Mastering Autodesk Revit Architecture 2013

If you haven't made it over to Amazon to preorder your copy of the official Autodesk Revit Architecture 2013 training guide entitled "Mastering Autodesk Revit Architecture 2013" then you better go do it now...


This was my third year writing the API chapter with Phil Read, James Vandezande, and Eddy Krygiel. I wrote about the "Extrude Rooms to 3D Mass" sample that everyone seems to love so much. This sample was first released on the Case Design, Inc. free Revit Add-ins page. Now you have the opportunity to see the code and get an in-depth glimpse as to how this API sample works.

You can access the official API Sample exactly as it was used in the chapter from the main Sybex website. I will also be posting the sample to github (after the book officially publishes) where we can make updates if we need to. The sample was written in VB.NET, but a C# version may eventually get pushed into the github repo as well.
