Learn the basics of Revit Architecture 2018 in this dedicated course.
- [Paul] Hello, my name is Paul F. Aubin, and welcome to this course where we cover all of the essential skills that you'll need to know to use Revit for architecture. Revit is the widely recognized industry standard computer application for architects and building design professionals. In this course, we'll learn about building information modeling, or BIM, as we explore what Revit has to offer. We'll explore the basics like walls, columns, doors, and windows, and we'll build floor slabs and roofs and learn how these forms interact with other elements such as the surrounding walls, elevator shafts, or even roof dormers in meaningful ways.
And what building would be complete without stairs, railings, plumbing, and lighting fixtures? We'll even create our own custom pool table component from scratch. But Revit is not just about modeling. I'll show you how you can annotate your projects with text and dimensions and other standard architectural symbols. Revit allows us to generate live schedules of just about any part of the building model to access critical design information. We'll create construction details and compose sheets for printing out all of our document sets. So if you're ready to begin your journey into the world of Revit architecture, you've come to the right place.
Let's get started.

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 drawing so all the components are perfectly understood, and learn how to output sheets to DWF, PDF, or AutoCAD.
