Revit Architecture Fundamentals

If you want to get up to speed quickly and be able to make the most of this powerful BIM software, look no further than this hands-on course. Step-by-step instructions walk you through the entire design, documentation, and presentation process for a four-story office building. Even if you are completely new to Revit Architecture, you’ll learn to use the software by creating an actual design from start to finish.

You’ll start with a tour of the tools, views, and interface. Then you’ll follow a real-world workflow as you place walls, doors, and windows, build floors layer by layer, and add stairs, ramps, ceilings, and roofs. You’ll master detailing, and finally explore site considerations that you’ll integrate into your design. Taught in release 2016.
