    Modelling Radio Mast/lattice structure

    Hi all, I am novice-intermediate at Revit and have a question... I have to model a radio tower 45m tall with a reasonable complex structure, I have tried building it up in 2D plan and 3D view however to add the last few sections is very difficult in 3D as the structure is now overcrowded.. Please find the paper drawing and the model so far in attachments.

    Is there an easier way to add the few extra elements? ( they are circles in red)


    Many Thanks

    Oliver

    Zoom in closer in the view to add the details as necessary. I'd probably do it in 3D myself.

    Temporarily hiding/isolating elements will also help.

    It might be useful to break some elements in some points also.

    I see no reason why you wouldnt be able to do this in revit, I've done very complex and finer detailed structure than this no problems. Totally achievable even for an intermediate.
