Making a Seamless Sphere in Revit


  1. Make a rectangular extrusion form
  2. Make a revolve form using funny looking profile shown above - switch to void
  3. Cut geometry, and then adjust grips as necessary to make it look nice

  2. The issue seems to come when you want to apply a divided surface to it. It doesn't seem as if using voids to carve up shapes works for curtain paterns :(

  3. The form is brilliant. Old school modeling! Build more and take away what you don't need. The curtain pattern issue really chaps my hide. TG for the 2013 repeat tool.
