Hi @Paul_F_Aubin ,

 

are your books in metric or imperial system?

Thanks for your interest

 

The Aubin Academy: Revit Architecture uses both systems in the same book. All measurements are included in both imperial and metric and there are two downloadable datasets to choose from. 

 

Renaissance Revit is "unitless" It has everything in decimal so that units are not important. 

 

Hope that helps.

Mastering Revit Architecture is the best book because apart from revit fundamentals, it also talks about BIM

I took Revit classes at my local community college and the classroom books were from www.Ascented.com. They have many levels of Revit books covering topics from architectural, MEP, Templates and family creation, collaboration, structural. I took many classes with these books. They come with their own sample projects and families, step by step instructions. Each chapter introduces a few topics and then has several exercises using those topics to accomplish a goal. I highly recommend them. Amazon is authorized to sell these now so you don't have to get them from Canada anymore.

Hi friends, 

 

With Revit you can watch the following site, which describes the curtain wall section.

 

Good luck

I use these books for both Corporate and College. Excellent books that take a project from paper to the whole building in Revit.
