New York, NY (PRWEB) July 11, 2011
Infinite Skills, a premier provider of technology training, has announced the release of its Learning Revit Architecture 2012 Tutorial Video, a new course designed to guide users step-by-step in creating fully rendered 3D project designs, starting from traditional 2D sketches and the software’s default configuration.
The new Revit tutorial series is taught by expert trainer Jay Polding, an accredited LEED AP professional with over fifteen years of design and drafting experience. As an author, trainer and educator, Mr. Polding has helped thousands of users learn how to use Revit, including through his Revit in Plain English blog, which is very popular among the Revit community.
“As the architecture and building industries are more competitive than ever before, the need to be stay ahead is absolutely critical,” said Colin Boyd, sales director for Infinite Skills. “Revit Architecture offers timely, technically superior methods of creating designs that are easy to create and impressive to clients. In these lessons, Jay covers the skills that every user needs to know, whether you want to do a detailed rendering of a basic kitchen or a multi-storied building.”
The Revit Architecture 2012 training course runs for 8.25 hours and is divided into 104 tutorials that encourage users to build their skills progressively with each lesson. The voice-over guidance provided by the author is to understand, preferring everyday English over industry jargon, which can quickly become unclear when overused. Every major step is demonstrated onscreen to help the viewer learn the modeling and organization tools that make Revit so valuable.
The first step is the installation and setup of the program, discussing the importance of templates and how to configure a default workspace that is appropriate for the user’s project, such as metric defaults versus imperial measurements. The training continues straight into the build process, from staircases and columns to skylights and basic landscaping. Users are taught how to create and import CAD projects as base designs, then how to utilize that design in creating a finished rendering. These Revit tutorials show how to manipulate 3D space in a variety of ways that can be applied to almost any construction project.
“Revit Architecture can handle building projects of almost any size, and it’s being used by everyone from major architecture firms to individual contractors and even real estate offices,” said Chris Johns, content specialist for Infinite Skills. “By focusing on the core functionality of Revit, these tutorials have been designed so that anyone, no matter what their background is, can start getting use out of the software right away.”
