Attention: open in a new window. PDFPrintE-mail

Wednesday, 28 November 2012 21:36

A few weeks ago (Wednesday 7 November to be exact) I undertook the Revit Architecture 2013 Certified Professional Examination. I just wanted to share my personal experience of the test, for the benefit of any of you who are contemplating taking it.

 
 
Now I need to start off by saying that I am "not" going to tell you any of the specific questions or answers that are in the test! This is just a general summary of what to expect if you do go ahead and undertake the exam.

As some of you may know, Autodesk have recently released a "light" version of Revit, aptly called "Revit LT". This product is predominantly aimed at the small Practise, and one-man businesses. Basically, any scenario where worksharing and collaboration are not such a priority.

One Blogger, Tony, has taken to focus his site on this new offering. Simply called "Revit LT", this website takes readers through all the specifics of Revit LT.

Although only in it's infancy, the site is slick and very professional in it's presentation. We wish Tony all the VERY best with his blog and look forward to learing a lot more about Revit LT.

You can find the Revit LT website here

Most people's first experience of Roofs within Revit Architecture is by means of the "Roof by Footprint" tool. This is absolutely the right tool for the job when you need to create either a flat roof or a pitched roof. But what about if you want to create a curved roof. Well, fear not: Revit has just the tool for the job; and it the "Roof by Extrusion" tool.


In this short tutorial we are going to use this tool to create a curved, barrel vault roof over a simple rectangular building.

So first of all let's create a building for the roof to sit on! We are going to keep the form of the building really simple- we are interested in the fundamental concepts and not architectural merit.
