Release Date: 2016-01-25

Suppose you want to make architectural, structural, mechanical, electrical and plumbing models of a building using Autodesk Revit but you don't have any practical experience of using Revit, then this book is for you. You will start from scratch and the book will guide you in step by step procedures to develop the models. I have tried to include all the information needed to develop the models in the book. I hope you will not be stuck at any point and waste your time in searching Help, Internet or other books to work on the topics. The book doesn't teach you lessons to remember or doesn't ask you questions to answer. From Chapter 1, you start your model and by the end of each chapter, you will see that a part of the model is complete. The book has three parts: Architecture, Structure and MEP. You start with making architectural model. When it is complete, you will use it to extract information for Structural model. In the last part, you will add services (air-conditioning, lighting, electrical and plumbing) to your architectural model (used as linked model). Check sample files at http: //

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."
