Architectural Modeling in Revit®: The BIM House 2015 (Volume 2)
Updated for Revit® 2015 with improved workflow, updated illustrations, and more insights and explanations!
Originally developed as part of a college curriculum, this is the second volume in a two-part series of workbooks that walks the reader through modeling a residence using Revit® 2015. As in Volume I, the chapter sequence follows a workflow-based approach. In this volume, the reader continues to develop and refine the model started in Volume I, and will be introduced to extracting information from the model using schedules and other annotation elements. Additionally, detailing, drawing sheets, site design, Revit Links with shared coordinates, and presentation methods are introduced.
This full-color text employs the same unique instructional graphics as Volume I, helping to visually guide the reader through completing series of steps. Furthermore, this version of text has been significantly updated for 2015; not only for the 2015 version of Revit, but the instructions, workflow, and insights have been refined to address various areas of difficulty repeatedly identified by students.
Supplemental content required to complete the exercises is available for download from the author's website at www.allthingsrevit.com.
Note: this text is not intended to be an in-depth reference detailing the "nuts and bolts" or complex underlying concepts of Revit®. Rather, it is intended to introduce and reinforce building modeling concepts through repetition. While basic explanations are provided throughout the book, it is most effective when accompanied by additional instruction or related reference material.
