Revit Architecture 2015 Essential Training
Video duration: 0s 11h 4m Beginner


Build your Revit skills from the ground up. In this course, Paul F. Aubin teaches you the core building information modeling (BIM) techniques you need to complete solid architectural projects in Revit 2015. First, get comfortable with the Revit environment, and learn to set up a project and add the grids, levels, and dimensions that will anchor your design. Then get to modeling: adding walls, doors, and windows; creating and mirroring groups; linking to external assets and DWG files; and working with floors, roofs, and ceilings. Paul also shows advanced techniques for modeling stairs, complex walls, and partially obscured building elements, as well as adding rooms and solid geometry. Finally, discover how to annotate your drawing so all the components are perfectly understood, and learn how to output sheets to DWF, PDF, or AutoCAD.

Topics include:
  • What is BIM?
  • Understanding Revit element hierarchy
  • Navigating views
  • Creating a new project from a template
  • Adding walls, doors, and windows
  • Adding plumbing fixtures and other components
  • Linking AutoCAD DWG files
  • Rotating and aligning Revit links
  • Working with footprint and extrusion roofs
  • Adding openings
  • Adding railings and extensions to stairs
  • Creating stacked and curtain walls
  • Hiding and isolating objects
  • Adding rooms
  • Creating schedule views and tags
  • Adding text and dimensions
  • Creating new families
  • Using reference planes, parameters, and constraints
  • Plotting and creating a PDF


- [Voiceover] Hello, my name is Paul F. Aubin and welcome to Revit Architecture Essential Training. Over the last decade Revit has become the defacto standard computer application for architects and building design professionals. In this course, we'll start with basics like walls, columns, doors, and windows. We'll build floor slabs and roofs, and learn how these forms interact with one another like the surrounding walls, elevator shafts, and even roof dormers. And what building would be complete without stairs, railings, plumbing and lighting fixtures. We'll even create our own custom components, like a custom pool table, but using Revit is not just about modeling, I'll show you how you can annotate your drawings with text, dimensions, and other standard architectural symbols.

Revit allows us to generate live schedules of just about any part of our building, we'll create construction details, and compose sheets for printing out our document sets. So if you're ready to begin your journey into the world of Revit architecture, let's get started.
