For the past several years, the usual 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 Presentation Fundamentals, is intended for the architects, BIM managers and CAD technicians who are ready to use Revit as a Building Information Modeling platform. In this course, you'll first learn about 3D views and rendering. Next, you'll explore design documentation as well as how to present your design on sheets using various elements of your Revit model. By the end of this course, you will be able to communicate your design intent with Revit's annotation, documentation, and visualization tools. Software required: Revit 2017.

Hi everyone, my name is Pierre Derenoncourt and welcome to my course Revit Architecture Design Presentation Fundamentals.

I am an AEC Curriculum Manager at Pluralsight.

When presenting to team members, consultants and clients, effectively communicating the design intent is the main priority. In this course, we are going to learn how to document and illustrate your Revit projects using 3D views, renderings, annotation, and documentation tools all available within Revit.

Some of the major topics that we will cover include:

  • Working with the 3D camera and Render Setting to generate rendered images
  • Tagging building elements
  • Generating Schedules/Quantity Takeoffs
  • Creating building sections and detail drawings
  • Organizing views on Sheets and Title Blocks
By the end of this course, you’ll know how to communicate your design intent by using Revit’s visualization, annotation and documentation tools.

Before beginning the course you should be familiar with the various phases of the architectural design process as well drafting and documentation standards in the AEC industry.

I hope you’ll join me on this journey to learn how to present and document your architectural design Projects with Revit Architecture Design Presentation Fundamentals, at Pluralsight.
