Autodesk Revit Architecture Conceptual Design & Visualization

Course Description

Course Length = 1 day
AIA CES Credits = 7

This course is designed for experienced users of Revit Architecture.

As architects and designers start a project, they frequently think about the overall massing of a building or the area of the footprint. Autodesk® Revit® Architecture, using its powerful Building Information Modeling (BIM) engine, includes tools for creating mass elements that can be modified into many shapes. You can then apply walls, roofs, and floors to them to continue designing. You can also access space planning tools for setting up areas for rooms and applying colors to them to show the connections. For presentations, you can create and render perspective views. The objective of the Autodesk Revit Architecture Conceptual Design & Visualization training guide is to enable students who have worked with Autodesk Revit Architecture to expand their knowledge in the areas of Conceptual Design, including massing studies, space planning, visualization, and rendering.

Training Objectives

After completing this course, students will be able to:

  • Create In-Place Conceptual Mass elements and Conceptual Mass families
  • Create building elements from massing studies
  • Use Rooms and Areas for space planning and analysis
  • Create perspectives, walkthroughs, and solar studies
  • Render views that include materials, lighting, and enhancements such as people and plants.
