Book Description

The Exploring Autodesk Revit Structure 2011 textbook explains the concepts and principles of Revit Structure through practical examples, tutorials, and exercises. This enables the users to harness the power of BIM with Autodesk Revit Structure 2011 for their specific use. In this textbook, the author emphasizes on modeling(physical and analytical), rebar modeling, and quantity scheduling. This textbook is specially meant for professionals and students in structural engineering, civil engineering, and allied fields in the building industry.

In this textbook, special emphasis has been laid on the concepts of structural modeling, which have been explained using relevant graphical examples and illustrations. The author has also explained a broad range of tools in the Revit Structure in the process of generating a structural model getting ready for analysis and design. In this textbook, the accompanying tutorials and exercises, which relate to the real world projects, help you understand the usage and abilities of the tools available in Autodesk Revit Structure. Along with the main text, the chapters have been punctuated with tips and notes to make various concepts clear, thereby enabling you to create your own innovative projects.

    5Good One
    By Elexa
    This is the right way to start in your quest toward learning and mastering Revit Structure. The step-by-step tutorials are great and provide the basis for mastering modeling, drafting, and presentation. The book appears to be a very thorough introduction to the subject. I am glad I purchased the book and I would recommend this as a good introduction to the Revit Structure software and its potentiality for production of structural engineering designs.

    1Don't waste your money
    By Revit Pro
    Not very in depth. This book would be o.k. for a newby. It's not going to get you through a structural project. This book needs to updated to include Revit 2012 updates. I've found better information on Autodesk's website.
