Autodesk Revit Architecture Migrating from AutoCAD

Course Description

Course Length = 1 day

This course is designed for students who have AutoCAD experience and have completed the Revit Architecture Essentials or Revit Structure Essentials course (or have similar experience), or who need to know how to leverage existing AutoCAD drawings.

This course builds on the Revit Architecture Essentials course. It covers a wide range of topics on how to successfully migrate from AutoCAD®, a CAD drawing-based solution, to Revit® Architecture, a 3D building information modeling solution.

Students learn how to work seamlessly with AutoCAD DWG files, including how to migrate site plans and details and make those files smarter within their Revit Architecture projects. Students also learn techniques for collaborating in a multiplatform environment.

This course offers both imperial and metric hands-on exercises representing real-world design scenarios.

Training Objectives

The primary objective of this course is to teach students how to leverage their existing AutoCAD content in Revit Architecture  projects and work seamlessly with AutoCAD drawing files.

After completing this course, students will be able to:

  • Set up a project in the Revit Architecture environment with AutoCAD data.
  • Import AutoCAD data to Revit Architecture.
  • Export Revit Architecture information to AutoCAD.
  • Share project information across multiplatform users and store project data for reuse.
