Something must be in the water. In the last week I've received about 5 or 6 requests for information on this model. Not sure why it's happening now, but I'm happy to oblige as best I can.
I first made this model back in late 2009, looking at SOM's Transbay Transit Center, as we were developing some of the adaptive components functionality. Unfortunately the model was in a weird, mutant, partially developed state, so I couldn't pass it around.
I'd love to do a step by step tutorial on how to make it, but I can only get around to rebuilding it, then playing back the process for your viewing pleasure. So, jack into the matrix, keep your hand on the pause/rewind, and see what happens!

very cool. great post zach. thanks for the inspirationReplyDelete
Nice! This demystifies it a bit.. but it's way harder to follow without recommended listening.ReplyDelete
Will you be able to upload a slower version of this video...it's an awesome video...but too hard to grasp...ReplyDelete
Thanks Zach for opening my eyes to a whole new side of Revit and massing tools. Very exciting and cool. You're going to make Calatrava jealous doing this type of stuff.ReplyDelete
I dont have the adaptive component family in my library. Where Can I get that?ReplyDelete
In Vasari, the Adaptive Component is in the new families template folder, in Revit 2012 look for Generic Model Adaptive.rftReplyDelete
Hello Zach, I had a question on your video. I'm trying to follow along myself, but I'm unsure of how you do the move at 2:57-58. I have managed to put my adaptive component on the surface just as you have, but you're able to eliminate the surface altogether at the end. How do you do that?ReplyDelete
