Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
The Barnes & Noble Review
Whether they were using vellum or AutoCAD, people have planned buildings much the same way for centuries. But in recent years, complexity has exploded, and traditional techniques have become glaringly inadequate. The solution: "Building Information Modeling," a radically new approach to design and documentation. AutoDesk’s Revit Architecture is the tool of choice for implementing BIM. And Introducing Revit Architecture 2008 is the book of choice for getting started with Revit.

With BIM, so much changes: techniques, workflow, roles, mindsets. Before even going near the software, the authors illuminate all these changes. You’ll learn how BIM works, where to start, what suddenly becomes incredibly easy, and what suddenly looks strange or challenging. (Everything in your BIM 3D model is intimately interrelated: If you delete a floor, what happens to the walls, doors, and furniture on that level? And how do you plan a building without layers?)

Once you’re thoroughly ready, the authors walk you through Revit Architecture 2008’s user interface, covering issues ranging from project settings to file formats. Next, you’ll explore the “views" at the heart of Revit and BIM. These have familiar names: floor plans, sections, elevations, details, and so forth. But they’re not separate drawings: they’re "dynamic, living images" pulled from your integrated 3D building model.

The authors then walk you through modeling a small house: levels, grids, walls, floors, roofs, doors, windows, stairs, railings, and more. You’ll learn how to modify elements; gradually deepen your modeling expertise; then start using Revit to prepare client and construction documents. At every step, you’ll get plenty of hands-on practice. And, as you progress, we suspect you won’t just get comfortable with Revit: you’ll get downright excited about it. Bill Camarda, from the June 2007 Read Only
