Revit Architecture is a building design and documentation system that works the way architects and designers think. With Autodesk Revit Architecture, architects and designers get back to what they love, designing buildings, without their software getting in the way. You can work in any view that makes sense, quickly and easily making changes to major design elements. You can see your ideas visualized on the fly with 3D views and instant shadows. You can even make late-stage changes without worrying about coordinating your plans, schedules, and construction documents. This VTC course is a collection of step-by-step lessons designed to quickly teach you how to get the most out of this powerful software.
Building Information Modeling, or BIN, is an approach to the entire building life cycle. The BIN process supports all three phases of a building's life: the Design phase, the Construction phase, and the Management phase. In each of these phases, the BIN process supports the ability to, number one, coordinate your design data with team members, and number two, update the design data with team members, and number three, share that design data with team members. Revit Architecture is a Parametric Building Modeler and is an important part of the BIN process. Parametric means you can establish a relationship between two building elements. When one element changes, the other element changes as well, and building signifies that this program is designed for working with buildings as opposed to gears or roads. And finally, modeler signifies how a Revit Architecture project is built in a single file around a building model. All these, such as plans, elevations, sections, details, schedules, as well as design sheets printed for construction documents are automatically then generated based on the model. Revit Architecture coordinates with two other programs: Revit MEP, which is Mechanical, Electrical, and Plumbing; and, Revit Structure. Revit Architecture also enables you to check for interferences between disciplines. BIN has changed the process of how a building is designed. Revit Architecture is a true BIN product in that it is much more than a drafting program. By creating complete models and associated views of those models, Revit Architecture takes much of the tediousness out of producing a building design. In the traditional design process, plans create the basis for the model from which you then create sections and elevations. Construction documents, or CD's, can then be created in this workflow. Changes are made at the plan level and then coordinated with other documents in the set. However, in the BIN workflow, the design process revolves around the model. Plans, elevations, and sections are simply 2D versions of the 3D model. Changes made in one view automatically update in all views. Even Construction documents update automatically with callout tags in sync with the sheet numbers. This is called Bi-directional Associativity. In the traditional workflow, the most time consuming part of the project is the Construction documents. With BIN, the base views of those documents Ð floor plans, ceiling plans, elevations, sections, and schedules Ð are produced automatically and they all update as the model is updated, saving hours of work. The views are then placed on sheets that make up the Construction Document Set. Work can still continue on a view and is automatically updated on the sheet.
