Teaches the core building information modeling (BIM) skills you need to complete solid architectural drawings in Revit 2014.
- [Voiceover] Hello. My name is Paul F. Aubin, and welcome to Revit Architecture Essential Training. Over the last decade, Revit has become the de facto 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: Is this course valid for all of the Revit architecture products? Are there any movies in this course that do not work in Revit LT?
A: This course is designed to work for anybody learning any of the Revit architecture products, including Autodesk Revit (available as part of the "Autodesk Building Design Suite"product), Autodesk Revit Architecture, and Autodesk Revit LT.
However, some individual movies in the course are not valid in Revit LT, due to the limited feature set of that application. Those movies are:
Chapter 3 - Accessing multi-user worksharing projects
Chapter 5 - Establishing shared coordinates
Chapter 6 - Using the shape editing tools to create a flat roof
Chapter 7 - Working with stairs
