Autodesk Revit Building 9 Tutorial


Autodesk® Revit® Building 9 is a building design and documentation system that works the way Architects and Designers think. With Revit Building, Architects and Designers can get back to what they love, designing buildings, without their software getting in the way. Users can work in any view that makes sense, quickly and easily making changes to major design elements as they go. Easy visualization with on-the-fly 3D views and instant shadows means less waiting. You can even make late-stage changes without worrying about coordinating your plans, schedules, and construction documents. This intuitive course is a collection of step-by-step "follow-along" lessons that will teach all users how to use Revit® Building. Work Files are included. To begin learning today, simply click on the Autodesk® Revit® Building 9 movie links.
