Interior Design Using Autodesk Revit 2019

Author: Daniel John Stine,Aaron Hansen

Publisher: SDC Publications

ISBN: 1630571830

Category: Computers

Page: 832

View: 5414

The intent of this book is to provide the interior design student a well-rounded knowledge of Autodesk Revit tools and techniques. These skills can then be applied to enhance professional development in both academia and industry. Each book also includes access to nearly 100 video tutorials designed to further help you master Autodesk Revit. The overall premise of the book is to help you learn Revit while developing the interior of a two story law office. At the start of the book you are provided an architectural model with established columns, beams, exterior walls, minimal interior walls and roofs in which to work. This allows more emphasis to be placed on interior design rather than primary architectural elements. The chapters' chronology generally follows the typical design process. You will find this book helps you more accurately and efficiently develop your design ideas and skills. The first chapter introduces you to Revit, Building Information Modeling (BIM) and the basics of opening, saving and creating a new project. The second provides a quick introduction to modeling basic elements in Revit including walls, doors, windows and more. This chapter is designed to show you how powerful Revit truly is and to get you excited for the rest of the book. The remainder of the book is spent developing the interior space of the law office with an established space program. You will learn how to view and navigate within the provided 3D architectural model, manage and create materials and develop spaces with walls, doors and windows. Once all the spaces are added to the model, several areas are explored and used as the basis to cover Revit commands and workflows. At the end of this tutorial, you will be able to model floor finishes, ceilings with soffits, casework, custom reception desk, restrooms, furniture and light fixtures. Additional features such as tags, schedules and photorealistic rendering will be covered.

Organizing the book in this way makes it easy to locate each command in the book and understand its use. 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. 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.

Onshape is an exciting, new, completely cloud based CAD tool. Getting Started with Onshape is a quick paced guide geared towards users who have no experience in 3D modeling and very little or no experience with AutoCAD. Some experience with a computer and using the Internet is assumed. Because Onshape can be used for FREE it opens up CAD to anybody who is interested in creating their own models, including members of the bourgeoning Maker community and students who want to learn how to use 3D design tools. Because Onshape is 100% cloud based, there is no software to install and it is always up to date. New features are available to use as soon as they are ready. The good news is that the tools, as outlined in this book, will continue to work the same way even as Onshape evolves. This book guides you through the very basics of how to create models all the way to exporting to a stl file, which can be used to create a 3D print. Then you can send your stl file to one of many local or online shops that can print out a stl file. When you have completed this book you will have taken the first step to the Maker Faire journey. In the first chapter of Getting Started with Onshape you will learn how to create an account, explore the workspace and learn how to share your documents with other people. Chapter two features a project where you are guided, step by step, to design your own singlet ring. Throughout this chapter you will learn many of the basic tools you need to use in nearly every project you create. The third chapter features a new project where you create all the parts of a scooter. This project builds on what you learned previously to create more complex designs while new features of Onshape are introduced. In the remaining chapters you will learn how to import parts from other CAD systems, assemble the parts of your scooter and finally create a set of engineering drawings for your scooter.
