Revit Adaptive Component: Practical Archetypes – Curved Glass Curtain Walls

Curved panels are particularly gnarly! Curved and Non-rectilinear are more so. This is one of those situations where you don’t have a choice but to use Adaptive Components. In this post I’m going to attempt to show how simple the

Revit Adaptive Components: Practical Archetypes: The Vaulted Ceiling – Part One

If you had anything to do with buildings in New York, chances are that you may have encountered elaborate, arched or vaulted ceilings. Even if you weren’t designing the space ‘in-the-manner-of’ the gilded age, more often than not, you would

Revit+Showcase = Classy Design Presentations with minimal Effort

One of the neat things about using Revit is the fact that most Building components that come with the software or provided by manufacturers have Parametric Material information;  In this context ‘parametric’ simply means that one is able to change
