Why do you need a big, thick technical book? Well, it’s true that the best way
to learn is to just do it. But do you ever just doit and not fully getit? Books can
serve either as the basis for learning or as supplements for your learning. No
one book will teach you everything you need to know about a specific application, but you may never learn everything you need to know about an application
without a book. When written appropriately, the book you purchase is there to
start you off using good practices. If you have already begun, the book serves
as a desktop reference. And last, a book can serve as confirmation that you’re
approaching an application in the correct manner.
The Autodesk
Architecture tool is no exception. Although this application has proven to be easy to learn and easy to get a feel for, it’s still a deep,
sometimes complicated application with many procedures that require step-bystep instructions to fully understand. And to be honest, some of these features
just don’t work in the real world.
This book has been written by an author who is “in the trenches” using Revit
Architecture, Autodesk
Structure, and Autodesk
MEP software
simultaneously every day. So, yes, you could figure out all this information on
your own, but sometimes it’s nice to let someone else figure it out for you and
pass that knowledge along to you in the form of a book.
Instead of lengthy paragraphs of text that ultimately lead to non-tangible
information, this book addresses each subject in a step-by-step approach with
more than 1,000 pictures and screenshots to make sure you’re on track.
Also, this book also uses an actual project and relates to real-world scenarios.
As you’re following the step-by-step procedures in the book, you’ll be encouraged to try many techniques on your own and also to embellish the procedure
to fit your own needs. If you would rather stick to the instructions, this book
allows you to do so as well. The book’s project uses a five-story office building
with a link (corridor) to a three-story multiuse building. The book’s website
provides the model (plus additional families) you’ll need for each chapter so that
you can open the book, jump to your chapter of interest, and learn something!
In addition, this book is flexible enough that you can substitute your own project if you don’t want to follow the book’s examples.
Although it has around 1,000 pages, this book doesn’t waste time and space
with examples of other people’s triumphs but is designed for you to open it to
any random page and learn something
