    Challenge: 7™ chair by Arne Jacobsen in native Revit Geometry

    Here´s a real challenge for everyone who´s up for some :banghead:

    Modelling the Series 7™ chair by Arne Jacobsen in native Revit Geometry.
    Beeing able to schedule the finished family as Furniture would be preferred, but if you must use masses, so be it...

    I´ve attached a 3D dwg model of the chair, and you can find further info @

      Now that's what I call a challenge...

        Well, this is one of those where, if it gets done in masses I guess that is kinda cool, but if it isn't a furniture family it is totally useless in the real world. Then again, if push really comes to shove this is where I might model something representational, that takes up the right amount of floor space and is recognizable, but doesn't have the compound curves and such, and show that at Course & Medium LOD, and the (Gack, cough, WTF Autodesk, why force me to do this?!!!) use an inserted DWG (in the Family) at Fine LOD for renderings only. And probably I would do it in two different families so I only jack up my model if I really need the rendering.

        That said, this is gonna be another very entertaining and enlightening thread. Like Zack's BuildZ stuff. I may never get to use it in a project, but such fun to see anyway.

          Extra points if you can run a Vasari Nucleus simulation which shows the effect of a stack of chairs being hit by a 2tonne rhinoceros at a speed of 49kph...

            Wow, this is for sure a real challenge! Well, will have a go at it my self, but will be looking forward to see what you guys come up with..


              I've got a "challenge" as well... who can model in Revit native geometry (not masses) the following:

              Tesla Model S

              Apple iMac 27"
              The new iMac. 7 vibrant colors. Impossibly thin design. 24-inch 4.5K Retina display. The best camera, mics, and speakers in a Mac. Supercharged by M1.

              Herman Miller Mirra Office Chair
              The Mirra 2 office chair has dynamic surfaces that respond to your slightest movements. It balances immediate comfort and personalized ergonomics.

              When you're done with those, I have some other "challenges" for you all...


                I'm pretty sure i've seen the iMac floating around on the internet, haven't checked that it's 100% native Revit..?

                The car is IMHO just ridiculous to try and model in Revit, but would be cool to do - just because you can (maybe) - but still

                The chair is a real good challenge, just crazy design, would be nice to try.



                  I´ve got the iMac somewhere in my archive too...

                  The Car may be ridiculous, but it´s already been proven possible by Marcello Sgambelluri (Who have also done a Elephant!)

                  And yes, it´s native Revit Geometry...

                    Marcello is truly an artist! Haven't seen the car before though, and i'm just speechless. Amazing work! AFIK, he uses the Massing Tool, correct? Still impressive though..
