    How can I model a curved an individual room module with curved edges

    Hello,
    I've attached some images below of the type of shape that I would like to create. They were modeled using rhino but I want to build them in revit so that I can edit the walls (adding windows and doors). Is there a way that I can create a movable module with curved edges like this?
    Thank you!!

    If you want to ad doors and windows I'd say create it with 2 walls and I guess a roof by extrusion and a floor with slab edges. Problem is you can not really copy or move them to any level, becasue the roof and floor are fixed to a level.

    Making them a Generic Model will give you that function, but you will have to model in each window in each Generic Model.

      I'd try wall sweeps to see if that does what you want. Make a profile for the top and bottom and apply them as needed. As long as the walls, floor, ceiling, and sweeps all have the same material, they should join together cleanly like that.

        What are they going to be in the real world?

            Thank you for the responses! The boxes are a room module that will be stacked to for a museum design. They are concrete 'display boxes' that will act as gallery spaces. I am going to try the wall sweep function but I am not sure how to create the curved profile and am currently looking for tutorials. Thanks Again for the help!

              If you want to stack them, more or less randomly, I think I would go with generic models. Looks like there is no need for all sorts of details, or BIM and as I said before using walls, roofs and floors will not let you stack them easily. If you make a family with a few paramaters, you should be able to adjust the position and size of the windows by just typing in some numbers and the same goes for the outer dimensions of each box.

              Tempted to make an example, but I really need to get some sleep.

                If you are just looking for something conceptual I would model them as in place walls. If you need to begin documenting them then I would recommend following snowyweston's advice and begin sketching out the detail. Will this all be poured at the same time? Will there be a construction joint at the floor? Those details can begin to tell you which assemblies and modeling tools in Revit will best suit your modeling for documentation. A well modeled building is a well documented building!
