hello,

I would like a quick training for Revit 2012 - Adaptive Components.

I'm based in Uk, London and maybe we could meet using skype.

If you teach me Mass Adaptive Components I will be happy to pay for you time.

I will use it on a roof.

Thanks,

Fabio

well, I'll give you a brief primer on what they are and how they work. 

Adaptive components are based off of adaptive points.  So in your mass, your geometry is defined by/locked to points, and in your model, the geometry stretches across where you arbitrarily place those points.  (provided it doesn't create a break in the geometry.)

When you build a mass, that mass will be composed of profiles, right?  Those profiles go on workplanes.  typically you would just add new reference planes to your model, but an adaptive point is its own self-contained set of reference planes. 

So as you draw your massing profiles, you have to choose the planes on the adaptive points themselves as your active workplane. 

Make sure your profiles are constrained to the point.

If your adaptive component only needs to stretch in two dimensions, your task is easier.

Thank you for your comments.

The roof grid will be created as a mass than I need to apply the adaptive components on the specific points.
I'm no sure if I could use a normal family or if I have to use an adaptive components.
The roof structure module will not change the size but it will follow the curve of the roof.
It will change the size just at the edge of the roof, where I cant fit a full module.
thanks,

So, I'm looking at your picture--the white triangular blocks are the roof system which you want to be adaptive? 

 

I made up a quick adaptive family--and this is what it can do:  conform to any 6 points you give it.  So if you grid out your roof, you'll have enough information for the components.

 

Sorry, forgot to include the family to see if it meets your needs.  points 1234 are the base, select counter-clockwise.  56 are the top, apply left to right.
