Who Should Read This Book:
This book is written for architects and designers who have had some exposure to Revit and are eager to learn more. It’s for architects of any generation—you don’t need to be a computer wizard to understand or appreciate the content within. We’ve designed the book to follow real project workflows and processes to help make the tools easier to use. The chapters are full of handy tips to make Revit easier to leverage in your day-to-day world.
This book is also for the entire range of architects, from those who are fresh out of school to seasoned project managers. We have endeavored to include content for all walks of the profession so that regardless of your role on a project, you can learn how BIM changes both workflow and culture within a project team. With that, a basic understanding of Revit will make it easier to work through the book. Revit is a very robust tool requiring more than one project iteration to master.
For BIM managers, the book offers insights into the best practices for creating good project or office templates; these managers should also take a sneak peek into the powerful world of building content and Revit families. We’ve added many time-saving and inspiring concepts to the book, supported by examples from our own projects and the rest of the real world, to help motivate and inspire you on your journey through building information modeling.
What You Will Learn:
This book will help you take the basics of Revit and BIM that you already know and expand on them using real-world examples. We will show you how to take a preliminary model and add layers of intelligence to help analyze and augment your designs. We’ll show you how to create robust and accurate documentation, and then we’ll help you through the construction process. We go beyond introductory topics. To that end, we won’t be starting a project from scratch or teaching you how to build a simple BIM model. If you are interested in learning at that level, we strongly recommend you pick up Autodesk® Revit® Architecture 2015 Essentials (Wiley, 2014) before plunging headlong into this book. Instead, our book begins with a brief overview of the BIM approach. As you are already aware, BIM is more than just a change in software; it’s a change in architectural workflow and culture. To leverage the full advantages of both BIM and Revit in your office structure, you will need to make some changes to your practice. We’ve designed the book around an ideal, integrated workflow to help you make this transition.

Starting with the project team, standards, and culture, we’ll discuss how BIM changes your project approach and how to best build your team around a newer workflow. From there, we’ll delve into conceptual design and sustainability studies, continuing through best practices for design iteration and refinement. You’ll learn how to use powerful modeling techniques, how to design documentation best practices, how to make compelling presentation graphics, and how to take advantage of parametric design with the Family Editor. We’ll explore workflow topics like tracking changes and work-sharing as well as some strategies that move beyond traditional concepts of BIM. The book concludes with an appendix on troubleshooting and best practices so you can avoid common pitfalls. Throughout the book we’ve shared our practical experience with you, particularly in the form of real-world-scenario sidebars. Whether you’re studying Revit on your own or in a class or training program, you can use the “Master It” questions in the section called “The Bottom Line” at the end of each chapter to test your mastery of the skills you’ve learned.
