Residential Design Using Autodesk Revit Architecture 2013

Front Cover
SDC Publications, 2012 - Computers - 592 pages

 Residential Design Using Revit Architecture 2013 is designed for the architectural student new to Revit Architecture 2013. This text takes a project based approach to learning Revit Architecture in which the student develops a single family residence all the way to photo-realistic renderings like the one on the cover. Each book comes with a DVD containing numerous video presentations in which the author shows and explains the many tools and techniques used in Revit Architecture 2013.

This book starts with an optional basic introduction to hand sketching techniques and concepts intended to increase your ability to sketch design ideas by hand and to think three-dimensionally. The lessons then begin with an introduction to Revit Architecture 2013. The first four chapters are intended to get the reader familiar with the user interface and many of the common menus and tools.

Throughout the rest of the book a residential building is created and the many tools and features of Revit Architecture 2013 are covered in greater detail. Using step-by-step tutorial lessons, the residential project is followed through to create elevations, sections, floor plans, renderings, construction sets, etc.
