Autodesk Revit – For the Beginner user, bringing them right up to an intermediate level!

First, I will guide you through the install process, ensuring you have installed the correct library and region template. I will be using the UK Metric library and templates but don’t worry if you want to use another. All the processes will be the same and if I use a component from the UK library that isn’t available in your library, I will always suggest one for you.

As with BIM you work solely on one single project, so I have constructed this course in the same way.

If you do not have previous experience with Revit or any CAD based software, don’t worry. I will start off from the beginning building you up to be more than capable at creating your own Revit models.

The course will start off by giving a brief introduction to the fundamentals of a building, what is BIM an then moving onto the basics of Revit; from the terminology which Revit uses to the tools and interface.

We will then begin to build on our project, introducing a new tool and feature as we progress.

Adding in the datum elements, such as the levels and grids.

Structural components, such as the Structural and Architectural columns

Major and Minor Components like the; walls, windows, doors, floors, stairs, ceilings, curtain walls and roofs.

We will then take it to the next level and learn how to create 2D details, how to tag the components, create schedules & legends, creating render images and video walk-throughs.

Finally, we will set up our sheets and send it to print.

Alongside the videos I have supplied you with course notes to follow along with as well as some files to work with.

As a recap, I have added a quiz to every section. This won’t affect your final certificate but will refresh what you have just learnt.

Once you complete the course why not test out your new skills by taking the final exam, consisting of 40 questions!

Finally, I continually update this course to keep it up to date with the new releases as well as adding new videos.

I look forward to seeing you in class!

Lumion is a powerful tool for architects, landscape architects and other designers and is making its way into more and more studios and offices. The ease of the interface and workflow within this software along with the ability to make 3D models from a variety of software programs look fantastic makes Lumion great resource to have.

While almost anyone can pick up Lumion and learn the basics, there are also more advanced techniques that some users aren't even aware of. In Lumion for Architects we approach this software with the expectation that you will learn the basics along with a few tricks that will really take your renders and animations to the next level including the grid technique that allows construction phasing and other animations, time lapse videos and how to use advanced move for technical animations.

One of the best parts about this course is that the 3D models are available as part of the course work. You can join Sam step-by-step as you assemble the same museum that you will see in the instructional videos and he even shows you how you can show off your final render with the world.

While this course is designed with an architect in mind, it will be valuable for anyone trying to get the most out of Lumion. As a matter of fact, while Sam owns his own 3D visualization studio, he is an engineer by trade rather than an architect. (If you are an architect, no hard feelings... right?)

We look forward to you joining us in Lumion for Architects!

Fundamentals of Garden Design

Students: 10002, Price: $49.99

Students: 10002, Price:  Paid

This is a beginner/intermediate level course in landscape Architecture and Design.

Landscape design is more than selecting plants for a project, it is the integration of all the elements and spaces that affect our outdoor living environment.  In this course you will be introduced to the objectives and principles that are essential to developing a strong design solution for either yourself or for a paying client, all the while you'll be introduced to new garden and design ideas to help grow your design company.  With lessons covering how to interview the client, design contracts, form composition and selecting a design approach this course is a comprehensive and in-depth journey into the world of truly creative landscape design.  

Because I have students taking this course from all over the world with a wide range of climates and plant palettes this is NOT a course on planting design.  The basic concepts of how plants can be used within the landscape are discussed, but individual plant species and their use or placement will not be addressed.

The practical skills of drafting to scale, and site surveys will be explained. Finally, how to take these skills, draw your garden design and create a conceptual garden plan for yourself, family or client will be covered in detail.

This is a course on garden design - not gardening.  It is also NOT  a course using computer aided design (CAD).  The instruction will be in using pen, ink and paper - what I believe is the starting point for all design even if you choose to use a computer program later on.  CAD is simply a tool, but if you do not know the basic principles and objectives of design, CAD won't help you.  You'll simply do poor designs faster!

The conceptual plan is the starting point for any design project, opening discussion and refining the plan before construction drawings are prepared and it is this approach to design that I will be explaining, demonstrating and clarifying for the student.

What you will get out of this course:

74 lectures walking you through the entire process of creating a conceptual garden plan including garden design basics

Approximately 7 hours of instruction

Lifetime access to the instructor for advice, plan critique, contract review and encouragement

Lifetime access to  the course and resources

30-day, money back guarantee

Certificate of Completion when you've finished the Course

Pure and practical advice

Personal guidance and mentoring from someone (me!) who has been designing and creating gardens for over 35 years

This course is all about Autodesk Revit, the most powerful software to design buildings and civil structures. I have explained everything in a simple and practical way with a lot of examples and real-time use of the tools and facilities provided by the software.

I have use Revit 2018 to present the course but all the commands are applicable in version 2016 and 2017 as well.

Also I will make sure to add more content about the new features added to the later version as soon a they are released.

All the videos are downloadable so that you can watch them offline at your leisure.

Please let me know if you need any information and learning material in case you feel necessary, even though I have made sure all the core concepts and the most important concepts are covered.

Good luck!

Welcome to the course architectural design and animation in blender. In this course you'll be learning how to layout the design and create photo realistic animations of this modern house. This is a great skill to have especially for 3D artists creating their own works and those who want to create architectural structures and models.   

We begin by laying out the 2D floor plan, an essential step for those looking to control the design aspect of their projects. 

The next step is to take the floor plan and begin the 3D modelling part of this project. This step includes the Archipack add-on that assists in the creation of walls, doors and windows to quickly assemble the structure. Once the structure is in place we will add a high dynamic range image to help light the scene. This lighting will help us achieve real world lighting conditions to view our material.

This leads us into materials and textures where you will learn to use Blenders PBR material shader to create a realistic looking 3D model. This is really important skill to have when creating architectural scenes in Blender.

We look at more advanced techniques including creating grass using the particle system and creating trees using the sapling add-on. 

We complete this section by rendering out a photo realistic image.

The next stage is the fun part where we prepare the model for animation. We make the house appear slowly using boolean modifiers and I will show you a great feature for quickly previewing how the animation looks before a full render. 

Finally we use render layers to speed up rendering and take a look at the compositor in Blender to put the elements back together.

Do you want to learn how to create stunning photorealistic 3D architectural renders in Blender? Do you want to be able to digitally recreate your own house in Blender? By the end of this course you will have made a beautiful 3D modern house. The first section of this course will be focused on modeling our modern house. Over the next couple sections we will be adding materials, textures, modelings and lighting to our scene. I will then show you how to render your image and post process it. And because I am nice I will show you how to edit your image in Photoshop as well!

Learning Blender can be very hard when you first start that's why I built this course for all levels beginner to advanced. I will be showing you step by step on what to do and why we do it. From the basics of modeling to advanced techniques like creating grass with particle systems.

I have also included 3 bonus sections in this course. The first one is creating a realistic tree in Blender. We will go through how to create an organic looking tree, apply textures and use particle systems to create the branches.

The second bonus I will show you how to create a modern couch in Blender. First thing we will do is model and sculpt it. This will add some creases to make it more realistic. Then, of course, the materials and rendering.

The last section of the course we will jump into the real time render engine Eevee and learn how to render our scene. Eevee is a real time render engine in Blender 2.80 and you will learn how it works, how to set up the render and make the materials look good.

I will be giving away 13 professionally made models and 5 high resolution textures. You are free to use these models for other scenes but you are not allowed to sell or upload them. By enrolling in this course you agree those conditions.
