Find out how to create compelling architectural designs using the modeling tools in Autodesk Revit software. In this course, author Paul F. Aubin demonstrates the entire building information modeling (BIM) workflow, from creating the design model to publishing a completed project. The course 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 plotting and exporting your drawings.
I'd like to take a quick moment to talk to you about file format issues. I've got a page open here from the Autodesk WikiHelp and it's talking about backward compatibility with Revit. It's really important that you understand that each release of Revit is a new file format. So what I mean by that is if you're working in Revit 2013, you can't collaborate back and forth with the user who is using a previous release. So all of the members of the project team have to be on a 2013 release, they don't all have to be on Revit Architecture. You can have different members of the team on Revit Architecture, or Revit Structure, or Revit MEP or even the complete product Revit that includes all three disciplines.
It's just that everyone has to be on the 2013 version. If you take a 2012 file for example and upgrade it to 2013, there's no way to save it back again to 2013. So it's really important that everybody on the team understand that and the easiest solution is to just have a team meeting at the start of the project and make a decision about what file formats going to be used for the duration of the project.
