In Revit 2010 it is possible to make beatifull masses via a mass-family (in a sketchup-alike way).

Is it also possible to create such complex shapes when creating an in-place family of the type 'Generic model' or any of the structural categories (column, floor, wall, framing, foundation)? Or is it only possible with a family of the 'mass' type?

I know I can create wall, floors and roofs of the mass (by face), but thats not what I want. I want the complete form to be a constructive element (mainly because of the schedules and material takeoffs).

Thanks in advance,

Lennart

No, if you use the "Create In-Place" you have the old forms (extrusion, blend, sweep...), you can do that directly in project using the "In Place Mass" or in the Families and "Conceptual mass"

I "expect" to see more of the conceptual massing functions in the family editor and in-place family function in the future. maybe hold your breath for 2011? j/k

 

Typhoon, I'm suprised you havint customized your quick access toolbar yet. I am curious to see what functions people are commonly putting there.
