Train car progress

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.

Initial floor plan, working with a communal table idea.  A lot of space seems to be devoted to circulation.  This will need to change in future versions.train.car.rvt_2014-Apr-05_03-45-37PM-000_3D_View_6

 

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.train.car.rvt_2014-Apr-05_03-23-21PM-000_3D_View_3looking 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.
