To a large extent, buildings consist of repetitions of identical or sufficiently similar elements. In its previous versions, Autodesk Revit software already included a number of tools that allow for repeating elements, albeit with some geometric or category-specific limitations, such as arrays, divided surfaces. The new Divide & Repeat workflow of Autodesk Revit 2013 offers a more open and versatile functionality that can be used in a host of different contexts. This class discusses various patterns for creating Divide & Repeat rigs consisting of a combination of reference points, divided paths, and divided surfaces. We will take a detailed look at each pattern and its practical application in architectural design by examining examples of iconic buildings and identifying how certain aspects of those buildings could be created with the Divide & Repeat functionality. The class also touches on the methodological implications of creating rigs and components for the discussed patterns.
