16 Days of Revit Left



It might as well be 2 minutes, as I go back to work on Tuesday, and have a pile of things to between here and there. Things like going to Goat Island Bay and looking at the fish.

As you can see I did not get very far. If you look really hard you might see all the rafters, purlins and fascia boards. For flying rafters, I had to create a family of them - all slanting at 10 degrees.
My thinking was that I wanted to model as much as possible of the underlying roof structure.
I have experimented with various ways of creating purlins-sometimes modelling in place, sometimes creating a family for them.

My conclusion, and I admit here that it is not a very informed one, is that Revit is great if you are drawing multi-story buildings. I'm not so sure about ordinary domestic houses, except where you are happy to represent a roof structure as a slab. This is probably how it is used in real life?
No doubt as your library of families is built up, life would be a lot easier, and quicker. With Autocad the same rule must also apply, except they are called blocks not families.
I considered starting the roof over the garage, and just thinking about it was enough!
Who knows, maybe I'll try copying the lounge roof over and just modifying it?

I am the sort of hombre who passions to seek unused stuff. Currently I am building my private pv panels. I am doing it all by myself without the assistance of my men. I'm utilizing the internet as the only path to acheive this. I saw a very brilliant site that explains how to create solar panels and so on. The website explains all the steps needed for solar panel construction.

I'm not sure about how accurate the information given there is. If some experts over here who had xp with these things can have a see and give your feedback in the site it will be great and I would extremely appreciate it, because I truly passion solar panel construction.

Thanks for reading this. You people are the best.

Hi there!
I would like to burn a theme at this forum. There is such a thing, called HYIP, or High Yield Investment Program. It reminds of ponzy-like structure, but in rare cases one may happen to meet a company that really pays up to 2% daily not on invested money, but from real profits.

For several years , I earn money with the help of these programs.
I don't have problems with money now, but there are heights that must be conquered . I get now up to 2G a day , and I started with funny 500 bucks.
Right now, I managed to catch a guaranteed variant to make a sharp rise . Turn to my blog to get additional info.
