Welcome!

The traditional print publishing industry requires long production cycles before any book or publication can see print. This situation has become more acute for authors like myself who publish books on annual software releases. I hope to use this blog to publish information, updates, addenda, ruminations, and other "mid-cycle" missives. I hope you enjoy it.

Thanks for visiting.

The Book is here!


After a VERY long wait this cycle, I am happy to announce that today I received my copy of The Aubin Academy Master Series: Revit Architecture 2011.

This is the 2011 edition of my Revit Architecture book: Paul F. Aubin's Mastering Revit Architecture 2010. This year we have re-branded this and other books under the new banner of "The Aubin Academy Master Series."  This was done for a few reasons. First, there was already (and has been for some time) another title called "Mastering Revit Architecture." It is by another publisher and by different authors. So part of the re-branding is an attempt to eliminate some of the confusion caused by having two different books with essentially the same title. The other reason for the switch is to help group all of my books (4 titles this year) under a single banner.

Here is a photo of the actual book! Now I really do believe that it has published because I am holding it in my hands!

To give you a sneak peak at some of what you can expect to find in its pages please visit some of the previous posts like these which include excerpts from the topics in the book on making custom elevation tags:
Elevation Tags Part 1
Elevation Tags Part 2

And this excerpt that details the process of setting up shared coordinates in a Revit project.
Excerpt for Chapter 6.

Book Dataset
The book no longer includes a CD/DVD. You download the dataset online.
You can find the complete dataset for the book here.
This is on a page hosted by the publisher. To see the complete book page on CengageBrain (the publisher's site), click here.

The other three books in the Aubin Academy Master Series are:

The Aubin Academy Master Series: AutoCAD MEP 2011 (co-authored with Darryl McClellan, Martin Schmid and Gregg Stanley) - Due October 27
The Aubin Academy Master Series: Revit MEP 2011 (co-authored with Darryl McClellan, Martin Schmid and Gregg Stanley) - Due in December


And don't forget my Revit Architecture Essentials Training at lynda.com.

Congratulations.. In anticipation of this I've been holding off buying new books for our training sessions at work because I value your "Mastering" series..

They have helped me out a ton over the years starting with ACA..

Is there going to be a Kindle version? Kindle books on the PC is the only way to follow along in software manuals anymore. Its what second monitors are made for.

Thanks

Markus

Thanks Markus. I appreciate it. There should be a Kindle version. I do not know the timing however. I am sure there is some gymnastics to work out with Amazon and the publisher. I will post as soon as I know.
