  • Teaches you to create full 3D architectural models and set them up in working drawings
  • Prepares you for the Autodesk Revit Architecture Certification exam

In Detail

The Autodesk Revit software is a powerful Building Information Modeling (BIM) program that works the way architects think. The program streamlines the design process through the use of a central 3D model, where changes made in one view update across all views and on the printable sheets.

The objective of the Autodesk Revit 2020 Architecture Fundamentals learning guide is to enable you to create a full 3D architectural project model including walls, doors, windows, components, floors, ceilings, roofs, stairs, the basic tools that the majority of architectural users need. This includes how to navigate the user interface and use the basic drawing, editing, and viewing tools. The final part of the course focuses on creating construction documents.

Topics covered

  • Understand the purpose of Building Information Management (BIM) and how it is applied in the Autodesk Revit software
  • Navigating the Autodesk Revit workspace and interface
  • Working with the basic sketching and modifying tools
  • Linking CAD and Revit files as the basis of a project
