Gustav's Opus on Labor Day

So today, between watching coverage of Hurricane Gustav and being a Revit Geek, I toyed around with the Swept Blend tool to try and emulate a form that another fellow Revit blogger posted about in the past week (this one and this other one).

It took a lot of time and lots of failed attempts, but I finally got pretty close. It's next to impossible to use Revit to conceptualize these forms from scratch, but it's always a good brain-teaser to try and model a form that seems unachieveable in Revit. Below is a picture of the original form:

And this is what I came up with:

Here's another image to try emulate the original picture above. My attempt was on a squarish pattern, while the original is more rectangular (and the joints have a little curl which is too difficult to model!):

Always interesting to see the results of you "dorking out" on Revit. Keep up the great blog. You've got the eyes and ears of The Factory fixated.

Thanks Kyle, now I'm feeling REALLY pressured ;) We love the Factory and I have no doubt that you keep an eye on what the users are up to (love the "dorking out" comment; couldn't describe it better!).
