Autodesk® Revit® Architecture 2015

A full-featured Autodesk Revit Architecture training course covering beginner to advanced level concepts, and everything in between, for Autodesk's Revit Architecture 2015 with 549 individual video tutorials and over 54 hours of instructor-led training. Learn how to utilize the information modeling features in Autodesk Revit Architecture as your instructor, Jason Boehning, covers the core concepts and architectural specific tools used to create conceptual designs, analyze those designs and create actual buildings models. You will also learn how to document a building model and much more as each video lesson guides you through the many aspects of using Revit Architecture. Lessons include the user interface, modeling essentials, conceptual design, design analysis, families and family creation, views and sheets, reports and schedules, worksharing and collaboration tools, 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.
