Author and Revit Architecture expert Eric Wing walks you through designing, documenting, and presenting a four-story office building. The continuous tutorial begins with the Revit interface and standard conventions for placing walls, doors, and windows, then progresses through the building?s design as would happen in the real world. You?ll learn how to work with structural grids, beams, and foundations; add text and dimensions; build floors layer by layer; join exterior and interior walls; and create roofs and ceilings as well as stairs, ramps, and railings. You?ll also be introduced to using embedded families and formulas, crucial site considerations, and importing and exporting to various formats.
