Free tutorials about architectural modeling with Autodesk Revit 2010

As part of the work with architectural visualization we sometimes have to deal with different tools and softwares, used by architects and offices. When we work with our own projects and have full control over the workflow, it's quite easy to choose the tools and softwares used along the process. But, what if you get a job as a freelance artist working for an architectural office or company using tools based on BIM Technologies? A few years ago I had an experience where I should be part of a team, working with other architects in a project. The problem is that all computers in the office only had ArchiCAD, and by that time I didn't had any experiences or knowledge on the software.

That's why I always tell my students at the college to watch and read any materials about softwares used in the process of architectural drawing and modeling. You never know when this type of knowledge will be needed. A very common type of software used for develop architectural projects are the BIM based tools such like ArchiCAD and Revit. A great way to get to know those tools is by watching video tutorials about architectural modeling. I just found a great set of free tutorials about architectural modeling on Revit 2010, which will be a great help to anyone interested in learning the basics of the software.

It's only a small group of short videos, but should be enough to at least give a basic overview of how the software works for artists interested in learn Revit. With this knowledge, we will be able to talk with other architects and engineers to prepare the project for exporting 2d drawings or 3d models to render in other tools like Blender 3D.

Update: And here is the link to the author of the tutorials, called Steve Stafford, web site about Revit.
