Autodesk™ Revit® Fundamentals

This is a three week, 18-hour course and the cost is $450. Course materials included. Sessions meet twice weekly from 6:00pm – 9:00pm.

Produce 3D building models

Learn how to use Autodesk™ Revit®’s building modeler. Develop design ideas and create full 3D architectural project models. Because 3D designs are created from the first stage, you can easily produce plan, section and elevation drawings. Cover the foundations of creating a generic structure in the Revit® project environment using many of the tools that would be used in a day-to-day production environment.

The following topics are a guideline to course content and may be subject to change by the instructor:

  • The basics of Revit®
  • Creating views of the model
  • Setting up levels and grids
  • Creating walls, floors, ceilings, roofs
  • Creating stairs, railings, ramps
  • Creating curtain walls
  • Adding components to the model
  • Making design changes
  • Creating and printing sheets
  • Adding annotations and detailing a sheet

Revit® is a sophisticated environment that refines 3D drafting for designers, technicians, planners, engineers, project architects, artists and all those who need to stay on top of current trends and technologies. It is used industry- wide to set the standard for efficiency and productivity.

Who should attend Revit® Fundamentals?

This advanced course is for drafters, designers or architects in the beginning stages of working with Autodesk® Revit®

Working knowledge of Windows 2000 or Windows XP, some drafting, design, or engineering experience is recommended, but is not required.

Autodesk™ Revit® MEP Fundamentals

This is a three week, 18-hour course and the cost is $450. Course materials included. Sessions meet twice weekly from 6:00pm – 9:00pm.

Produce 3D MEP Building Information Models (BIM)

Learn how to use Autodesk™ Revit® MEP's building system modeler. Develop design ideas and create full 3D mechanical, electrical and plumbing models. Leverage the Building Information Modeling (BIM) 3D model to run energy analysis and receive accurate Heating and cooling loads. Because 3D designs are created from the first stage, you can easily produce plan, section and elevation drawings. Cover the foundations of creating a generic MEP model in the Revit® MEP project environment using many of the tools that would be used in a day-to-day production environment.

The following topics are a guideline to course content and may be subject to change by the instructor:

  • The basics of Revit® MEP
  • Linking in Architectural Model
  • Creating views of the model
  • Performing Energy Analysis
  • Creating HVAC Systems
  • Creating Hydronic Systems
  • Creating Plumbing Systems
  • Creating Lighting and Power Plans
  • Making design changes
  • Creating and printing sheets
  • Adding annotations and detailing a sheet
