Exploring Autodesk Revit 2021 for Structural Engineers textbook covers major concepts and tools of Revit 2020 for structure. It explores various processes involved in Building Information Modeling ranging from creating building components, designing conceptual massing, using smart workflow for design optimization to inspecting design variation and creating rich construction documentation. These processes have been supported through real-world examples, tutorials, and exercises to enable the users to understand the power of BIM with Autodesk Revit. Special emphasis has been laid on the explanation of concepts such as Structural Analysis, Adding Reinforcements, Linking Analytical Model, Work sharing, conceptual massing, Design options, Families, Rendering, and Walkthroughs.
