    help with a earthship design

    hello I am just started a architecture degree. and have been amazed by revit. but I am currently stuck with assignment. does anyone know how to make a wall out of tyres( like the earthship design) or where I can download a tyre structure for walls. any advice or help would be most welcome

    If you use a wall tool the best option I can think of off the cuff are:
    • Create a basic wall that is the right width (+/- 30") create a fill pattern that shows your tires
    • Use a curtain wall with custom panels
    • Use the massing tools along with a curtain wall (I know next to nothing about this)


    Your sections will need some custom detail components for any method but that is the easy part (IMO)

      I agree that a custom curtain wall with pre-specified spacing, mullions and panels would be worth a try. Should work, and it will tell you how many tires you need.

        Don't earthship walls offset courses of tires? Like Bricks? Curtain wall won't help there, I don't think.
        Apparently BigBadBIM was taken, so MrBIMtastic it is.

          Sure the tyres should be offset like bricks. This would not use a normal curtain wall, but rather a "pattern-based curtain wall system" with an associated diamond "pattern". See Introduction to Pattern-Based Curtain System Families in Autodesk Revit Architecture - YouTube

            AH, of course.

              ... not saying I've actually tried this myself, but it should be possible.
