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.
So I should mention: It's pretty important that if you're working with an extended Revit project team, that everybody on the project team be on the same file format of Revit. Now I'm not saying the same version. You can work with engineers who are using Revit Structure and other engineers who are using Revit MEP, but everybody has got to be on 2011. And the reason for this is each new release of Revit is a new file format. So if you try to share data between the team that has some of the folks who are using 2010, for example, and some are using 2011, it's not going to work, because Revit will try and upgrade the file whenever you open it or link it, and then the next time you send it back to the person that's on lower version, they won't be able to open it at all.
So you've got to have a meeting at the early stages of the project and just decide what version everybody on the team is going to be working on.
