Revit : Custom Training for Mechanical Trade
This custom trade-specific course has been developed to teach Revit® to Mechanical design, engineering, or construction teams.
Building Information Modeling (BIM) is an approach to the entire building life cycle. Autodesk® Revit® is a powerful BIM program that supports the ability to coordinate, update, and share design data with team members throughout the design construction and management phases of a building’s life.
To take full advantage of BIM, this custom trade-specific course has been developed to teach Mechanical design, engineering, or construction teams, the concepts and principles of creating 3D parametric models from engineering design through construction documentation.
The class is intended to introduce students to the software’s user interface and the components that make Revit® a powerful and flexible design / engineering modeling tool. This course will familiarize students with the tools required to create, document, and print the parametric model. The examples and practices are designed to take students through the steps of creating a Revit® project, including setting up office standards with templates that include annotation styles, preset views, sheets, and schedules.
Note: Enrollment in the Revit® Collaboration Tools 1-day class is highly recommended as the next step to maximize Revit® usage on a project, which will include worksharing, coordination review, and checking for interferences.
