Revit Design Adventures: Revit Workflow 1



This is the first post in a series entitled 'Revit Design Adventures'. In this series we will examine Revit based upon the project workflow. Learning about tools and features is necessary at a fundamental level. But how do these tools and features work in the context and workflow of a project? We won't be answering 'how' as much as when and why do I use certain Revit functions.



The first project we will examine is a small kitchen renovation complete with renderings and permit plans. Small projects have small budgets and small timeframes. Even a small renovation project offers us the opportunity to examine Phasing, In-Place Families, Custom Component Familes, In-Place Masses and most of the other Revit tools. So, let's get started with the sketches provided by the client...




Eventually, we will end up with the result at the start of the post. But first, in order to get there we will be embarking on a design adventure...stay tuned.
Next Post in Series.

Want an interesting post this is already turning out to be. I am looking forward to seeing how you would approach the whole design process and what your procedures will be. Seems like something to look forward to.

Thanks Elmo! I'm looking forward to the documentation process, warts and all!
