Residential Design Using Autodesk Revit 2016 is designed for the architectural student new to Autodesk Revit 2016. This text takes a project based approach to learning Autodesk Revit s architectural tools in which the student develops a single family residence all the way to photo-realistic renderings like the one on the cover. Each book comes with a disc containing numerous video presentations in which the author demonstrates and explains the many architectural tools and techniques used in Autodesk Revit 2016.
The lessons begin with a basic introduction to Autodesk Revit 2016. The first four chapters are intended to get the reader familiar with the user interface and many of the common menus and tools.
Throughout the rest of the book a residential building is created and many of Autodesk Revit s tools and features are covered in greater detail. Using step-by-step tutorial lessons, the residential project is followed through to create elevations, sections, floor plans, renderings, construction sets, etc.
