Build your Revit skills from the ground up. Learn the building information modeling (BIM) techniques you need to complete solid architectural projects in Revit 2015.
- [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.

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.
