Key Features

  • Teaches you Building Information Modeling (BIM) with Autodesk Revit
  • Shows you how to create, document and print parametric models
  • Takes you through the basics of a full structural project
  • Covers many different building types

In Detail

To take full advantage of Building Information Modeling, Autodesk Revit 2023 Structure Fundamentals has been designed to teach the concepts and principles of creating 3D parametric models of structural buildings from engineering design through construction documentation.

This learning guide is intended to introduce you to the user interface and the basic building components of the software that make it a powerful and flexible structural modeling tool. The goal is to familiarize you with the tools required to create, modify, analyze, and document the parametric model. The examples and practices are designed to take you through the basics of a full structural project, from linking in an architectural model to construction documents.
