In Detail

Commercial Design Using Autodesk Revit 2017 is designed for the architectural student using Revit 2017. The intent is to provide the student with a well-rounded knowledge of tools and techniques for use in both school and industry. This text takes a project based approach to learning Revit's architectural tools in which the student develops a three story office building. Each book comes with access to numerous video presentations of the written material. General building codes and industry standard conventions are covered in a way that is applicable to the current exercise.

The first two chapters are intended to get the reader familiar with the user interface and many of the common menus and tools of Revit 2017. A small office is created in chapter two to show just how easy it is to get started using Revit. By the end of chapter two the student will be excited and prepared to take on a much larger project.

Throughout the rest of the book the student develops a three story office building. The drawings start with the floor plans and develop all the way to photo-realistic renderings like the one on the cover of this book. In these chapters many of the architectural tools and features of Revit 2017 are covered in greater detail.

Each book includes access to extensive video training created by author Daniel Stine. The videos make it easy to see the menu selections and will make learning Revit straightforward and simple. At the start of each chapter the reader is prompted to watch a video that previews the topics that will be covered in the proceeding chapter. This allows the reader to be familiar with the menu selections and techniques before they begin the tutorial.
