Revit 2018 Textbooks; Residential Design

All of my Revit 2018 books are now updated, edited by the publisher, printed and ready for distribution! Seeing as my books are used throughout the education market, they need to be ready to go by Fall Semester so students have the correct book for the version of software they are using.

The next few posts will highlight each of my 2018 textbooks. Today's post covers the #1 Revit textbook in the USA in the academic market (based on an independent research group); Residential Design Using Autodesk Revit 2018.

FYI: I used Enscape again this year to create new cover art. I used the then beta version with a nice new grass feature. I wrote about this new feature here: click here.

In Detail

Residential Design Using Autodesk Revit 2018 is designed for users completely new to Autodesk Revit. This text takes a project based approach to learning Autodesk Revit’s architectural tools in which you develop a single family residence all the way to photorealistic renderings like the one on the cover. Each book also includes access to extensive video training designed to further help you master Autodesk Revit.

The lessons begin with a basic introduction to Autodesk Revit 2018. The first four chapters are intended to get you familiar with the user interface and many of the common menus and tools.

Throughout the rest of the book a residential building is created and most of Autodesk Revit’s tools and features are covered in greater detail. Using step-by-step tutorial lessons, the residential project is followed through to create elevations, sections, floor plans, renderings, construction sets, etc.

About the Videos

Access to extensive video training is also included with your purchase of this book. These videos break down each topic into several short videos so that you can easily navigate to a specific aspect of a tool or feature in Autodesk Revit. This makes the videos both a powerful learning tool and convenient video reference. The videos make it easy to see the menu selections and will make learning Revit straightforward and simple. It’s like having the author by your side showing you exactly how to use all the major tools in Autodesk Revit.
