I am a 3D modeler, and I usually make buildings for animation movies.

I am not an architect, I am wondering if I can use Revit for Modeling houses and buildings. I am very interested in Construction modeling and I am sad that I did not take up architecture as a profession. Please let me know If I can use Revit. I want to work under architects and design really nice buildings and houses. Any help will be great.

yes you can use revit for creating conceptual mass models to be converted into construction models- if you can produce building shapes that look good.. and revit does have a separate program built in for doing that.. usually the person who creates the conceptual design does not create the construction design- but you can do both if you also know how buildings are constructed.. if construction interests you- get with the international building code.. for houses it's the international residential code.. but if you have been creating conceptual models like you say- then you probably would stick with the program you know best.. you can convert any kind of conceptual model from any program into a revit construction model- 3Ds Max being the most popular via DWG mass import.. but then there are some people who use the revit construction model just for conceptual design.. i guess they use generic walls and floors and don't think about schedules and things related to construction documents.. some people even use revit to create art work.. autodesk will sell you a copy of revit to help you go to the bathroom if you've got an extra $5000..

Great stuff. Thanks!

I am actually wanting to move out of the animation industry and design buildings. I have been wanting to work with a group of architects and designers. I will check with IBC and IRC. I am very excited to learn Revit!

Thanks a ton. Any other advise from you will be great.

Revit is more than modeling.  If you just want to build models for animation, Revit will do that.  If you want to create architectural models for construction, you need a lot of education on how to put all the systems together to create a working building.  I suggest you look into architectural school or at least a technology program.
