Autodesk Revit 2017 (R1): Architecture Fundamentals – Imperial: Autodesk Authorized Publisher
English books/ April 24, 2017

Price: The Autodesk® Revit® software is a powerful Building Information Modeling (BIM) program that works the way architects think. The program streamlines the design process through the use of a central 3D model, where changes made in one view update across all views and on the printable sheets. This student guide is designed to teach you the Autodesk Revit functionality as you would work with it throughout the design process. You begin by learning about the user interface and basic drawing, editing, and viewing tools. Then you learn design development tools including how to model walls, doors, windows, floors, ceilings, stairs and more. Finally, you learn the processes that take the model to the construction documentation phase Since building projects are extremely complex, the Autodesk Revit software is also complex. The objective of the Autodesk® Revit® 2017 (R1) Architecture Fundamentals student guide is to enable students to create full 3D architectural project models and set them up in working drawings. This student guide focuses on basic tools that the majority of users need. Topics Covered Understanding the purpose of Building Information Management (BIM) and how it is applied in the Autodesk Revit software. Navigating the Autodesk Revit workspace and interface….

Autodesk Revit 2017 (R1) Architecture: Conceptual Design & Visualization: Imperial – Autodesk Authorized Author
English books/ April 24, 2017

Price: As architects and designers start a project, they frequently think about the overall massing of a building or the area of the footprint. The Autodesk® Revit® software, using its powerful Building Information Modeling (BIM) engine, includes tools for creating mass elements that can be modified into many shapes. You can then apply walls, roofs, and floors to them to continue designing. You can also access space planning tools for setting up areas for rooms and also applying colors for them to show the connections. For presentations, you can create, embellish, and render perspective views. The objective of the Autodesk® Revit® 2017 (R1) Architecture: Conceptual Design & Visualization student guide is to enable students who have worked with the Autodesk Revit software to expand their knowledge in the areas of Conceptual Design, including massing studies, space planning, visualization, and rendering. Topics Covered Create In-Place Conceptual Mass elements Create building elements from massing studies Use Rooms and Areas for space planning and analysis Create perspectives, sketches, exploded views, and solar studies Render views that include materials, lighting, and enhancements such as people and plants. Prerequisites Students should be comfortable with the fundamentals of the Autodesk Revit software, as taught in the…

Autodesk Revit 2017 (R1) BIM Management: Template and Family Creation – Imperial: Autodesk Authorized Publisher
English books/ April 23, 2017

Price: Building Information Modeling (BIM) is an approach to the entire building life cycle. Autodesk® Revit® for Architecture, MEP, and Structure is a powerful BIM program that supports the ability to coordinate, update, and share design data with team members throughout the design construction and management phases of a building’s life. A key component in managing the BIM process is to establish a company foundation for different types of projects by creating standard templates and custom family elements. Having this in place makes the process of any new project flow smoothly and efficiently. The objective of the Autodesk® Revit® 2017 (R1) BIM Management: Template and Family Creation student guide is to enable users who have worked with the software to expand their knowledge in setting up office standards with templates that include annotation styles, preset views, sheets, and schedules, as well as creating custom system, in-place, and component families. This student guide contains practices that are specific to each discipline. Topics Covered Create custom templates with annotation styles, title blocks, and custom element types. Create schedules, including material takeoff schedules with formula. Create custom wall, roof, and floor types as well as MEP system families. Set up a component family…

Revit MEP Step by Step 2017 Imperial Edition
English books/ April 23, 2017

Price: The purpose of this book is to provide efficient materials for those who want to learn the software of Autodesk Revit, especially for those who are interesting in building MEP systems. This book is ideal for school students and instructors. It also helps MEP professionals who want to add this software tool to enhance their works. As the title “Step by Step” of this book implies, readers will exercise the software from the beginning to the end of the modeling. That’s how you get the whole picture of the entire story and learn the software. This book covers five major disciplines of MEP systems: • Mechanical • Hydronic Piping • Electrical • Plumbing • Fire Protection Besides the modeling of 3D Duct Works, Conduits and Piping, it also covers Energy Analysis, Lighting Calculation, Schedule Creations and many MEP related Properties. The last two are really the heart of Building Information. Author also included a bonus chapter of Architectural modeling that will give reader extra background and experience of the software. I wrote this book in two versions: Imperial and Metric. Reader can choose the one to suit his/her need. With 1000+ steps, 1000+ figures, 60+ exercise files (download from…
