Overview

INTRODUCING AND IMPLEMENTING REVIT ARCHITECTURE 2010 uses numerous exercises to illustrate how you can use Revit Architecture's sophisticated and robust capabilities as a full-featured architectural design tool. This innovative book shows how building design strengths and methods can be used and applied with Revit Architecture 2010. The coverage in the book 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 are featured early in the book to illustrate how Revit Architecture can be combined effectively with both AutoCAD and AutoCAD Architecture drawings to make the best use of existing files and work practices. Included new in this edition are updates addressing the newest features of the 2010 release of the software. There is also a Sustainable Design Points section in every chapter, Implementation of case studies to share real-world successes and challenges of implementing Revit in your workplace, as well as video files included on the back of book CD to guide you through the exercises found in the book. Additional videos clips are also contained on an accompanying Online Companion for best practice hints.
