Revit Architecture 2016 Essentials

Software Overview:

Autodesk Revit Architecture 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



Course Objectives:

Enable students to create full 3D architectural project models and set them up in working drawings. This training is designed to teach you Autodesk Revit functionality as you would work with it in the design process.


Course Description:

You begin by learning about the user interface and Autodesk Revit commands for design development followed by those available for construction documentation.

This training focuses on basic tools that the majority of students need to work with Autodesk Revit Architecture. Topics include:

·         Understand the purpose of Building Information Management (BIM) and how it is applied in Revit

·         Navigating the Revit Architecture workspace and interface

·         Working with the basic drawing and editing tools in Revit

·         Creating Levels and Grids as datum elements for the model

·         Creating a 3D building model with walls, curtain walls, windows, and doors

·         Adding floors and roofs to the building model

·         Creating component-based and custom stairs

·         Detailing Reflected Ceiling Plans with ceilings and lighting fixtures

·         Adding component features, such as furniture and equipment

·         Setting up sheets for plotting with text, dimensions, details, tags, and schedules

·         Creating details


An understanding of Architectural terminology is an asset.
