This course is intended for the Architects, BIM Managers, CAD Operators and Architectural Design Technicians who are ready to start using Revit as a Building Information Modeling platform. Software required: Revit 2017.
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.

Hi everyone, my name is Pierre Derenoncourt and welcome to my course Revit Architecture Design Development Fundamentals.
I am an AEC Curriculum Manager at Pluralsight.
In this course, we are going to learn about the various types of Families we have available to us in Revit. We’ll how to use 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, will help us create and communicate our design intent.
Some of the major topics that we will cover include:
Sketching generic walls, floors and roofs
Generating Area and Room Plans
Working with System Families
Working with Curtain Walls
Working with Loadable Families
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 in your Revit model.
Before beginning the course you should be familiar with the various phases of the architectural design process as well some conceptual design fundamentals.
I hope you’ll join me on this journey to learn design development techniques with the Revit Architecture Design Development Fundamentals, at Pluralsight.
