    thanks Mark for the info.

    I've got some troubles with it. Nucleus tab is here, but when I open a project, it disappears. Did any of you have experimented this?

      Nucleus is used in the mass family editor. It does not operate in the project environment. So, you create the shape in the mass editor and then use the nucleus tab to load the final accepted shape into the project.

          This thing is the Bees Knees. Hooboy are we gonna have fun with this one.

          I was trying to do similar stuff in Blender, where it's a lot harder, then bring that into Revit to make cool shapes. Very very excited to be able to do it directly in Revit now!

            I just worry that it goes the way of Newport. From what I can see, if you use it for real work and Autodesk doesn't make a real product out of it by the end of 2011, you are hosed. Seems risky to depend on it, and yet it looks like a very useful tool. I hate decisions like that.

                Heck, I worry that Autodesk's development process for Revit has become so complex and convoluted that we'll only see any real progress when Factory people step outside of that system like they did when making Vasari.

                If Labs and Vasari can make sudden cool changes to Revit, yet the Revit team itself can't, well, it's worrisome. It takes the Revit development team years to roll out even smallish feature changes, and yet we turn around and the Labs team is cranking out huge cool stuff that frankly just doesn't seem possible within Revit yet works a charm. WTF?

                  Hi guys,

                  Finally manage to deal with it. Cool stuff, but difficult to document such shapes.

                  Give a try, walls by face works fine on the mass created.

                  :wine:

                    Hmmm. It all seems too good to be true.
                    I will watch with anticipation and see where this goes.
                    Why do we have to use yet another program/plugin with Revit? Why can this not be included? Sure, these are all free now, but for how long? I can see people adopting these tools only to find the 2012 versions suddenly cost $$$$.
