- [Voiceover] Autodesk provides an Autodesk Certified Professional Exam. This course covers most of the topics required by that exam. Therefore, if you are preparing for the exam, I recommend that you watch the entire course from start to finish. However, we have also provided a downloadable PDF document that maps specific movies to examine objectives, as published on the Autodesk website. So, feel free to use that document and skip around to different topics of interest to you. There are a few topics not covered by Revit Essential Training, but they are covered by other courses here in the Lynda.com library.
Please access the PDF for complete details. You can download the PDF from the main course page, in the same location as the exercise files. You do not need to be a premium member in order to download this PDF.
AuthorPaul F. Aubin
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 author Paul F. Aubin helps you dive into 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 drawings so all the components are clearly understood, and learn how to output sheets to DWF, PDF, or AutoCAD.
