This is my first time w/ a comment so please excuse any social blunders. We do a lot of custom log homes (big 12"-14" logs) and I looking for a Revit compatible way to do log walls that work with the program. Anybody have this figured out?

I've never done a log building so I don't know the ins and outs of detailing it but I think you should be able to do it like any other wall just apply an image map to the material for rendering...

I'm more concerned with getting a reasonable log profile when cutting wall sections. I'm not as concerned with the rendering aspect as the working drawings.

Hi! Then I used my Altar for the electric age See the Gallery Honestly I was aiming at making a log wall If you download this tutorial - 12 Mb http://revit.autodesk.com/EN/6_0/Documents/TutorialsMetricENU-A4paper_size.pdf You can find how to make wall sweeps and you have to have a Profile for that Select M_Wall Sweep-Brick Soldier Course: 2 Bricks for Profile. You can make your own profile Take a look at Altar for the electric age And you will discover that I have used a profile of a human face. My intention was to make profiles for logs I think this can be the method to get really realistic Have a try and report back, please! Log houses are nice. Timber is nice.

I checked out your log walls in the Gallery and they look great. It's nice to know that I can get them. The window looks good. I will have to study a little on exactly how that works when one has a LOT of windows (we do big log homes). It will probably be a couple of days (nights?) before I have a chance to work out your technique. Thanks for the guidance.

Hallo Bill!
Have a look at my tutorial on sculptured walls eg. log walls.
You can do more than one opening. But every opening must have a closed contour and no crossings are allowed.

Have a look at the other method I suggested - doing log walls with sweeps - and report back if you can make it function.

Still I hope there will be a TUTORIAL GALLERY with thumbnails, images and text - also the possibility to upload .pdf-files - on Revitcity so it will be easier and faster to contribute with a little tips and see ones own contribution immediatley -just like uploading an image.

Because there is a lot more in Revit that you need a little help with...

Using the wall sweep method, I created an 8" three sided log profile and stacked them up on a wall type to the height wall I wanted.  The profile is offset so the wall is inside the log profile.  Assign a wood material.  After placing the walls go to an elevation and select the wall sweeps.  One can individually extend every other log out beyond the end of the actual wall to get the log corner look.  Works good looks great.  I uploaded a rendering of a small building in log.

I think for most of us, we would like to see a screenshot of what you are talking about or what you have done. Thanks!
