The Aubin Academy Revit Architecture combines a straightforward, reader-friendly style with detailed project-focused exercises that encourage you to learn by doing. Readers will gain practical, firsthand experience with the powerful and popular Autodesk(R) Revit(R) Architecture software; purpose-built for Building Information Modeling (BIM), which industry leading architects and building design professionals are using to move beyond traditional Computer Aided Design (CAD) and drafting to manage complex projects, foster collaboration and boost productivity. With tools for early schematic design and planning, detailed design development studies and tools to create complete sets of deliverables including traditional construction document sets and modern digital output, Revit offers the modern architect everything they need to be successful in today's competitive market. Within these pages you will find a concise manual focused squarely on the rationale and practicality of creating architectural projects within the BIM paradigm. The emphasis is on proven best-practice procedures rather than a series of independent commands and tools. The goal of each lesson is to help readers complete building design projects successfully. You will find equal emphasis on "why" individual tools and features are used, not just "how" to performs the picks and clicks. The text and exercises seek to give the reader a clear sense of the value of the tools, while remaining focused on practical examples from architectural practice. The Aubin Academy: Revit Architecture provides resources designed to shorten your learning curve, raise your comfort level, and, most importantly, give you real-life, tested, and practical advice on the usage of the software to create architectural Building Information Models. Features: - Thorough coverage of the essential skills required to use Revit Architecture to create building design projects including: modeling tools, setting up views, composing sheets, working with design options, linked files and team collaboration with worksharing. - The author combines his extensive experience as an educator and architectural professional with a straightforward, engaging writing style, making even complex material easier for readers to master and apply to real projects. - Practical, project-focused exercises encourage readers to "learn by doing," giving them a deeper understanding of the BIM process and the tools and techniques used to complete it. - Power User/BIM Manager tips throughout the text offer readers practical insights on what is required to manage building information modeling in a modern architectural setting. - Dataset and practice files are included with the text and available for download from the author's website. Files are provided for each chapter, so you can skip to just the topics you need, or follow the lessons from start to finish. - Check your progress by comparing your results to the completed versions provided in each chapter's downloadable dataset. - Use the text to help you prepare for Autodesk Professional Certification.

Leverage the power of the Revit family editor to create complex forms drawn from classical architecture. This book brings together three of the author's favorite things: architecture, history and Revit in a hands-on manual like nothing else available! From the foreword: "Paul Aubin has carved out a distinctive niche in the overlapping worlds of BIM, Revit & Education. He offers support to self-directed learners who have caught the BIM bug and are seeking greater fluency & deeper knowledge. To a large extent I think his success is rooted in his own eagerness to explore and learn; plus his ability to share that enthusiasm with others. In this book he has taken that approach to a new level, seizing on one of his long-term interests, embarking on a journey of discovery, and sharing the results with his audience...And there is no better way to deepen your insight than to build your own versions of the classical orders using a programme like Revit. I think Paul has hit upon an explosive combination. Let him draw you in and take you on two rides for the price of one. Let the synergy generated by the disparate worlds of software & history drive your learning experience forward. You may well find that, like a child, you learn new skills and knowledge in an effortless riot of exploratory play...So buy the book, make the journey and take your BIM pencil for a walk across the virtual pages of history."
