Fiberous Tower Study and Revit Conceptual Mass Testing

Posted by Charles Lee.

In my ongoing quest to better myself in all things Autodesk I have done two studies one in 3D Studio Max 2010 and the Other in Revit 2010.  The first one is an exploration of a tower constructed of interweaving Fiber Bundles Wikipedia has a good description of the reasons I am interested in this

Fiber, also spelled fibre, is a class of materials that are continuous filaments or are in discrete elongated pieces, similar to lengths of thread. They are very important in the biology of both plants and animals, for holding tissues together. Human uses for fibers are diverse. They can be spun into filaments, string or rope, used as a component of composite materials, or matted into sheets to make products such as paper or felt. Fibers are often used in the manufacture of other materials.

Since last year when I presented at Acadia I have wanted to study Fiberous Buildings after hearing a great lecture on fibers by George Jeronimidis

The other exploration was using the new Conceptual massing tool in Revit 2010 for a tower study.  I used the photos of Ta Prohm as a formal strategy for the generation of complex geometry.  I was able to produce these in an evening. I really am enjoying using Revit!Fiberous Exterior
