Picture Above is Louvre , Skylight and Atrium detail

In this next post we work on the skylight, louvres detail and ceilings around atrium and skylights. I recorded the video early this week on Sunday but i had a nasty cold so i did not do the sound until today(hopefully there is no time delay.) also I'm trying a new higher resolution video so that you can go to larger screen view and still be in focus, hopefully its a bit better than before.

13.3 Modern House - Design Development P1

In this post we continue to develop the design by adding more features, refining others and begin to understand what our design potentials are. What we do in this post is

1) Redefine the roof edge by adding a thinner roof profile to the edge
2) Add Railing around atrium by using the Curtain wall tool
3) Add the Staircases and modify a few elements
4) Edge curtain wall that is automatically embedded (cut out of host wall)
5) Apply and review curtain wall mullion tool settings

13.2 Modern House - Basic Design Shape

Hey All

In this video we start to develop the project, we put down the basic shape of the building, the idea is to get the rooms and shapes into roughly the correct position along with the general floors, roofs and walls. From here we will develop the design further with more walls, roofs and floors types in the next post, but this gives us a first look at how the building might look.

In this post i only use 
4" (100mm) generic wall
12" (300mm) generic wall 
12" (300mm) Generic Floor
12" (300mm) Generic Roof and
Roof Curtain Glazing

13.1 Modern House - File Setup

Hello All,

Below is the start of the next chapter(Modern House), We setup
1) Levels
2) Grids
3) Guide Reference Planes
4) Worksets
5) Central file and local file

The idea with this chapter is to mimic the real life process that would happen in most architectural practices. We build a more basic model to start off with (design model or place holder model) these are quicker to produce, allow more flexibility with design, provide the require level of information such as areas, presentation plans, section and elevation, 3D views and renderings. This allows the client or stakeholders to assess the projects viability, cost, style, etc. once the project has been approved we move on to the second model type, the Construction model, these go into more detail, are more complex which makes them less flexible but provide all the information that contractors needs to build the project.

My Plan is to spend;
3-4 Videos developing the placeholder/design model
1-2 Videos on presentation views/renders
10-12 Videos on construction
Proposed Grid 
Proposed Grid with 4'-0"(1200mm) intermediate reference planes 
Proposed Levels
