- Exercise Files
- [Voiceover] If you're a premium member of the Lynda.com library, you have access to the exercise files used throughout this course. We've provided two complete versions of this course. This version is in metric units and provides metric exercise files. We have another version of the course that's in imperial units with imperial exercise files. So feel free to watch the version of the course that matches the units that you use in your day to day work. I've provided the exercise files in a folder and I've placed that folder on my desktop. Within that folder are folders for each chapter throughout the course, and when you open those various chapter folders you'll find mostly Revit files, but on occasion you'll see files of other formats as well.
I'll instruct you as to what to do with those various files in each of the movies that follow. If you're not a premium member of the Lynda.com library you don't have access to the exercise files, but you can follow along anyway using your own files. So with that bit of housekeeping out of the way, let's get started with Revit Essential Training.
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.
