Autodesk® Revit® Architecture 2014

A full-featured Autodesk Revit Architecture training course covering beginner to advanced level concepts, and everything in between, for Autodesk's Revit Architecture 2014 with 534 individual video tutorials and over 52 hours of instructor-led training. Learn how to utilize the information modeling features in Autodesk Revit Architecture as your instructor, Jason Boehning, covers the features and functions used to develop, analyze, and document building designs as your instructor guides you through each lesson covering the many aspects of using Revit Architecture such as modeling system family elements, placing components, creating views and sheets, controlling the appearance of views, adding dimensions and constraints, creating reports and schedules, using collaboration tools to work with others, and much more.

As a flexible CAD training solution, you can sort the lessons and progress from beginner to advanced topics; or just review seldom used commands and added functionality of new releases.
