Description

In this series of tutorials, you'll learn how to put together all the elements you'll need to create a powerful and professional site analysis using Revit 2014. We'll begin by inserting a satellite image of a proposed building site located in a dense downtown setting where you'll see how to quickly scale your image using real world data. From there we'll create the site's infrastructure by placing streets, bridges and blocks that will really bring the site to life. Once we've completed our model, we'll then analyze the site even further by conducting a solar study to study the sun's path and its effect on our site. Finally, we'll be able to experience the scale of our site by creating a basic walkthrough of downtown. Once you've become comfortable with the concepts and techniques in this course, you'll be able to put together a high-quality site analysis presentation of your own with no problem. Software required: Revit 2014.

Introduction and Project Overview
[Autogenerated] Hi there. I'm fear with digital tutors and auto desk authorized publisher. And in this series of tutorials, I will teach you how to put together all the elements you need to create a powerful and professional side. Analysis. Using Rabbit 2014 will begin by inserting a satellite image of a proposed building site located in the dense downtown setting, and I'll show you how to quickly scale that image. Using some real world data from there will create the sights infrastructure by placing streets, bridges and even blocks that will really help to bring this site to life. Once you've completed your modeling well, then analyze a sight even further by conducting a solar study to study the sun's path and its effects on our site. Finally, we'll be able to experience the scale of our site by creating a very basic waffle of downtown. Once you become comfortable with the concepts and techniques in this course, I'm confident you'll be able to put together ah, high quality side analysis presentation of your own with no problems
