Massing With Revit Training -- Digital Edition with Ed Cotey

A Practical Revit Training Course That Teaches Real World Skills

In Massing With Revit Training Digital Edition with Ed Cotey, expert author Ed Cotey teaches you about the massing tools available in this Building Information Modeling (BIM) program from Autodesk. This course is designed for users that already have a basic understanding of Revit.
You will start by learning how to use mass elements in Revit, then jump into creating conceptual masses, such as creating a mass extrusion, revolve, sweep, and loft. Ed will then teach you how to edit conceptual masses, including adding edges and profiles and modifying mass element faces. Finally, this video tutorial will also teach you how to create a building from massing, including creating floors from mass elements, using materials to identify mass floor usage, and analyzing mass floors using a schedule.
Once you have completed this computer based training course, you will be fully capable of using Revit's massing tools for your own conceptual design. Working files are included, allowing you to follow along with the author throughout the lessons.
