REVIT Architecture 2008 Curtain Systems Video



Watch the video above and learn how to draw this Solarium in about 8 minutes.

REVIT Curtain Systems and Curtain Walls are really easy to model.

You can draw Curtain Walls just like any other wall and you can model Curtain Systems by using existing model edges, faces or linework.

In the video demonstration above I use a few model lines placed at two different levels to quickly construct the solarium you see above.

Brilliant!
Just what I was looking for.

Will this one be on the main cadclips site as well... it's a wee bit hard to see as a flash movie?

Many thanks.

Thank you for the tutorial.

I could not get the door in. Even though I unpin the panel I cannot option the option to choose the door from. And getting it pined was another difficult task. It randomely worked.

I figured people would have a little trouble with this one. It's a little tricky.

First of all, to change the panel to a door you have to have a 'curtain panel door' family loaded in the project. This is not a normal door but it is found in the 'door' folder in the revit library folders.

Then you have to use the 'tab' key to select the panel, then unpin it, then pick the 'curtain panel door' from the 'type selector' pulldown.

A message to the Google humans and the Google Robots > Unlock my blog !

I have started to post Videos on You Tube. Search for 'CADclip'.

Every Monday I send the same stupid reply message to Google after they send me the same stupid automated apology on behalf of the Google Robots for locking down my blog. It's been 9 weeks since REVIT ROCKS has been locked down wothout warning.

I will get back into blogging as I own www.revitrocks.com anyway but with a different 'non-free' provider that is FOR SURE.

In the mean time if anyone is reading this I have started to post Videos on You Tube. Search for 'CADclip'.

Google Blogger sucks !

Hey there,Im using 2009 jsut now and i was wondering how to shift a curved roof(made by extrusion)'s margins in a plan to follow some more plumpy and protuberant form(i just cant simply get all the lines be other than simple rectangularish shaped.
And also how can i get a curved roof(made by extrusion) to cut the curtain walls going up towards it,making them go no further than what are its own boundaries.
Thank you.
