Autodesk Revit for Building Designers & Architects is a textbook written with a project-based approach and learn-by-doing as the theme. A number of "Architectural and Interior Designing" examples have been used as projects to ensure that the user can relate his knowledge of this book with the real-world designs.

This textbook consists of 15 logically sequenced chapters covering the Basic Building Components, Site Features, Massing, Annotations, Schedules, Cost Estimation, Rendering, and Walkthroughs. Each chapter begins with a command section that provides a detailed explanation of the commands and tools in Autodesk Revit. The command section is followed by tutorials that have been created using these commands. This approach allows the user to use this textbook initially as a learning tool, and then later use it as a reference material. The following are some of the features of this book that you might find useful:

Detailed explanation of Autodesk Revit commands and tools
Real-world architectural and interior designing projects as tutorials and with step-by-step explanation

Tips and Notes throughout the textbook
