New Book: Autodesk® Revit® 2017 Architectural Command Reference

I am happy to announce a new Revit book titled "Autodesk® Revit® 2017 Architectural Command Reference" and is now available in hard copy and digital format.

Autodesk® Revit® 2017 Architectural Command Reference
This book provides you with an easy to use reference for all of Autodesk Revit’s Architectural Commands. This command reference can be used as you are working in the software to help you understand what each command does and how it may be used in your overall workflow. Also included with this book are nearly 100 videos tutorials which will further help you master Autodesk Revit; click here for a sample.

The book is organized in the same way the Revit user interface is presented. Each tab of the Ribbon is represented as a chapter in the book. Within the chapter each button is represented in the book as it appears on the Ribbon from left to right. Organizing the book in this way makes it easy to locate each command in the book and understand its use.

Quick Steps outline of each command covered
For each command entry you will see a brief description of what the tool will do, how it is used, and the options you will be given as you use the tool. In some cases the author’s suggestions or tips about the use of the tool will also be presented. As you learn the tools in Revit you may not need to read the full entry on the tool. To help facilitate this, many of the tools include a “Quick Steps” section to explain the tools and options in outline form.

Several tips provided
This book will help facilitate your learning of the Revit interface and all of the commands. For more experienced users, the command reference may introduce you to commands you have not used before or help you with commands you use less frequently. Whatever level of user you are, this command reference becomes a valuable resource to you as you work with Revit.

Even though the next version of Revit will likely be out soon (assumption based on the pattern of previous years), many firms do not upgrade for a while. Plus, this gives instructors time to review and make adoption decisions for next fall (i.e. August of this year). At that time, the updated version of this book will also be ready!

We think this will be a great reference for both students and professionals. Enjoy!
