CDV Systems today announced that it has published the latest book in its line of courseware publications for Autodesk Revit 5.1.  The book, titled “Advanced Courseware for AutoDesk Revit 5.1 – Commercial” is the second in a series of three books designed with the understanding that the needs and processes of the commercial architect are different from those who primarily work in the residential arena.  The book is available at their website (www.cdvsystems.com) and is competitively priced with discounts for bulk orders. 

The series can be used either as self-paced, hands-on instruction or as the basis for an instructor-led, 5-day training curriculum broken down into a 2-day introduction class and a 3-day advanced class,” noted CDV Systems President, Cyril Verley.  “The exercises in each of the books are process-based, enabling the user to start and finish a project in the Revit environment. The advantage of this method is that it allows the user to work not only with specific commands and features of the software, but also to understand the process and methods used to complete a typical project.

Like the introductory book, this advanced courseware is organized around taking a commercial project from start to finish. The exercises encourage the user to efficiently manage the entire project by highlighting the most appropriate features offered in Revit for a commercial building type.  

This book covers more advanced topics such as:
•    How to set up work sets to allow multiple users to access the building model
•    Rendering and animating your project
•    Advanced coverage of site tools, phasing, schedules and detailing
