    Hey, this is CA. Our outhouses are made from earth toned organic materials. Come to think of it, brick fits right in there. Nice call

    Sure, you can "model it in Revit".... in the same fashion you can "do CDs in Illustrator". There's lots of possibilities with ACs, and if nothing else, you could make Dynamo generate vertex points and generate geometry from those points. So, yes, it can technically be "modeled in Revit" if you have the stomach, time, and math for it.

    "Appropriateness for use" is an altogether different question though...

    IMO, appropriateness and can it be done don't necessarily belong in the same sentence. The challenge was "can it be modeled in Revit?" not is it appropriate, is it time valuable, does it make any sense, will it be to large of a file, etc. Of course it's inappropriate, it's stupid barbed wire

    Here’s what I was able to do in a couple of hours on Saturday: a single barb and interwoven wire (Generic Model Adaptive template). It was a great excuse to use to get out of doing my “honey-do” chores around the house. Ha!

    Anyways, I think this proves that your friend would lose his bet. It really wasn’t that difficult to do, once the process was figured out. I have no doubt that I could get it look exactly like the real thing with a little more time and effort.

    Still, the question remains: why model, or even discuss modeling barbed wire it at all? Unless you’re working in the animation department at Pixar Studios (“Bug’s Life 2: Cattle Flies!”), this level of detail will never be seen.

    Cheers!
