Introduce your high school or middle school students to Revit Architecture concepts with REVIT® ARCHITECTURE 2012 SCHOOL EDITION, endorsed by Project Lead the Way® (PLTW). This practical text provides a thorough guide to the industry-leading Revit Building Information Modeling (BIM) software by Autodesk®. Widely used by professional architects and engineers, Revit is an essential tool for modern Computer-Assisted Design (CAD), building design development, and architectural production. Students will gain practical, firsthand experience with the powerful and popular software architects and engineers use to move beyond traditional Computer-Assisted Design (CAD) to manage complex projects, foster collaboration, and boost productivity. Experienced Revit author Paul Aubin has incorporated guidance from PLTW master teachers to create a practical, reader-friendly guide without compromising depth or detail. This book is ideal for PLTW’s Civil Engineering and Architecture course as well as for anyone interested in preparing for career success in an engineering, CAD, or architecture field.
