    Question is not about detailing. Barbed wire can simply be represented by model lines. I want to know, can we model this type of barbed wire in revit or not. If yes than what is the simplest way to model, keeping away API or Dynamo.

    Modeling Barbed Wire can be done several ways, and they have been covered in the thread already: Railings, Curtain Walls, Line Based Generic Models, Adaptive Components. How detailed they get is entirely up to you, and how much you want to fuss with the different components that have to get put in to the family. The barbs are easy. The wires are easy. The wires twisting around one another? Doable in all but the Railing method... But i think doing it in any of the methods is a wasted effort. Showing the cables as twisting isnt value adding. It provides nothing but a better rendering of... barbed wire, lol.

    Wow, I completely misread your post. Are you saying you want a family that actually has modeled multiple rows of inter-woven line wire with staggered barbs? Even if such a family existed, I wouldn’t load this pig into a project of mine. What would be the point?

    What I had envisioned you wanted, was an efficient way to wrap a large perimeter with fence. An adaptive component representing one section of the fence (w/ model lines representing the barbed wire) could be repeated along a divided line around the entire perimeter. I like Snowey’s suggestion too. Make it as a railing family and path it along the perimeter. I’d probably go this route because it would give better control of post placement via the “Corner Posts At” setting.

    Other than that:

    I'm chuckling too, Aaron. If the line wire is say, 2 mm, how close would you need to position the camera to it in order to render that LOD?

    BTW: I'm creating new entourage: HOUSE FLYS! What do you think?

    Hasn't changed in over 150 years. Did you know that barbed wire is ranked right up there with the computer as one of the top inventions of all time? Do you care? Anyways, what's our takeaway from this photo suppose to be - or is this actually a rendering of a model component!?

    This is actual photograph from site. My friend challenged that it can not be modelled in revit.

    I've always said "if it can be built, I can model it in Revit"...I wish that I had the time to take the challenge but I don't. Already doing 7/12s

    Please tell me it's made from brick. Otherwise it's just a waste of... well waste
