Autodesk Revit Architecture 2018 Training Course - Revit Architecture Fundamentals

Autodesk Authorized Professional COURSEWARE

PRO Trainers IT uses the following Autodesk Official Training Guide to help students learn Autodesk Revit:


Revit architecture fundamentals - 32 hours or extended version - 40 hours
.


The Autodesk® Revit® software is a powerful Building Information Modeling (BIM) program that works the way architects think. The program streamlines the design process through the use of a central 3D model, where changes made in one view update across all views and on the printable sheets. 

This training guide is designed to teach you the Autodesk Revit functionality as you would work with it throughout the design process. You begin by learning about the user interface and basic drawing, editing, and viewing tools. Then you learn design development tools including how to model walls, doors, windows, floors, ceilings, stairs and more. Finally, you learn the processes that take the model to the construction documentation phase.

Since building projects are extremely complex, the Autodesk Revit software is also complex. The objective of the Autodesk Revit Architecture Fundamentals training guide is to enable students to create full 3D architectural project models and set them up in working drawings. This training guide focuses on basic tools that the majority of users need.

Revit Fundamentals covers the essential tools found in the official guide.
Revit Conceptual Design and Visualization, Revit Site and Structural Design, and Revit for Landscape Architecture provide additional practice and extensive coverage of basic and advanced tools.

Revit Fundamentals is the recommended course to get started with Revit.

Topics Covered:

  • Understanding the purpose of Building Information Management (BIM) and how it is applied in the Autodesk Revit software.
  • Navigating the Autodesk Revit workspace and interface.
  • Working with the basic drawing and editing tools.
  • Creating Levels and Grids as datum elements for the model.
  • Creating a 3D building model with walls, curtain walls, windows, and doors.
  • Adding floors, ceilings, and roofs to the building model.
  • Creating component-based and custom stairs.
  • Adding component features, such as furniture and equipment.
  • Setting up sheets for plotting with text, dimensions, details, tags, and schedules.
  • Creating details.
  • Working with families, parametric design (only available in Revit Advanced)
  • Advanced 3D modeling tools (Advanced)
  • Rendering, lights, materials (advanced)
  • Integration with other 3D modeling programs (advanced)
Prerequisites:
  • An understanding of architectural terminology is an asset.
  • A working knowledge of basic design/drafting procedures and terminology is an asset
  • A working knowledge of your operating system.
