Video: Welcome

(music playing) Hi, I'm Eric Wing. Welcome to this workshop on creating stairs and railings in Revit Architecture 2013. I've been working in the field of architecture, engineering and construction for over 20 years and have enjoyed seeing how Revit has evolved over those years to be a rich, and full featured BIM management program. In addition to my work managing BIM projects at CNS companies in Syracuse New York, I also regularly speak on the topic of BIM and construction, and I'm an instructor at the Rochester Institute of Technology.

(music playing) Hi, I'm Eric Wing. Welcome to this workshop on creating stairs and railings in Revit Architecture 2013. I've been working in the field of architecture, engineering and construction for over 20 years and have enjoyed seeing how Revit has evolved over those years to be a rich, and full featured BIM management program. In addition to my work managing BIM projects at CNS companies in Syracuse New York, I also regularly speak on the topic of BIM and construction, and I'm an instructor at the Rochester Institute of Technology.

This course is designed to teach you as many aspects of how to create and modify stairs and railings as possible. Stairs in Revit actually come together like stairs on a job site: piece by piece. We will begin by adding a simple U-shaped staircase, and then jump right into making modifications to the landings and the railing terminations. You will see how all this is accomplished and also explore some of the design issues you may face in the real world. We'll literally draft a radial winding staircase and turn it into a model. From there we address the components that come together to make an awesome staircase.

This of course is also packed full of families, so you'll see how to create stairs and railings in the most efficient and effective way possible. We're going to model ranging from a simple tread nosing to a complex landing that is fully parametric to an in-place family, radial glass panel railing. We'll also drill down into some of the new 2013 features, such as U-shaped winders, custom stringers and my new favorite (LAUGH) full-step spiral staircases through our Revit files at a company each chapter. So, if you're an advanced user or are just getting started, this workshop is gauged for your learning style. You can either jump in at the beginning or move around. The material's there for when you want it.

So, let's get started.
