explained within a massing...

This tutorial covers how to make face based families, change a family category, and make voids. face based families are pretty handy for a few reasons. A big one though is that they do delete when...

This tutorial covers how to use reference lines to constrain or drive radial shapes. In the past I have found this to be tricky when using Reference plane but with a reference line it is quite easy....
