Surely everyone agrees. Electricity pylons or transmission towers are terribly unsightly constructions at the best of times. Maybe the Australians say it best, calling them Iron Men, but that gives each cloned metallic colossus a rather too human aspect. All the same, architects Arphenotype are looking to change such preconceptions with their newly born design for a power transmission network in Iceland.

Sending Curves from 3ds Max to Rhino

In 3DSMax, Design, Digital, Rhino, Tutorial, Video on 04/15/2010 at 16:52

Software: Autodesk 3dsMax, Rhino 3D

Description: In this 3ds Max/Rhino video we will  explore the workflow of  exporting/importing geometry in and out of 3ds Max and Rhino. We will begin by creating curves forming a helix in 3ds Max, export them to Rhino to create a panelized surface, then import that geometry back into 3ds Max to create parametric details. The goal of this exercise is to study the functionality of one software platform versus another, understanding what tools are useful in each program.

Topics Covered:

  • Creating curves forming a helix in 3ds Max
  • Importing curvature in Rhino from 3ds Max
  • Rebuilding curves to generate a panelized surface in Rhino
  • Importing panelized surface into 3ds Max and adding parametric detailing

Revit – Parametric Louver System

In Blog, Design, Digital, Revit, Tutorial, Web on 04/15/2010 at 16:39

Software: Autodesk Revit Architecture 2010

Description: In this Autodesk Revit Architecture 2010 video tutorial, we will begin the construction of a parametric louver system. This louver system will be embedded in a curtain wall family by arraying generic model component family that is within a lined based family.  From there we’ll create shared parameters to drive the model from a schedule. This is the first of a series of videos that will explain the the process of creating parametric families within Revit.
