Secrets of: Revit Conceptual Massing

Revit Architecture 2010 has some very powerful conceptual design tools, but for those migrating from earlier versions of the software using these new tools can be daunting at first. If you want to understand how to create flexible, parametric building forms this class is for you. We will cover the essentials of the conceptual mass editing environment, as well as how to create sophisticated organic forms. This session is a subset of course offerings on Revit Architecture by sdb consulting. Seating is limited, so sign up today.

Course Length: 2 hours + 30 minutes Q&A period



This is a deep dive into the possibilities of the form making tools in Revit Architecture 2010, and how they can be used in iterative design scenarios to produce many flexible design studies quickly.


The objective of this course is to enable you to successfully plan, construct and parameterize conceptual mass families for use in your projects. Pre-rationalized surfaces and creating re-useable flexible panel families will be explored, as well as how to then use information from the massing model for developing your designs.

Topics Covered:

  • The Conceptual Design environment
  • The Importance of building jigs
  • Pros and Cons of choosing a modeling method
  • Working with legacy massing objects
  • From box to organic form
  • Subtleties of the environment
  • Surface rationalization
  • Creating and extending panel families
  • Extracting data for design analysis

You will receive specific details on signing in to the web course upon completion of the purchase. A detailed agenda and a link to downloadable datasets will be distributed to all registered attendees prior to the start of the class.
