Ok, apologies, but it has been a number of few weeks since I have posted anything! Things are picking up here in London so I have been really busy, but this is really not an excuse! Anyway, I thought I’d pass this little modelling tip on to you. Somebody in the office asked me a a few weeks back whether it was possible to create a parametric louver system which could be used on a facade for a freeform building they where working on.
So I knocked this solution up with the user sat at my desk inside 10 minutes using a combination of points, nested adaptive components and curtain wall pattern based families. The original example was completed in Revit Architecture 2011, but the youtube video was done in Vasari 1.1. Sorry, there is no sound / voice over, but hopefully I have done the exercise slow enough for you to follow along!
