UPCOMING REVIT TUTORIALS: INTERMEDIATE MODELLING
COMING IN JULY: In this upcoming Revit tutorial, we will focus on some of the more advanced capabilities of Autodesk Revit. First, we will cover how to create shadow diagrams quickly and easily. Next, we will cover how to sequence project construction stages using Phasing. Following this, we will create multiple design options and model complex geometry using the Model In-Place tool. By the end of this tutorial you will have a solid understanding of some of the more advanced capabilities of Autodesk Revit.
In this introduction to Revit we will begin by explaining the overall concept behind the software and how this differs from traditional drafting software such as AutoCAD. Next, we will cover the user interface and teach you how to execute fundamental commands such as filtering objects, trim, offset and align. Finally, you will learn how to create custom walls, control wall joins and dimension objects. By the end of this tutorial you will understand how to use the software and be on your way to designing and documenting buildings with Autodesk Revit.
In this Revit tutorial you’ll learn you the fundamentals of setting up a new architectural project in Revit. We’ll begin with an in depth explanation of how to work with surveys in Revit and how to convert these drawings quickly into accurate site plans. Next, we’ll explain how to orientate the north point of the project, without modifying the page layout. From there, well work on creating boundary lines, model a 3D topography and set the project’s levels. Finally, we’ll begin designing a house and explain the key concepts behind modelling doors and windows in Revit.
Revit offers multiple ways to model roofs. In this Revit tutorial we’ll explain how to chose the most effective method for your project. First we’ll run through an in-depth explanation of how to use the roofs by footprint tool, which is the most common method of creating roofs in Revit. Next you’ll learn how to model a roof profile using the roof by extrusion tool and cover in detail how to cut the roof using the shaft tool. From there, we’ll set up materials, add gutters, fascias and soffits and connect the walls to the roof structure. By the end of this tutorial you’ll have a firm understanding of how to model almost any roof in Revit.
In this Revit course you will focus on modelling and documenting a building’s interior. Following on from the Roof tutorial, we will create a Reflected Ceiling Plan and model a ceiling using the Sketch Ceiling command. Next, we will add light fixtures and create an electrical layout. From there, you’ll learn how to model floors and place furniture inside the building. Finally, we’ll set up a camera, create an interior perspective, apply materials and render an image. By the end of this tutorial you will have a solid understanding of how to model and document building interiors.
In this online Revit tutorial you will learn how to create a consistent and accurate drawing set in Revit. Continuing on from the Interiors Tutorial, we will begin by covering the elevation and section tags in depth. Next, we’ll create a View Template to quickly standardize the views and finally, we will explain best practice for working with Revision Clouds. By the end of this tutorial you will have a solid understanding of how to create consistent, well-presented, drawings in Revit.
In this tutorial you will learn how to create construction documentation within Revit. Following on from the Sheet Setup tutorial, you will learn how to create rooms, automate area calculations and generate a coloured plans. Next, you will learn to model a concrete slab, integrate 2D and 3D elements into the drawing and create a construction detail of the edge beam. Following this, we will add text notes, tag the project and create a window schedule. Finally, you learn how to use keynotes to create a Specification and automate annotations. By the end of this tutorial you will have a solid understanding of how to quickly and efficiently produce construction documentation in Revit.
Starting from basics, this Revit tutorial will teach you the fundamentals of modelling Families in Revit and as well as core concepts such as nesting geometry and using simple formulas to control the model. Next, we’ll cover symbolic lines, visibility and material parameters and work with reference lines to create flexible door swings. By the end of this tutorial you will have a solid understanding of how to work with Families in Revit.
In this online Revit course you’ll learn how customise 'out-of-the-box' Revit to produce your own, stylised, documentation. First, we’ll create a custom template file. Next, we’ll explain how to control line weights and pen styles and save these to your template. Following this, we’ll create a custom titleblock with a rotating North arrow. Finally, we will explain how to modify elevation tags and create unique level heads. By the end of this tutorial understand how to customise Revit to produce your own stylised documentation.
In this Revit tutorial you will learn how to create electrical plans and learn how to model single switches, multiple switches and dimmers in a single family. We will start by explaining simple techniques used for drawing wiring in reflected ceiling plans. Next, we will delve into families and cover topics such as symbolic lines and visibility parameters to create dynamic switches which appear as symbols in plan but objects in elevation. By the completion of this course you will have a solid understanding of how to create dynamic electrical plans in Revit.
In this tutorial we will cover how to model door families. We will start by explaining the door family template, next we will cover typical methods to create door panels and door frames. Finally, we will use symbolic lines to create dynamic door swing which can be modified with angular parameters. Once you have completed this course you will have a firm understanding of how to model doors in Revit.
In this Mastering Area Schedules course you will learn how to create, modify and manipulate schedules to isolate the data that you require for your project. Starting from a simple area schedule we will cover how to create custom parameters for your schedules. Next we will cover how to create formulas between fields and, finally, we create coloured floor plans based off the "room name" parameter. This course will provide you with a comprehensive understanding of how to work with rooms and schedules in Revit.
In this course you will learn how to create construction details in Revit. We will start with simple modelling techniques to create a box gutter and then create call out views to create detail drawings at larger scales. Next, we will cover how to work with Parts in Revit to modify walls. Following this we will create detail families to develop the drawing. Finally we will use keynote to automate annotations for the detail. By the end of this course you will have a solid understand of how to create construction details in Revit.
