It's a Sconce, it's Civic Architecture, it's a Dessert Topping.

I work a lot in Revit. Revit, for those who don't know, is a parametric building information modeling engine. It is used to design and document buildings, mostly for large scale projects with many repetative elements. However, it can be used to design just about anything, furniture, landscapes, dinosaurs. Mostly, the only limit to it is whatever the pain threshold is of the user.

I recently finished printing this thing, which I think is a wall sconce,

but may be a new London city hall.

In any case, I thought it might be interesting to show how it was made, so the next few post will cover the workflow to get to this form.
