Skeleton Modeling Basics
Skeleton Modeling Basics
Welcome back to our tutorials on working with Autodesk Inventor software. In this installment, we examine a lesser-known assembly-modeling technique often referred to as skeleton or master model modeling.

Autodesk Revit Structure Tips & Tricks
Autodesk Revit Structure Tips & Tricks
Traditional structural engineering firms usually work in two parallel groups: structural engineers who design the structural systems using analysis programs; and structural drafters, who use engineers information to create structural drawings within CAD software. Because the information is transferred manually between these groups, the usual flow of change orders from an architect results in an excessive number of interactions that are prone to introduce errors.***Free Registration Required***

Viz V3.0 - T3 - Finishing
In this final tutorial you`ll finish our simple interior, by putting some pictures on the walls and inserting your coffee-table (from Tutorial 1). Then we`ll go for a walk through the space - by creating an animation - which will take 30-40 minutes so try to leave that much time...

The Best Table In The House
The Best Table In The House
The power of parametric design software lies in the fact that dimensions don't just numerically represent the size of an object but actually control the size. If you change the number, then the object's size changes to match.

Revit 5/6 - 3d House - Lesson 5: View Range, Partitions And Stairs
REVIT is a new 3D architectural application adopted by Autodesk. Trying something more direct here, we draw a 3D house top to bottom including the site. Along the way we learn all the pertinent commands and intuitive interface. (Video Tutorial)

Controlling Positional Representations
Controlling Positional Representations
Sometimes you need to evaluate the kinematics of an assembly in different states of assembly function. Autodesk Inventor 10 allows you to create positional representations and then override constraint values and component placements to create multiple positional representations to better examine different solve states for an assembly.***Free Registration Required***

Revit - Parametric Truss System - Part 1
Revit - Parametric Truss System - Part 1
This Revit video tutorial shows how to array a series of voids to create a changing truss system. Rather than thinking of the modeling in components what we are doing here is modeling a solid and using Revit’s cut geometry tool to slice a solid into stick members. The only catch to this techniques is that each truss has a slight slant on the top and bottom. This is something that i willing to look past since i figure it will be lost in the line weight. Once this model needs to transfer to a higher lever of precision i would consider another modeling technique. As a design tool this technique allows for quick iteration while maintaining the design intent. This is the first part of a two part series the second video will dive deeper in using formulas to drive the spacing and thickness of trusses (and why it’s in a line based family:)).

Revit - Missing Grids in Elevation
Revit - Missing Grids in Elevation
So…. Have you ever had the problem where your grid lines will NOT show up in elevations?!?!?! This is of course after you have checked your VG settings and maximized 3d extents, still NOTHING! Chances are the elevation view is not perpendicular to the grid lines. In most cases this makes sense, how is the program going to know where you want to intersect the infinite planes of the grid lines. In this Revit tutorial I establish the point of intersection as the point where the site boundary and grid line intersect. Once that rule has been established, we cover how to create a generic family that is placed in plan and is visible in the elevations. Through the use of tags and parameters we coordinate the naming of the grid to assure they match on the plans and elevations. I think this is an interesting issue to solve and am sure people have options on this so please feel free to post your thoughts or comments on this technique or even whether this should be done at all.
