Ballroom Re-hash

This is a re-post from my original blog that was hacked a while back:

Enjoy the links on the Right and email me if you've got a good one to add.


One of the latest Revit models I've finished was this ballroom. The dentals(hard to see) were created using a line-based family which is hosted to the moulding and made a quick job of it. There are some elements here using model lines to create/represent the form, including the secondary chandeliers, and column capitals. This model made for an enjoyable 2 weeks. The rendering is using Revit 2008's built in accurenderer which was satisfactory, but 3D max would have provided a much better result.

Academy Ballroom 2

Building complex calculation into families, far beyond those in the line-based family referred to above, are fascinating. Tutorials will be posted in the Revitology section and will cater to fun how-to's and Revit modelling methods and tricks.

Keep Watching.
