  • Teaches you to create full 3D architectural models and set them up in working drawings

In Detail

Autodesk Revit is a powerful Building Information Modeling (BIM) program that works the way architects think. From preliminary design through design development, and into construction documents, the program streamlines the design process with a central 3D model. Changes made in one view update across all views and on the printable sheets. This Student Guide is designed to teach you the Autodesk Revit functionality as you would work with it in the design process. You begin by learning about the user interface and the Autodesk Revit commands for design development followed by those available for construction documentation.

Since building projects tend to be extremely complex, Autodesk Revit is a necessarily complex program. The objective of Autodesk Revit 2014 Fundamentals for Architectural Design is to enable students to create full 3D architectural project models and set them up in working drawings. This training guide focuses on basic tools that the majority of users need to work with the architectural features of Autodesk Revit.

Topics covered:

  • Understand the purpose of Building Information Management (BIM) and how it is applied in Revit
  • Navigating the Revit Architecture workspace and interface
  • Working with the basic drawing and editing tools in Revit
  • Creating Levels and Grids as datum elements for the model
  • Creating a 3D building model with walls, curtain walls, windows, and doors
  • Adding floors and roofs to the building model
  • Creating component-based and custom stair
  • Detailing Reflected Ceiling Plans with ceilings and lighting fixtures
  • Adding component features, such as furniture and equipment
  • Setting up sheets for plotting with text, dimensions, details, tags, and schedules
  • Creating details
