Grant’s Tomb and Coffer Panels


Professor Jason Van Nest’s Special Studies class in the Architecture Department for New York Institute of Technology in NYC did this awesome model of Grant’s Tomb.

2012-02-05_0851ITurns out they needed a coffer dome panel.

Way back in September of 2009 I did a little coffer dome panel experiemt and was honored to be able to contribute it to the cause.


Along with just doing excellent modeling , the students that worked on the model needed to understand how to work together in a workset environment, not always an easy task. 

Great job everyone:

  1. Amazing work! Well done to the team.

  2. Absolutely gorgeous! Would love to get my hands on that model, to poke around and see how they modeled it.

  3. Good work
    is it possible to link this model for download
    I'd like to study the model thanks

  4. Good work!!! It´s good to see people using new tecnologies to work on old buildings. We use to see these new programs only being used for hightech buildings.

  5. Great work from students at NYIT, and especially great teamwork for such a detailed building. Good job!!!
