Barn conversion

Postby tim123 » Sun Feb 14, 2010 9:38 am

We finally got planning permission for the barn conversion - not a straightforward process. I posted some of the images on Revitzone, but here are some updated ones at better quality.

Here's another internal view - it's also a studio.

Great stuff Tim.
When I die, I want to go peacefully like my Grandfather did, in his sleep -- not screaming, like the passengers in his car.

Wow :shock: Nice images man. Would you mind telling me how the timber frames were modelled?

thanks

Thanks for the comments.

Aaron, I modelled the trusses as individual structural families. I extruded the different truss members separately so that I could align the wood grain with it. A useful aid here is to give the material a line pattern parallel to the grain in the render map so that you can rotate the pattern to line up with the element in a shaded or hidden line view so that it renders correctly.

I did the studs as in place extrusions to match the actual ones in the barn.

Thanks Tim.

How long would a model like this take to make from scratch. And how long does it take to get this good at Revit? :o

To model the barn as existing probably took about a day. The design process took a while as we went through many options (using design options) until we were happy to send it in for planning approval. I would think to model the solution as designed would take about a day also.

I think that one could become fairly competent at using Revit fairly quickly, depending on how much you use it and how much you are preepared to explore the software and figure out some of the more intricate capabilities. Doing tutorials and following forums such as this one also help to improve Revit skills. I'm not sure how long you've been using Revit, but keep going - you can only get better.
