Autodesk Revit Structure Essentials

Overview

To take full advantage of Building Information Modeling, the Autodesk® Revit® Structure Essentials guide has been designed to teach the concepts and principles of creating 3D parametric models of structural buildings from engineering design through construction documentation.

This learning guide is intended to introduce students to the user interface and the basic building components of the software that makes it a powerful and flexible structural modeling tool. The goal is to familiarize you with the tools required to create, modify, analyze, and document the parametric model.The examples and practices are designed to take the students through the basics of a full structural project, from linking in an architectural model to construction  documents
