Revit is a powerful and popular computer-aided design software used to design and document buildings.
One of its powerful and compelling features is its ability to create photo-realistic renderings directly in the software without any add-ins or extra features. You simply open a 3D view of the model and click render. (OK—there are a few more steps than that; check out my new lynda.com course Rendering with Revit.)
Better still, we can create both static renderings (like a photograph) and animations.
I’m going to show you how to create a Revit walkthrough.

If you thought Revit revisions were anything less than thrilling, this comic-book style tutorial will make you think again.
Our CAD author Paul Aubin created this fun super-story to liven up your learning on the sheet issues and revisions feature in Revit—including new features of Revit 2015.

This month has shown the release of several lynda.com Revit Architecture related courses, further expanding our ever growing list.
Paul Aubin, our ever-reliable and popular Revit author, has just released Advanced Modeling in Revit Architecture. In Revit, simple objects, such as walls and floors, are reasonably easy to construct. Modeling more complex objects, however, can be a bit of a challenge. Paul Aubin helps you think both inside and outside the box to use Revit’s modeling tools to create sophisticated and detailed models. He also digs into some more specialized Revit features such as in-place Families, topography, and the Massing Environment. The Advanced Modeling in Revit Architecture course is great for anyone wanting to add more detail to their Revit projects.
In this video from chapter one of the Advanced Modeling in Revit Architecture course, Paul shows you how to build an in-place mass:
In our second new Revit course, Designing a House in Revit Architecture, new author Brian Myers takes you step by step through the process of designing a house from scratch in Revit Architecture. The course covers the design of a multi-level home, and the documentation process required to create multiple plans, sections, details, and schedules. This course is terrific for anyone wanting to understand the full design process within Revit Architecture.
This clip, from chapter two of Designing a House in Revit Architecture, walks you through the process of creating exterior walls for an American bungalow-style home, which is usually the first modeling step taken after you’ve reviewed all your project requirements, and entered your project information into Revit:
If you’re interested in architecture, stay tuned as we have more courses focused on architecture-related software in the works.
