    How to Create this Glass Fixture

    I am trying to model a glass light fixture to represent the attached picture in order to place in project and render. I need help in how to create the surfaces/forms in REVIT.

    It is a bit hard to see, but are they plat pieces of glass or are they lens shaped?

    I would go for easy flat pieces of glass, easy to model, for more organic shapes maybe try to go trough Fusion 360?

    These are organic shapes. Need to be able to model and assign glass material to them so revit can render

    Looks like it is 3 separate fixtures, just set at different heights. I'd go that route instead of trying to build just one. As for the lens, I would just keep it simple and build a round extrusion then cut a void to it.

    Then there will be the folks that can make it analytical and link it to Dynamo and make some far out model that is way more that is needed for the project...but it will look way cool.
