Drawing a Curtain in Revit

Drawing a Curtain in Revit

It is a common question that often comes up, especially with Architectural Revit users that do not have exposure to the creation of Adaptive components: “How do I go about modelling a curtain for a window?

In this video I show how to use a little grid to generate a spline that looks a bit like a since curve. One is created for the base of the curtain, and another for the top. The splines are driven by Adaptive points, which means that adjustment to the curtain may even be done within a project (to make the curtain look as if it being blown by the wind. Material type parameter is also added.

Some truly great renderings can be achieved in either Revit or Lumion. Why not try to draw a curtain? And if you feel you need more training, remember to come and do the Revit Intermediate course with us?
