The opening chapter of this Autodesk Official Training Guide introduces readers to the interface and Revit conventions. Readers then jump right in to modeling a four-story office building, first placing walls, doors, and windows, and then delving into Revits tools so that they fully understand views, grids, and the programs editing capabilities. The books tutorial then progresses as the buildings design would in the real world. Readers will work with structural grids, beams, and foundations- add text and dimensions as well as understand how to use dimensions as a design tool- build floors layer by layer and join them to exterior and interior walls- and create and edit roofs and ceilings as well as stairs, ramps, and railings. Readers will learn how to generate construction documentation, including how to add tags and create schedules and material takeoffs, and use formulas in schedules. Crucial information on detailing, view and match line information, and printing are covered before readers are introduced to such advanced topics as curtain walls, sweeps, and family creation and editing, including embedded families and using formulas. Readers will also learn crucial site considerations, including grading, site components, and the toposurface features before working with materials and Revits rendering capabilities. Finally, readers learn how to import and export to various formats, explore phase management, and create worksets for effective work sharing. The books supporting web site features before and after tutorial files so readers can jump in at any point and compare their work with the pros.
