Fundamentals of Revit Architecture Training Course Description:

This Fundamentals of Revit Architecture training course will give you everything you need to start using Autodesk Revit! Autodesk’s Revit is building information modeling (BIM) software used by architects, MEP and structural engineers, designers, and contractors. Revit gives users the ability to design structures in 3D, annotate with 2D drafting elements, and access building information from the building model’s database. Revit allows users to plan an entire project and store it in a single database file. Design workflows are greatly streamlined by Revit’s ability to propagate changes made in one place to other parts of the model.

In ThinkB!G’s 4-day, hands-on Fundamentals of Revit Architecture training class, you will learn to create a Revit project and discover the advantages of working with 3D model. Class begins with training on the user interface and terminology and continues on with creating actual sample models in the Revit software.
