    I was bored slightly with my time off.

    So I built myself a hunting stand, I doubt it will get built this year, but used the chance to learn a little more about structual beams/pieces, and tilted columns. Hopefully I get to see this guy this year...

    I still don't care for the way revit pulls back all the ends of my pieces and then I have to adjust the coping distance. Sometimes having to add to the extension distance to get things to attach properly. I didn't use any beam systems yet... each peice was placed separetly. I made a few schedules in an attempt to quantify how much of each material to buy, but doubting its accuracy when it comes to some compound beveled ends. And stairs and railing of course don't quatify either.

    Do I need a eye check, or did you actually model the nails..?? Looking cool :beer:

      What is interesting though: did you also model the bloodspatter from virtually wacking your thumb when building it?

        blood spatter? where's that? no... didn't think of that. hmmmm... I'll see what I can do

        yes I modeled a couple of the screws, I don't trust nails out in the weather. I had the bottom of a stand drop out on me that was attached to trees with nails. Weird, auxillerating, and fear all at once. and then shock, pain, anger afterward. Anyway, I was thinking of doing a take off for screws and factoring in the weight of the screws to calculate how many pounds I'd need to buy. I need to go back an finish screwing together the wall pieces and sheathing yet. To boot the screws even cut a void in the lumber.

        I wasn't going to model the screws but my brother poked fun about how detailed it was, so I poked fun back by making it more detailed and put screws , trees, forest floor, materials and rendered it for him.

        Also on the to do list is adding some kind of window system and a propane heater After that I need to find a way to make it real comfy incase I get a bit sleepy from getting up too early in the morning.
