The updated 2020 edition of the popular step-by-step tutorial for Revit Architecture

Shortly after its first publication, Autodesk Revit for Architecture: No Experience Required quickly became the market-leading, real-world guide for learning and building with Revit--the powerful and sophisticated Building Information Modeling (BIM) software used by professionals the world over. Fully updated for Revit 2020, this popular, user-friendly book helps you learn the Revit interface, understand the fundamental concepts and features of the software, and design, document, and present a 3D BIM project. A continuous, step-by-step tutorial guides you through every phase of the project: from placing walls, doors, windows, structural elements, dimensions, and text, to generating documentation, advanced detailing, site grading, construction scheduling, material takeoffs, and much more.

Updated and revised to include new content, this invaluable guide covers all the fundamental skills every Revit user needs. Whether used as a complete, start-to-finish lesson or as a quick-reference for unfamiliar tasks, this book will help you:



Learn each phase of designing, documenting, and presenting a four-story office building using a simple yet engaging continuous tutorial
Follow the tutorial sequentially or jump to any chapter by downloading the project files from the Sybex website
Use the start-to-finish tutorial project as a reference for your own real-world projects and to develop a powerful Revit skillset
Gain thorough knowledge of Revit's essential concepts and features to make the move from 2D drafting to 3D building information modeling
Get up to speed with advanced features, including new coverage of advanced walls, families, sites, topography, and more

Autodesk Revit 2020 for Architecture No Experience Required is the go-to guide for both professionals and students seeking to learn Revit's essential functions quickly and effectively, to understand real workplace projects, processes, and workflows, and to set the stage for continuing on to more advanced skills.
