Updated for Revit® 2015 with improved workflow, illustrations, and insights. Additionally, the chapter on stairs and railings now includes both stair by sketch and component stair tools!
Originally developed as part of a college curriculum, this first volume in a two-part series of workbooks walks the reader through modeling a residence using Revit® 2015. The chapter sequence follows a workflow-based approach that approximates a real-world scenario where the design starts off generic, and progressively becomes more complex and specific. Parametric relationships and constraints – topics often glossed over in other texts – are demonstrated and reinforced right from the start and continue throughout the book. This full-color text employs unique instructional graphics that help guide the reader visually, reducing the amount of reading necessary – when compared to other tutorial style texts – to complete a series of steps.
Note: this text is intended to introduce and reinforce building modeling concepts through repetition. Insights into concepts, tools, and workflow are given throughout the book to facilitate learning. However, it is not intended as an in-depth reference detailing the "nuts and bolts" or complex underlying concepts of Revit®.
Originally developed as part of a college curriculum, this is the second volume in a two-part series of workbooks that walks the reader through modeling a residence using Revit® 2015. As in Volume I, the chapter sequence follows a workflow-based approach. In this volume, the reader continues to develop and refine the model started in Volume I, and will be introduced to extracting information from the model using schedules and other annotation elements. Additionally, detailing, drawing sheets, site design, Revit Links with shared coordinates, and presentation methods are introduced.
This full-color text employs the same unique instructional graphics as Volume I, helping to visually guide the reader through completing series of steps. Furthermore, this version of text has been significantly updated for 2015; not only for the 2015 version of Revit, but the instructions, workflow, and insights have been refined to address various areas of difficulty repeatedly identified by students.
Note: this text is not intended to be an in-depth reference detailing the "nuts and bolts" or complex underlying concepts of Revit®. Rather, it is intended to introduce and reinforce building modeling concepts through repetition. While basic explanations are provided throughout the book, it is most effective when accompanied by additional instruction or related reference material.
