Book Preface

Autodesk Revit Architecture 2016 Essentials, based on the Autodesk® Revit® Architecture 2016 software release.

We continually shape the focus and content of our book from our diverse experience as Revit teachers, writers, users, support specialists, designers, and testers. We have tailored the content to what we think is the most valuable combination of topics and generated exercise files that target these topics. Because we teach Revit Architecture to first-time users, we feel this book’s content is of most value to our students learning the program for the first time. This book should benefit new Revit Architecture users as well as long-term users who may not use every aspect of the program on a daily basis and could benefit from revisiting exercises as needed.

Revit Architecture 2016 includes several new valuable tools. While each tool may not be considered “essential,” we have made an effort to mix new tools, tips, and tricks, along with established features, into the context of the text and supporting exercises. For this book, many of the existing exercises have been revisited, and we’ve included new exercises meant to further your knowledge of Revit. The book follows real-life workflows and scenarios and is full of practical examples that explain how to leverage the tools within Revit Architecture. We hope you find that the topics in this book are beneficial and contribute to your continual Revit development.

Who Should Read This Book

This book is written for architects, designers, students, and anyone else who needs their first exposure to Revit Architecture or has had an initial introduction and wants a refresher on the program’s core features and functionality. We’ve designed the book to follow real project workflows and processes to help make the tools easy to learn, and the chapters are full of handy tips to make it easy to leverage Revit Architecture. This book can also be used to help prepare for Autodesk’s Certified User and Certified Professional exams. For more information on certification, please visit

What You Will Learn

This book is designed to help you grasp the basics of Revit Architecture using real-world examples and techniques you’ll use in everyday design and documentation. We’ll explain the Revit Architecture interface and help you find the tools you need as well as help you understand how the application is structured. From there we’ll show you how to create and modify the primary components in a building design. We’ll show you how to take a preliminary model and add layers of intelligence to help analyze and augment your designs. We’ll demonstrate how to create robust and accurate documentation and then guide you through the construction process. Whenever possible, we will both teach you how to use Revit and show you how to put those newfound skills to use in focused exercises.

As you are already aware, building information modeling (BIM) involves more than just a change in software; it also represents a change in architectural workflow and culture. To take full advantage of both BIM and Revit Architecture in your office, you’ll have to make some changes to how you work. We’ve designed the book around an ideal, integrated workflow to aid in this transition.
