    Question Tensile Roofs in Revit Architecture

    Hi there.

    I have been approached by a client (A Marquee & Tent Company) to draw a series of tensile structures.
    Is it possible to draw tensile roofs natively in Revit Architecture? Or should I be looking at other Autodesk software solutions like Vasari or Inventor?

    Here's the sort of structure they would require to be modelledTensile Roofs in Revit Architecture-tensile-roof.gif

    Thanks,
    Craig

    Sure it can be made. You have to look for Adaptive Components. Make a search here and in Zach Kron's blog Buildz.
    Waiting here for questions... Good luck.

    Thanks Julien

    Okay so adaptive components would be the way to go... Will have a better look at them now! What about Gravity and getting the fabric to droop naturally? I see that in Vasari there are features which allow this 'droop' to be achieved.

    Are you sure? Vasari is basically Revit free-form engine+energy analysis features (and working in perspective view ).

    This is the Nucleus engine. But it creates non-parametric forms. Only a lab feature for me.

    Be aware that the surfaces created from curves will triangulate.

    Wow thanks Alfredo!

    That illustrates it really well!

    Appreciate the video
