Advanced Modeling in Revit Architecture elaborates on the basics of core elements in Revit, such as walls, floors, roofs, and curtain walls, and digs into specialized features such as in-place families, adaptive components, and the massing environment. Author Paul F. Aubin guides designers into thinking both in and out of the box, through discovering and applying industry standard best practices, employing creative and sometimes unconventional techniques and procedures, and finding ways to make models serve multiple concurrent project goals.
Hi! My name is Paul F. Aubin and I am thrilled to be here at lynda.com again teaching Advanced Modeling in Revit Architecture. We have an exciting course planned for you. The conceptual modeling environment is a dynamic, free-form 3D modeling workspace. I'll be presenting the course in Revit 2012, but rest assured that most of the features I present will work nearly the same in releases 2011 and 2010. I'll start with creating basic forms, modifying forms, and the difference between model and reference-based forms. From there it gets really fun, working in the context of a theoretical new museum of modern art facility, we will look at applying geometry to the massing surfaces, configure divided surfaces, apply custom curtain panels, and use adaptive components to refine the many architectural details.
We will discuss traditional forms, such as dormers and moldings and build contemporary forms, like a custom grand stair and free-form mural wall devoted to modern street art. So if you're ready to begin your journey into Revit's exciting conceptual massing environment, you have come to the right place. Let's dive in.
