Autodesk Revit Architecture

Free student software

Course Description

In this course on Revit Architecture, you will learn to create full 3D architectural project models and set them up in working drawings. You will spend most of the course learning to use design development tools, including building the 3D model with walls, windows, doors, floors, roofs, and stairs, and creating reflected ceiling plans and furniture plans.

You will also learn about the concepts of building information modeling (BIM) and the tools for parametric building design and documentation.

Autodesk Revit Architecture is purpose-built for BIM. BIM is an integrated process built on coordinated, reliable information about a project from design through construction and into operations. By adopting BIM, architecture firms can use this consistent information throughout the process to design and document innovative projects, accurately visualize appearance for better communication, and simulate real-world performance for better understanding of cost, scheduling, and environmental impact.

Who Should Attend
