Autodesk Revit Structure 2010 software integrates a multimaterial physical model with an independently editable analytical model for efficient analysis, design, and documentation. Structural engineers can create their own models or import architectural files from AutoCAD Architecture or Revit Architecture software. Bidirectional linking to structural analysis software enables accurate model updates, while parametric change management technology coordinates those updates across your documents. You can work in any view that makes sense, quickly and easily making changes to major design elements. You can see your ideas visualized on the fly with 3D views and instant shadows. You can even make late-stage changes without worrying about coordinating your plans, schedules, and construction documents. This course is a collection of step-by-step "follow-along" lessons and will guide you and show you how Revit Structure works. Work Files are included.

Character Animation Fundamentals in 3ds Max demonstrates the basic principles of character animation that help bring simple 3D characters to life. Starting with an overview of the character rig, author George Maestri provides guidelines for creating strong poses and explains how to animate from pose to pose in an organized fashion. The course also covers locomotion—animating realistic gestures, walks, and runs; explores the basics of facial expressions and dialogue; and culminates with an animated scene built entirely from scratch.

Designing a House in Revit Architecture examines the construction modeling and design documentation process from start to finish in Autodesk Revit Architecture. CAD support specialist Brian Myers shows how to build plans for an American-style bungalow from scratch using the tools in Revit. By the end of the course, designers will have built a model of a multi-level residence and created multiple sheets in the design documentation set, as well as sections, details, and schedules.

Learning AutoCAD 2012 is a course I wrote for people looking to get a handle on this powerful software in a short amount of time.  By the end of the course, you'll be comfortable with how to work with drawing files, controlling the views, creating basic geometry, editing, and creating text to accompany your work. A great benefit of this course is the pause button; you're able to stop the video and try out the commands, continuing when you're ready.  Let your curiosity lead you through the course, and try to apply it to the type of work you're expecting to use the software for.

This course shows AutoCAD drafters and designers how to migrate their CAD workflow to Autodesk Revit software. Author Paul F. Aubin details how to transfer your files and explains key distinctions between the packages. Along the way, learn how to customize the Revit settings for optimal control, get a basic handle on the modeling tools, and adjust yourself to the differences in visibility, plot style, object creation, and the user interface.

Phasing in Autodesk Revit allows you to show the complete life cycle of a project, such as a before and after or existing and proposed status, while design options allow you to save multiple iterations of a concept in a single project file. In this course, Paul F. Aubin shows how to use phasing and design options to organize multipart, multifaceted projects in Revit. The course also covers adding and assigning phases to views, scheduling phases and designating future work, working with design option sets, and presenting complex designs to clients.
