There are several free BIM applications that you can have. It’s on Autodesk labs, so probably won’t be free forever. Try them now!
We have already discussed how you can create conceptual design in Revit Architecture. Now we will step further by using Revit adaptive components. What we will do now is to create a conceptual mass to create a roof for Tongkonan house, a traditional Indonesian architecture like below. Image source: batusura There are some more pictures [...]
We have created two building masses for design alternatives. We created the masses as Revit mass families which are saved as external files, not as in-placed families. Creating them as external families are good practice if you have design alternatives. We are going to see why. In this tutorial we are going to place it [...]
Let us continue the Revit conceptual design. We already cover a bit about Revit free form modeling in previous tutorial. This time, we are going to explore Revit free form further. Open your previous Revit mass family. Now save it as to different name. We will use the first mass as alternative design 1, and [...]
Last week, we have cover a little about conceptual design. This time, let us talk a bit more about conceptual design: how we can work with free form modeling in Revit. This functionality added in Revit Architecture 2010. We can easily stretch faces, edges, or points to do free form modeling. This is quite nice [...]
Many architecture design today is quite complex. Some designs are not be able to be accomplished by using the conventional workflow: designing it by floor plan. CAD Notes has covered the conventional method using a residential design as exercise. Just to remind you, you can also have it as e-book for a small price. To [...]
