In this course, you will learn how to write Revit API code in the C# language to perform a wide variety of tasks.
View Curriculum
  • Course is taught using Revit Architecture 2014. The vast majority of material also applies to Revit 2013, Revit MEP, and Revit Structure.

This course is for people who want to do more with the Autodesk Revit building information modeling software.

You can do a lot of great things with Revit as it ships "out of the box" from Autodesk, but there are still many tasks that are repetitive, boring, and error-prone. There are also many situations where you can be more effective and productive if you can add additional functionality to Revit.

This course will cover a wide range of topics in the Revit API. Each topic will be taught by walking through a set of C# code samples that progress from the basics to more advanced concepts.

More content will be added to this new course in the upcoming weeks. If you see a topic that you like added, just let me know and I will try to make that addition.

Who is the target audience?
  • Revit users who want to do more with Revit
  • People who already basic experience with the Revit API comparable to my course at

Founder of Boost Your BIM

Harry is the founder of Boost Your BIM, a software development and training company that collaborates with AEC firms to make Revit better. Boost Your BIM customers benefit from custom-built API applications that extend Revit’s capabilities and enable them to complete their work faster and with better results.

Boost Your BIM has built applications to automate routine tasks, enforce company standards, extract model data, use the Revit UI more efficiently, and solve other problems that would be difficult or impossible to do with Revit in its “out of the box” state.

Harry was an employee of Revit Technology Corporation and Autodesk from 1998 to 2012 and spent four of those years developing and testing new Revit APIs in areas such as the Family Editor, Massing, Analysis Visualization, Dynamic Model Update, and Views & Schedules.
