    This Revit course will serve as a practical demonstration of how to set up and model a complex architectural project by using a variety of tools covered in the Revit Modelling for Beginners course. In this course we’ll take you through the workflow of how to model the external envelope of the Anacleto Angelini Innovation Centre by Pritzker prize winning architect Alejandro Aravena. The course will start at project setup and each subsequent lesson will focus on a different model element. It will cover floors, walls, roofs, curtain walls, louvres and balustrades, toposolids, masses and model in-place components.

    What will you learn in each video?

    Learn how to start a new project by selecting a custom Revit Template, adjust levels and grids to suit the project, set up views to help navigate around the model and link reference CAD files into the views to help model the various building elements.

    Create the necessary floor families and model floors by tracing linked CAD files using Revit’s floor command and associated draw tools. To assist with modelling, practice using temporary visibility commands the specialty copy-to-clipboard and paste-to-level commands.

    Create the necessary wall families and model walls efficiently by using previously modelled elements as a reference. Minimise repetitive tasks by copying walls to selected levels where walls occur in the same relative location

    Create curtain panel, curtain mullion and profile families to then create a curtain wall family. Model feature curtain walls and customise the grid to achieve a custom pattern using the curtain panels.

    Create curtain roof, and standard roof families and model on top of walls to enclose all remaining open spaces.

    Create glass balustrades for the balconies, and louvre screens to sit in front of the curtain walls by loading curtain panel elements into the project and then creating new curtain wall types.

    Create and assign materials for each of the modelled elements.

    Use Revit’s toposolid tool to model the ground condition for the site and the surrounding context. Use the model-in-place component command to create 3D masses for the built context.
