This textbook covers major concepts and tools of Revit 2017 for architecture. It explores various processes involved in building information modeling ranging from creating building components, designing conceptual massing, using smart workshops for design optimization to inspecting design variation and creating rich construction documentation. These processes have been supported through real - world examples, tutorials, and exercises to enable the users to understand the power of BIM with Autodesk Revit. Special emphasis has been laid on the explanation of concepts such as work sharing, conceptual massing, design options, families, rendering and breakthroughs.
