Revit Architecture is a powerful, complex piece of Building Information Modeling (BIM) software — but there’s no reason why it needs to be difficult to learn. In this course veteran trainer and author Eric Wing takes you step by step through the process of building a five-story, multiple-use office building. You will learn how to create a model, use different views, work with the Revit tools, and add dimensions and annotations. Then you’ll delve into details like floors, roofs, ceilings, stairs, walls, and structural items like grids, columns, and foundations. You’ll end up with a complete, realistic design — and the skills you need to start creating your own.
Discover how to create detailed architectural models and documentation in Revit Structure. This course includes an introduction to the user interface; hands-on experience drawing and editing Revit elements; viewing and manipulating objects in 3D; and producing design documentation from a Revit model and imported CAD entities. Author Brian Myers provides detailed instructions for building the most common structural components, such as columns, walls, foundations, beams and bracings, and ramps and stairs, which you can recreate in your own architectural drawings.
In Revit Architecture 2011 Essential Training, author Paul F. Aubin shows how to create compelling architectural designs using the modeling tools in Revit. This course covers the entire building information modeling (BIM) workflow, from design concept to publishing. It also covers navigating the Revit interface, modeling basic building features such as walls, doors and windows, working with sketch-based components such as roofs and stairs, annotating designs with dimensions and callouts, and adding 3D geometry. Exercise files are included with the course.
