In this class, you will learn about the powerful conceptual design tools in Autodesk® Revit® Architecture 2013 software. You will learn how to use these tools to create precise, free-form designs quickly and directly. You will also see how these tools integrate into and complement existing workflows and products Autodesk products.

Key Learnings

  • Explain how parametric relationships can be used to precisely drive building form
  • Integrate these tools into existing workflows
  • Describe design alternatives in Revit Architecture 2013
  • Use the conceptual design tools for various form-making and editing techniques
