Learn to design Home Plans in AutoCAD In this book, you will discover the process evolved in modeling a Home in AutoCAD from hand drawn sketches to a completed two storied home. You will start by importing hand sketches, and then create two dimensional floor plans and elevations. Later, you will move on to 3D modeling and create exterior and interior walls, doors, balcony, windows, stairs, and railing. You will learn to create a roof on top of the home. You will add materials to the 3D model, create lights and cameras, and then render it. Also, you will learn to prepare the model for 3D printing.

Autodesk Revit 2019 Architecture Basics is geared towards beginning architectural students or professional architects who want to get a jump-start into 3D parametric modeling for commercial structures. This book is filled with tutorials, tips and tricks, and will help you get the most out of your software in very little time. The text walks you through from concepts to site plans to floor plans and on through reflected ceiling plans, then ends with an easy chapter on how to customize Autodesk Revit to boost your productivity. The advantages of working in 3D are not initially apparent to most architectural users. The benefits come when you start creating your documentation and you realize that your views are automatically defined for you with your 3D model. Your schedules and views automatically update when you change features. You can explore your conceptual designs faster and in more depth. Learning to use Revit will allow you to communicate your ideas and designs faster, more easily, and more beautifully.
The only Revit tutorial guide based on a real project workflow Autodesk Revit Architecture No Experience Required is the ultimate real-world guide for mastering this increasingly prevalent BIM software package. Using a continuous, step-by-step tutorial, this book walks you through all project phases as you learn the basics of Revit by designing, documenting, and presenting a four-story office building. You'll begin by learning your way around the interface and conventions, then jump right into design by placing walls, doors, and windows. Next you'll work with grids, beams, foundations, dimensions, and text as you build floors layer by layer, join walls, create ceilings and roofs, and place stairs, ramps, and railings. The instruction covers construction documentation, advanced detailing, and families, as well as site considerations including grading and top surface features to provide a well-rounded, real-world Revit skill set. The companion website features downloadable 'before and after' tutorial files that allow you to jump in at any point and compare your work to the pros. The shift from 2D drafting to 3D building information modeling has made Revit a must-have skill for an increasing number of design, engineering, and construction professionals. This book is designed to teach you the basics quickly, using a real-world workflow, process, and pacing. Get acquainted with the Revit interface, then immediately start building Learn to place structural components, text, dimensions, and more Understand views, grids, editing, importing, exporting, and work sharing Generate construction documentation including schedules and material takeoffs This simple yet engaging tutorial brings together all of the major skills a Revit user needs to know to complete real workplace projects. Whether read from beginning to end as a comprehensive lesson, or used as 'dip-in' reference for unfamiliar tasks, Autodesk Revit Architecture No Experience Required provides invaluable practical BIM instruction for every phase of a project.
The AutoCAD(R) Showcase(R) 2017 (R1) Fundamentals student guide instructs students in how to use the visualization and presentation tools in the Autodesk(R) Showcase(R) software to create compelling presentations of 3D CAD data. In the practice- intensive curriculum, students acquire the knowledge required to progress from importing data for use in a scene, preparing it for presentation, and publishing it as an image or movie or in a web presentation format.
