The book’s tutorial-based lessons cover topics of interest to beginners and seasoned users alike. Learn to set up projects in Revit, creating views and organizing project data for maximum efficiency. Create model elements like Walls, Doors, Roofs and Curtain Walls. Work concurrently on two projects: one residential and one commercial as you create a complete set of documents from initial modeling all the way to detailing and scheduling. Round out your essential Revit skillset with a look at team collaboration (Worksharing), Rendering and outputting data and documents.
