Temple

Hi all ..
Attached is a model of the basic framing of the central room of a Tibetan/Mongolian (influenced) temple I am currently preparing the working drawings for. It will be built in the spring of 2009. It is modeled with MoI (with a little help from Rhino for some splits). I completed the original conceptual design last year using Rhino and Flamingo as I had not discovered MoI yet.

The framing shown on only one quadrant of the roofs is for illustration for the building contractor ... a complete framing plan in perspective view would be pretty confusing but two dimensional drawings cannot make it very clear by themselves.

I thought it might be interesting to post a model with all straight lines (in contrast to most of the postings here).

cheers and an early happy solstice ... it is -20 C here today.

That idea looks like a great new challenge for me in MoI.

In Adelaide our temperature today will be about +24C---cold for us at this time of the year when we often get 40C+ summer temperatures.

And you will have a more detailed fine volume if you disable Hidden lines ;)

Yes, that's true, Pilou

On the other hand that's one of the things I like about MoI. This is a reference drawing for the carpenters and I want them to be able to see the hidden lines to understand the construction more clearly.

If I wanted a complete solid I would use a rendering tool.

Thank you for your comment. :)

Hi Eric, it's a cool design and a great result, it looks like you put that screenshot script to some good use there!

I hope you can post some photos of the construction later, it is always fun to see that stage too.

I guess you and my carpenter son would shudder in disgust at my effort.

But, on the basis that this example is the hard part, I was quite pleased at how MoI worked---as usual!

Go to your freezer, scrape some of that fluffy white frosty stuff off from around the cube maker. Same difference! :)

Hi Michael ..
I will post pictures next year but in the meantime, this was an earlier design study using Rhino and Flamingo.
The final results should look something like this
cheers

Hi Eric, will the building be used as an actual Buddhist temple?

It looks great! It will be a lot of fun to see the construction too.

Hi Michael ...
Yes ... it is in the Kootenay mountains of British Columbia, Canada. They bought a big house and some land a few years ago and the original work included renovating the house and adding to it to create a meditation retreat and teaching center. The teacher (Rinpoche Zazep Tulku) hopes to have his 60th birthday celebration on the floor of the new temple next spring (2009) ... with a following big work retreat scheduled to put up the timber frame. I will get pictures of the process.
cheers,
eric
