In Detail

Autodesk Revit boasts powerful tools that allow you to efficiently plan and manage your projects and visualize your designs.

You will begin by moving around in Revit before discussing the tools you'll need to begin setting up a project. Then you'll cover the basic tools and methods for building a 3D model using all of the most common tools. Then you will create custom elements that allow you to add a level of detail and design to make your projects unique.

You will then learn 2D modeling; we will be looking at many of the tools that help round-out a good drawing set; from dimensions, to two-dimensional linework and fill regions—everything from the stock materials built into Revit, to creating custom textures to get the look you’re after. After learning 2D models you will create 3D views, all of the settings that are associated with the internal rendering engine

Finally, we will discuss tools and processes by which you can produce a full construction document or presentation drawing set; this will include title blocks, sheets, and custom schedules, as well as how to save a set of drawings as a PDF or print them as hard copies.


If you want to improve your drawing skills, get tips and tricks from an industry professional, and are interested in structural modeling, analysis, and design, then this is the course you need to get you up-and-running with Autodesk Revit quickly!
