This course covers basic Revit Architecture BIM concepts. Topics include project creation, basic display concepts, components, levels, walls, doors, windows, floor and roof objects, stairs and railings, view properties, family components, dimensions, basic annotations, drawing sheets and plotting procedures.
The delivery format of this course is via self-directed, video lectures and demonstrations, PDF manuals, and online support via web-based discussion groups and email support.
This course is designed for the full, Windows version of Revit. Regarding running Revit on a Mac, the best solution is to use the Mac’s Bootcamp utility and have a copy of Windows installed on its own partition. Parallels Desktop will also work and will allow you to install the full PC version of Revit on your Mac.
Although there is an “Revit for Mac” version available, it is not widely used and is missing many of the features found in the full Windows version of Revit. The current Mac version will work for the level one course but if you continue your training with the intermediate and advanced courses, the further you go the more you will run into features that simply do not exist on the Mac software.
Upon successful completion of this course, the students will have reliably demonstrated the ability to:
- Create and modify wall types with Revit
- Create and modify parametric components with Revit
- Create and modify parametric, 3D building models with Revit
- Work with the Revit display system to create floor plans, reflected ceiling plans, and presentation plans from a single building model.
- Extract and annotate Floor plan drawings from a 3D Building model.
- Extract and annotate Elevation drawings from a 3D building model.
- Extract and annotate Section and Detail drawings from a 3D building model.
- Generate camera views of a 3D building model.
Students can get a receive a free copy of the latest version Revit from Autodesk (valid for one year) by going here.
