Overview

This innovative book shows how building design strengths and methods can be used and applied with Autodesk Revit Architecture 2008. Coverage explores the ways in which Revit Architecture handles design and documentation tasks and the advantages it presents for creating fully integrated building information models. Tutorial exercises early in the book illustrate how Autodesk Revit Architecture can be combined effectively with AutoCAD and Architectural Desktop drawings to make the best use of existing files and work practices. Numerous other exercises illustrate how to use Revit Architecture's sophisticated and robust capabilities as a full-featured architectural design tool— sketched massing objects that convert to building elements, configurable components, automatic coordination of all parts of the building model with views and annotations, simply controlled yet detailed graphic representation and output, strong data management via schedules, and color diagrams.
