Revit Architecture


Hi! I'm Brian Myers and welcome to Designing a House in Revit Architecture. In this course, we'll look at the process of modeling a home in Revit Architecture. I'll start by showing you how to draw your exterior walls for your home, then we'll use the floor tools to create the various types of floors you'll find in a typical residence. We'll then see how to create a residential roof using the Roof tools. We'll be covering all these features, plus plenty of other tools and techniques to generate your ceiling, site plans, renderings and more. Now let's get started with Designing a House in Revit Architecture.
