I am a High School graphics (drafting) teacher using Revit in the classroom for the first time.  The course is "Residential Architecture" .  I am havng problem in several areas.  Virtually all of the tutorials are for commercial buildings which only indirectly applies to residential construction. 

Several of my students projects are two story residences and/or residences with multiple ceiling heights on the first floor. 

Problem:  When adding the second floor how do we add the elecation symbols for the First Finished floor, the first floor top plate(s), the second finished floor, the second floor top plate and the roof (whatever that is).  I have yet to understand where in the construction model the "roof" is.  

It would be very helpful to have a basic sample of a two story and/or 1 1/2 story residence.  If anyone would be so kind.

I am beginning to think the effort required to find solutions to simple problems just is not worth it.  We can very easily draft excellent plans in AutoCAD.

I think you should FIRST see this: http://usa.autodesk.com/adsk/servlet/item?siteID=123112&id=11091739

This is the TUTORIALS, if you start teaching your students before you know that, well, i think LOTS of them start coming HERE (Revitcity) and start to asking.... the number of members in RevitCity it's gonna grow up....

I Hope and I Wish to LEARN  more, and more, and more.... REVIT

have a look at this text book. it may help

http://www.allbookstores.com/book/9781585033744/Daniel_Stine/Residential_Design_Using_Revit_Architecture_2008.html

their future is in BIM programs like Revit, not Autocad. i make my living with Autocad like so many others. but those days are slowly but surely coming to an end.

There are several high schools that have students using this site and REVIT.  Perhaps we can get some of them to respond with what course materials they are using.

 

I agree with coreed - BIM is the way architecture is going and it is happening at a very accelerated rate.

Is Autodesk offering a student version of Revit?  My daughter is taking AutoCAD this year and is planning to take the 3D modeling class next year.  It is based on Solid Works.  I use Revit for all of my work and would like to see her learn Revit.  Buying another full price seat of Revit is a bit steep.

an other option is that if your are using revit at the office as a stand alone. you can also install it on your home computer as use it as long as the computer at the office is not being used at the same time.

also you could have your daughter join the Autodesk Student Community at her school and she can download student versions of autodesk products for free. they have a 13 month license. but once they expired you just have to re-download for a fresh 13 months.

Can you explain more about the Autodesk student community?  As for loading on a different computer, I am self-employed and work from a home office.  That means that I work way too many hours and it would be very hard to avoid the one user at a time thing.  I definitely do not want to be in violation of my license agreement.

You have to have a .edu email to sign up for the student community.

My daughter does not have an edu email address but is going to ask her AutoCAD teacher about if she can get one.  I have never heard of Autodesk student community.  What is it and where can I get more information?

http://students7.autodesk.com/?lbon=1   There is the link and it explains a little more.  I just know that i can get my student versions for free for 13 months then i have to redownload and reinstall but at least that keeps me up on current software.
