Course Description

The Revit platform is Autodeskˇ¦s purpose-built solution for building information modeling (BIM), which is changing the way how architects and engineers create and manage their designs. With Revitˇ¦s parametric design engine, a dynamic 3D model is generated to replace a whole series of traditional CAD drawings. BIM assembles all information into one location and cross-link data intelligently. A change in one view of the model will propagate to all other views of the same model to update related changes, allowing designers to have a much more effective way to create, control, and display information. BIM improves visualization, minimizes errors, save costs, and allows better predictability and planning.

The course aims at providing professional training for participants to acquire the knowledge and skills to use the Building Information Modeling (BIM) technology provided by Autodesk Revit 2016. Upon course completion, you will be able to:

  • understand the benefits of building information modeling
  • use Revit Architecture and parametric 3D design tools to design projects, create detailing and drafting views, create conceptual designs, create construction documentation, and use the presentation tools for presenting models

Course Duration

30 Hours

Course Prerequisites

A working knowledge of Microsoft Windows XP or a later Windows version. No previous CAD experience is necessary; however, architectural design, drafting, or engineering experience is highly recommended.
