This introductory Revit Architecture course covered the Revit environment, modeling, annotations and outputting sheets. Further courses cover the Family Editor (which lets you work on standard components like doors or furniture), rendering and advanced modeling. You can also enroll in a course that covers the entire house design and modeling process. Course tutor Paul Aubin recommends several books on the subject in this video covering your next steps with Revit Architecture 2015.
…So we've reached the end our exploration of the Revit essentials.…And now, you're probably wondering what comes next.…Well, let me offer you some suggestions.…I'd like to direct you first to the lynda.com library.…We have several other courses here on Revit architecture that you can explore.…We have the Revit Family Editor, which goes deep into creating family content.…We have Revit Architecture Rendering, where we focus…on creating presentations and renderings in 3D models.…We have Advanced Modeling, which spends a lot of time…looking at the conceptual modeling environment and other advanced features.…
And we have Designing a House in Revit Architecture, which goes…start to finish through the process of building a small house project.…Now, in addition to that, there are several other online resources.…There's of course my website.…I have information here on a variety of resources, including my offerings…here at lynda.com, and books, and…services, and other training that I provide.…And feel free to use the contact form over here and drop me a line…

Q: Which versions of Revit should I use with this course?
A: This course is written for users of Revit Architecture 2015 and Revit LT 2015. Because Revit LT does not have all of the same features as Revit Architecture, some movies in this course will not be relevant for Revit LT. Additionally, there are some topics that are relevant in both versions, but the button layout or location of those tools are different. In those cases, the features and procedures for Revit Architecture are shown in the course.
