Architectural Modeling in Revit: The BIM House 2015 by Rob Danner

Updated for Revit® 2015 with improved workflow, updated illustrations, and more insights and explanations!

Originally developed as part of a college curriculum, this is the second volume in a two-part series of workbooks that walks the reader through modeling a residence using Revit® 2015. As in Volume I, the chapter sequence follows a workflow-based approach. In this volume, the reader continues to develop and refine the model started in Volume I, and will be introduced to extracting information from the model using schedules and other annotation elements. Additionally, detailing, drawing sheets, site design, Revit Links with shared coordinates, and presentation methods are introduced. The 2nd edition changes include clarifications and typo corrections only, and in no way change the final outcome of the project.

This full-color text employs the same unique instructional graphics as Volume I, helping to visually guide the reader through completing series of steps. Furthermore, this version of text has been significantly updated for 2015; not only for the 2015 version of Revit, but the instructions, workflow, and insights have been refined to address various areas of difficulty repeatedly identified by students.

Supplemental content required to complete the exercises is available for download from the author's website at

Note: this text is not intended to be an in-depth reference detailing the "nuts and bolts" or complex underlying concepts of Revit®. Rather, it is intended to introduce and reinforce building modeling concepts through repetition. While basic explanations are provided throughout the book, it is most effective when accompanied by additional instruction or related reference material.

About the Author

Rob Danner began using Revit® Architecture 9 in 2006 on his own residential design projects in the Southwest. After a few years of relentless determination to harness the power of this software, he reflected on his frustrations with the lack of comprehensive tutorials that not only focus what works, but also what to do when things don't work. After relocating to the Pacific Northwest, Rob decided it was time to begin sharing his in-depth knowledge of Revit® and now teaches at South Puget Sound Community College in Olympia, Washington. Over the last five years, Rob has used the BIM House series in his Building Information Modeling curriculum at the college. This has provided ample opportunity to test, refine, and prove the effectiveness of the book's content.
