Revit Introduction-Modeling in 3D

  • Revit Architecture: 3D introduction
  • Introduction:Modeling in 3D

This student workbook contains exercises that will clarify in a practical way, the concepts explained in the Building Information Modeling with Revit Architecture.

The exercises cover the basic principles of the Revit Architecture technology and the building information modeling (BIM) approach. For more training information, see the official Revit Architecture training manuals and the tutorials available from the Help menu. This workbook explains the different functionalities through various exercises, and the emphasis is on the workflow rather than on the tools themselves.

Because this workbook is a companion to the lecture notes, it is roughly organized to correspond to the organization of that document. The difficulty of the exercises increases as you proceed through the units, so it is recommended that you do them in sequence. However, each exercise has a corresponding starting point and can be completed independently.

Files representing the ending point of each exercise have also been provided in the Completed folder along with the rest of the data sets and can be used to check your work. Because each exercise can stand alone, you can work through them in any manner you see fit.

The following table organizes the units to give you an idea where you might find information particular to a given operational task.

  1. Interoperability Design
  2. Model Visualization
  3. Documentation
