Leverage the power of the Revit family editor to create complex forms drawn from classical architecture. This book brings together three of the author’s favorite things: architecture, history and Revit in a hands-on manual like nothing else available!
From the Foreword
“Paul Aubin has carved out a distinctive niche in the overlapping worlds of BIM, Revit & Education. He offers support to self-directed learners who have caught the BIM bug and are seeking greater fluency & deeper knowledge. To a large extent I think his success is rooted in his own eagerness to explore and learn; plus his ability to share that enthusiasm with others. In this book he has taken that approach to a new level, seizing on one of his long-term interests, embarking on a journey of discovery, and sharing the results with his audience…And there is no better way to deepen your insight than to build your own versions of the classical orders using a programme like Revit.
I think Paul has hit upon an explosive combination. Let him draw you in and take you on two rides for the price of one. Let the synergy generated by the disparate worlds of software & history drive your learning experience forward. You may well find that, like a child, you learn new skills and knowledge in an effortless riot of exploratory play…So buy the book, make the journey and take your BIM pencil for a walk across the virtual pages of history.”More
The Aubin Academy: Revit Architecture combines a straightforward, reader-friendly style with detailed project-focused exercises that encourage you to learn by doing. Readers will gain practical, firsthand experience with the powerful and popular Autodesk® Revit® Architecture software; purpose-built for Building Information Modeling (BIM), which industry leading architects and building design professionals are using to move beyond traditional Computer Aided Design (CAD) and drafting to manage complex projects, foster collaboration and boost productivity.More
The Aubin Academy Master Series: Revit MEP is a concise manual focused squarely on the rationale and practicality of the Revit MEP process. The book emphasizes the process of creating projects in MEP rather than a series of independent commands and tools. It intends to introduce you to the concept of Building Information Modeling (BIM) and how you can use Revit MEP as an integral part of your firm’s BIM process. The goal of each lesson is to help you complete your projects successfully. Tools are introduced together in a focused process with a strong emphasis on “why” as well as “how.” The text and exercises seek to give the you a clear sense of the value of the tools, and a clear indication of each tool’s potential.More
