Revit is one of the most widely-used Building Information Modeling platforms. The tools and topics covered here will show new users how to set up a Revit project and begin modeling using the conceptual massing tools. Software required: Revit 2017.
For the past several years, the process of designing, documenting, and even constructing a building has been improved and refined with the concept of BIM, Building Information Modeling. This course, Revit Architecture Conceptual Design Fundamentals, is intended for the Architects, BIM Managers, and CAD Technicians who are ready to use Revit as a Building Information Modeling platform. The tools and topics covered in this course will show new users how to set up a Revit project and begin modeling using the conceptual massing tools. First, you'll learn how to set up a Revit project. Next, you'll explore how to model building masses. Finally, you'll strengthen your knowledge by learning about generic architectural elements. By the end of this course you will be able to set up a project location, import CAD files, create a building mass, and work with sun settings for solar studies in Revit, all important skills that will help you with conceptual design. Software required: Revit 2017.
