    Question I'm looking for a very beginner's guide for Massing in Revit

    Hi all

    I am looking for some tutorial (free or paid, doesn't matter) that goes through all the basics regarding Revit massing. I've found a couple of Massing Basics Tutorials (which were not free ) and they were complete nonsense. It was just a method of how to create a shape, add few windows, doors, floors, etc. No explanation what all the tools are, no explanation of how Revit thinks when comes to massing, nothing.

    I need something very basic, firstly to understand how Revit thinks when comes to Mass Families and Massing Tools.

    my vote: hire a reputable online tutor and get through the process quickly and on your own schedule. I used Planta1.com (Alfredo Medina) and recommend him highly. Your only issue with Alf may be the time difference though (he's in Orlando, FL, USA)...

    A good and easy way to learn Revit is following Paul F. Aubin courses.

    This one gives you the basics for Massing tools, then you'll go there to go further.

    Good learning !

    So much for my vote? Btw there are 65,789 posts here recommending PA books. Personally I donít have the attention span to learn from a book and have never owned a Revit tutorial book. I guess it depends on your needs. Iím self employed and didnít have the time to fiddle with a book. So I paid a few more dollars and learned well and quickly and now it pays me back.

    Thank you, Dave, for your kind recommendation.
    Timezone coordination with online students in Australia has not been an issue before. I wake up early, and they stay up late, or the opposite.
