very nice! Congrats

The example of Zach is quite interesting, cause it shows a bottom up approach typically used in manufacturing software like Inventor. This means that such a roof is probably more efficient to recreate it in a latter phase when the final geometry is known.
Not to pile onto what Revit can't do, but it is so frustrating to create sweeps in revit that are based on the picked path of complex curves. It would be great if Revit's error message would give a more detailed explanation of why the element cannot be created. After some hypothesizing, I can only figure that the sweep might barely intersect itself.
The other thing that is frustrating about picked path sweeps is that the profile planes are always tangent to the point on the curve. It's not like the Conceptual massing environment where you can switch between local and global coordinates.
If anyone can offer some insight into whether it's possible to change the profile plane coordinate system that would be mighty helpful.
I have been having some fun with a canopy for a project we are doing.
The Elevaiton is driven by one spline and the canopy span by another spline.
I'm starting to become quite amazed how powerfull the adaptive components / Massing famalies are.
I have read thru all the above posts
very impressive Little about why i am here
I have a very complex form to bring into Revit
Was scanned and brought into Rhino My colleage does the Rhino portion
We have acad 2011 and revit structures 2011
I have not touched acad since 2008 (architecture) I have not made much headway past Revit architecture 2009 after I got laid off
In a crunch to learn software and be productive to create structural support for free form in Revit to do clash detection with primary structure and building structure
I love the fact that 3d acad comes into Revit now!
The exports from Rhino are polylines (sim to contour lines with elevations)
So either from acad and or Revit I need to have true 3d form or surface in order to cut a lot of sections in Revit and detail the structural support system. What would be the best approach? Thought I could learn on my own but todays day and age collaboration is so important for just in time delivery. Please help me. Perhaps a starting point. Thanks so so much in advance.!!!!!!!
If someone can do that, please e-mail me: email@example.com
Did you did tha with adaptative componentes, line by line?
Thank you. i'm studying everyday the mass tool to be able to do things like that.
Now I see, I thougt that you made a complex family that behave like a spatial truss. In this case, a very complex spatial truss.
I saw an image in buildz that gave a light about how to do a spatial truss. There is. Design Reform and buildz are helping a lot

Theres the image.
