Tony, Architect • Jul 5
Lucille, Modlar Administrator

Hi Tony, Most of our objects are password protected to avoid errors when the user tries to directly open the object file. You can load object into the project library and use it in the project normally without opening it. You can change the settings through the object interface settings as well. Please let me know if you need any further help...

How to model and build these

Alaa, Student • Jun 27

I know programs like revit and others can make 3D models for these curves but how to apply it on reality? Do they use just cables tell connect the curved wooden ceiling with the slab? Or they used other materials and techniques.

Jeffrey, Student

Hi Alaa As you already know, there are many ways to obtain this design. Option 1: Cables with a structure perpendicular to the finish material "wood" Or Option 2: It would be a grid for suspended ceiling with cables. But the best ways is to look for the specification of the product from a company of your area. Take care https://www.google.ca/...
