REVIT ARCHITECTURE

Revit Architecture is a program specifically designed for architecture that uses the BIM (Building Information Modeling) system to generate and manage data about the designs, providing the user with total freedom when it comes to modeling building.This training is designed to teach you Revit functionalities and get you comfortable with its environment starting from setting up your projects to adding grids, levels and dimensions then dive into real modeling like adding walls, doors and windows. You will also learn the advance techniques for modeling stairs, complex walls, and partially obscured building elements, as well as adding rooms and solid geometry. Plus, annotate your drawings so all components are perfectly understood and output sheets to DWF, PDF, or AutoCAD.
