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.
Hello! My name is Paul Aubin and welcome to Revit Architecture 2011 Essential Training. Over the last few years, Revit has taken the building industry by storm. Every day more and more firms are adding Revit to their workflow, and one thing is certain: It often has something to do with BIM. BIM stands for Building Information Modeling, and it is one of the topics that we will explore in this course. We'll start with basics like walls, columns, doors and windows. We'll explore how these items are added to your model, understand their association to levels and grids, manipulate their key properties and settings.
I'll show you how to create a topographic surface, upon which your building can sit. We'll even do this from imported CAD data, such as an AutoCAD file from your consulting engineer. We'll put a roof over our head, as we look at Revit's roofing tools. Do you use curtain walls in your designs? Well, Revit has lots of functionality here for us to explore, as well. And what Building model would be complete without stairs, railings, toilet fixtures, and other equipment and furnishings? But using Revit is not just about modeling. I'll show you how you can annotate your drawings - called views in Revit - with text, dimensions, and other architectural symbols.
As you will see, there is quite a bit required to create a complete virtual model of your building project, so if you are ready to start your journey into the world of Revit Architecture, you've come to the right place. Let's get started!
