Description

In this series of tutorials, we'll take an in-depth look at working with materials for your BIM models in Revit. We'll begin by getting familiar with the Material Browser and the location of all the tools within that window. From there, we'll learn how to change materials in existing building elements and assemblies. We'll also take it one step further and explore how to manipulate material properties to get the visual outcome we want to achieve. Finally, we'll take a look at how different materials and material property assemblies can affect the thermal performance of your building. By the end of this training, you'll know how to add, change, and edit materials. You'll also witness the power of information when it comes to building performance. Software required: Revit 2015.

Introduction and Project Overview
Hi there, I'm Pierre with Digital Tutors and Autodesk Authorized Publisher. In this set of tutorials we'll take an in depth look at working with materials for your BIM models in Revit. We'll begin by getting familiar with the material browser and the location of all wood tools within that window. From there, we'll learn how to change materials in existing building elements and assemblies. We'll also take it one step further and explore how to manipulate material properties to get the outcome we want to achieve. Finally, we'll take a look at how different materials and material property assemblies can affect the thermal performance of your models. By the end of this course, you'll know how to add, change, and edit materials and you'll also be able to witness the power of information when it comes to building performance. So with that, I'm ready to get started and I'll meet you in the next lesson.
