Revit(R) Architecture 2016 for Designers is written specifically for architects and interior designers as they transition from CAD to BIM.

This new edition is updated to include coverage on the latest changes in Revit(R) Architecture 2016. Instructions are fully illustrated, creating a smooth transition to the BIM environment for all designers. Clear, concise, and above all visual, this is the essential Revit(R) guide written specifically for interior designers and architects.
