  1. You have a special place in heaven made for you. Bless your efforts! Much Love!

  2. Great video man! Keep doing it.


    thank you the video was very helpfull

  4. i really like your sharing

  5. can you give us the link to the container family?

  6. nice video

  7. Only problem I have is the void cut won't show in floor plan, neither in the family nor the project :/ I've been trying to solve it in visibility/graphics but I can't find the right item.

  8. balkan how do u get the cut in doors and windows

  9. very nice..

  10. For those interested, I've found the best way to model the container walls is as a sweep. This means you can use standard Revit doors/windows ect. and the openings are created automatically. All you have to do is create a custom profile family, I prefer to draw the entire wall as a single profile.

  11. Actully there is a parametric plug in from bimbakery called shipping container as ready object u just modify it according to your needs and its for Archicad .

  13. Sir plz make a video of making Our own contaiber

  14. чувак ты просто лучший спасибо огромное тебе !! я просто думал как эти вырезы сделать в семействе чтобы они были связаны а окозалось никак только выдавливанием.

  15. hi sir
    i have one question regarding the visibility &graphic
    i need to change the visibility and graphic for each level plan view and 3d view for a type of elements (like furniture) ( i mean if i change the visibilty and graphic for furniture for floor plan level 1 (to do so, i can see the furniture elements in fllor plan level 1), but, when i jump to the other view(like 3d view), i cannot see the furniture elements (i need to do the same step again)

    is that right?

    i think this is not a smart method?
    how do you do that?

  16. Amazing my friend
