Revit Architecture Essentials

Course Description

The Autodesk® Revit® Architecture software is a powerful Building Information Modeling (BIM) program that works the way Architects think. From Preliminary Design through Design Development, and into Construction Documents, the program streamlines the design process with a central 3D model. Changes made in one view update across all views and on the printable sheets. This course is designed to teach you the Autodesk Revit functionality as you would work with it in the design process. You begin by learning about the user interface and the Autodesk Revit commands for design development followed by those available for construction documentation.

Since building projects themselves tend to be extremely complex, the Autodesk Revit Architecture software is also complex. The objective of the Autodesk Revit Architecture Essentials course is to enable students to create full 3D architectural project models and set them up in working drawings. This course focuses on basic tools that the majority of students need to work with the Autodesk Revit.

This course is designed for new users of Revit Architecture.
