Join the BIM Revolution

Revit Architecture is transforming how architectural models are designed and documented, and this is the perfect guide for quickly becoming productive with this industry-leading BIM solution. This practical reference and tutorial begins with a theoretical overview of BIM, explains the principles of Revit, and then delves into all of Revit's essential tools. You will first get acquainted with Revit's intuitive interface, and then through a series of challenging architectural exercises, you will learn how to model, document, present, and share your design ideas.

This concise introduction to Revit is based on real-world architectural scenarios. The expert authors are architects whose years of experience with BIM technology has resulted in these pages of impressive examples, practical explanations, and in-depth and detailed tutorials. It's the perfect resource for readers of all skill levels who need to quickly accomplish vital Revit tasks. Inside you'll learn about:

  • BIM and its advantages over traditional drafting
  • The basics of parametric modeling and the Revit philosophy

  • How to start and develop a design and move it to construction documentation

  • The secrets to creating inspiring presentations

  • The best ways to exchange and share your design with others

Produce fully detailed working drawings

Automatically generate color-fill plans

Deliver compelling graphic presentations

Valuable companion CD

The CD-ROM contains sample families and all the tutorial files necessary to complete the exercises in the book, including before and after versions so you can compare results.

Book News Annotation:

For beginners, this book introduces the Revit architecture software and describes BIM (Building Information Modeling) basics using examples and tutorials. The authors provide an overview of BIM concepts and outline working with basic modeling features and creating walls, floors, roofs, and stairs. They also explain how to use components and examples of Revit's editing tools, how the program works with other applications, documenting the model for construction, and integrating annotations. Other topics include the Family Editor, worksets and team collaboration, and advanced options and troubleshooting. The CD-ROM contains sample families and tutorial files for completing the exercises in the book. Krygiel teaches Revit at Boston Architectural College and lectures on the use of BIM in the construction industry. Both architects, Demchak, a product designer, and Dzambazova, a product manager, work for Revit Architecture. Annotation ©2007 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
