Description

For the past several years, the process of designing, documenting, and even constructing a building has been improved and refined with the concept of BIM, Building Information Modeling. This course, Revit Architecture Design Development Fundamentals, is intended for the Architects, BIM Managers and CAD Technicians who are ready to use Revit as a Building Information Modeling platform. The tools and topics covered are tailored to fit the design development phase of the architectural design process. First, you'll learn how to sketch generic walls, floors, and roofs. Next, you'll learn how to generate area and room plans and also explore working with system families. Finally, you'll finish the course by learning to work with curtain walls and loadable families and stairs. By the end of this course, you will have a fundamental knowledge of Revit as it applies to architecture design development. Software required: Revit 2017.

Course Overview
Hi everyone, my name is Pierre Derenoncourt, and welcome to my course Revit Architecture Design Development Fundamentals. I'm an AEC Curriculum Manager here at Pluralsight. In this course, we're going to learn about the various types of families we have available to us within Revit. We'll learn how to use the out-of-the-box families, as well as new and custom families to help us further develop the design of a conceptual model. Doing so with help us create and communicate our design intent. Some of the major topics we will cover in this course include sketching generic walls, floors, and roofs, generating area and room plans, working with system families, working with curtain walls, working with loadable families, and also modeling stairs and railings. By the end of this course, you'll know how to further develop the design of a conceptual model by creating and placing new and customized loadable and system families into your Revit model. Before beginning this course, you should be familiar with the various phases of the architectural design process, as well as some conceptual design fundamentals. I hope you'll join me in this journey to learn design development techniques with Revit Architecture Design Development Fundamentals at Pluralsight.
