This class will focus on the art of a drawing and how entourage, tweaking settings, and not using Revit out of the box can add "feeling" to your drawings rather than just displaying your walls, doors, and windows. Focusing on using Revit as your main presentation tool and output, we will explore how techniques that are applied using other graphics and modeling software can be mimicked within Revit to create a more efficient workflow as well as drawings that will impress. Custom families and settings will be shared.
- Expand your knowledge of Revit and the intricacies of the settings
- Describe what is required to create great presentation graphics within Revit
- Use concepts to encourage the Revit “hold-out” designers in your firm
- Apply concepts in your firm
