In this training course for Revit Architecture 2013, expert Jay Polding will teach you to use the advanced tools and techniques that are available to you in Revit Architecture. Revit is BIM (building information modeling) software that allows you to design a building and it's components in 3D. This course is designed for the user that already has a working knowledge of Revit Architecture, or has completed the Learning Revit 2013 course from Infinite Skills.

Jay presents this training course as one single project that you will work through from start to end. You will begin with drawings and site plans, and using those, you will model a completed building project. You will use tools such as annotation, toposurface and scheduling. You will design entries, stairs and railings, rooms and a roof. You will use Revit for detailing, adding structure, creating final presentations, and exporting your completed work. This video tutorial also covers worksharing, setting up a template, and more.

By the completion of this advanced training course for Revit 2013, you will have a more in-depth understanding of how to create working BIM projects for your clients. You will have a solid grasp of the tools and techniques that are used in everyday model creation, and be able to apply them to your own creations. Extensive working files are included to allow you to follow along through the project using the same source files that the author does in the training course.
