I’ve been working with the train car quite a bit and figuring out how to model the complex shape in Revit. I finally decided to model it as a roofing system that is extruded based on a curve. The curve would be the outline of the shell.
Looking down the table the train car looks very long and narrow. You can also see how I modeled the car shell. I changed the roof material to glass to create the windows. The tube effect that goes all the way around the exterior seems to be too much, as well as a detail that would be difficult to construct. There would also be very little light control with this option.looking from the bar towards the communal table. Very futuristic look. It’s a start and I’m happy to have the shell modeled, but there will be a lot of work to refine this and make it what I want it to be.
