During the conceptual phase, create masses to explore design ideas and perform early analyses. As the design matures, manipulate these forms to use as the basis for more detailed architecture.
The Revit conceptual design environment provides flexibility early in the design process for architects, structural engineers, and interior designers to express ideas and create parametric massing families that can be integrated into building information modeling (BIM). Use this environment to directly manipulate a design’s points, edges, and surfaces into buildable forms.
The designs created in the conceptual design environment are massing families that can be used in the Revit project environment as the basis from which you create more detailed architecture by applying walls, roofs, floors, and curtain systems. You can also use the project environment to schedule floor areas, and to conduct preliminary spatial analysis.
Apply divisions on paths, form edges, and surfaces with nodes to host components and component arrays.
