Learning Autodesk® Revit® Architecture 2013

Video Description

In this Autodesk Revit Architecture 2013 training course, expert author and trainer Jay Polding walks you through the essentials of this BIM (Building Information Modeling) software from Autodesk. This training video is designed for the beginner, and no previous experience using Revit is required. Jay starts with a general tour of the Revit interface. You will learn where the most important tools that you will use are located, and how to quickly access them. Throughout this video tutorial, you will work through one single project, learning each tool as you go along, and as you need it. You will start learning the software by creating a project, linking and using the CAD files, and proceed to Toposurfacing, creating and managing walls, floors, stairs, the roof, ceilings, doors, rooms, creating schedules, views and sheets, and finally rendering, and sharing your finished model. By the completion of this video based training course for Revit Architecture 2013, you will be comfortable with the tools and techniques needed to create fully featured models for your buildings. Working files are included to let you work alongside the author throughout this tutorial.
