(swish) - Hello. My name is Paul Aubin and welcome to Revit Architecture 2011 Essential Training. Over the last few years, Revit has taken the building industry by storm. Every day more and more firms are adding Revit to their workflow and one thing is certain. It often has something to do with BIM. BIM stands for Building Information Modeling and is one of the topics that we will explore in this course. Let's start with basics like walls, columns, doors and windows.
We'll explore how these items are added to your model, understand their association to levels and grids, manipulate their key properties and settings. I'll show you how to create a topographic surface upon which your building can sit. We'll even do this from imported CAD data such as an AutoCAD file from your consulting engineer. We'll put a roof over our head as we look at Revit's roofing tools. Do you use curtain walls in your designs? Well Revit has lots of functionality here for us to explore as well. And what building model would be complete without stairs, railings, toilet fixtures, and other equipment and furnishings.
But using Revit is not just about modeling. I'll show you how you can annotate your drawings, called views in Revit, with text, dimensions, and other architectural symbols. As you'll see, there's quite a bit required to create a complete virtual model of your building project. So if you're ready to start your journey into the world of Revit architecture, you've come to the right place. Let's get started.
