RS101: Revit Fundamentals for Structure
September 14, 15, 16, 21, 22, 23
The Revit Fundamentals for Structure course has been designed to teach the concepts and principles of creating 3D parametric models of structural buildings from engineering design through construction documentation.
This course is intended to introduce you to the user interface and the basic building components of the software that makes Revit a powerful and flexible structural modeling tool. The goal is to familiarize you with the tools required to create, modify, analyze, and document a 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.
- Introduction to the Revit software
- Basic drawing and editing tools
- Setting up levels and grids
