Throughout this course I will be using the 2018 metric version in conjunction with the UK component library. If you are using the Imperial version and / or a different regional library, don’t worry. All the steps and process will be the same.
As with BIM you work solely on one single project, so I have constructed this course in the same manner. We will be modelling one single project throughout the course.
If you do not have previous experience with Revit or any CAD-based software, don’t worry. I will start off from the beginning building you up to be more than capable at creating your own Revit models.
The course will start off with the basics; from the terminology which Revit uses to the tools and interface.
We will then begin to build on our project, introducing a new tool and feature as we progress.
Adding in the datum elements; such as the levels and grids.
Structural components; such as the Structural and Architectural columns
Major and Minor Components like the; walls, windows, doors, floors, stairs, ceilings, curtain walls and roofs.
We will then take it to the next level and learn how to create 2D details, how to tag the components, create schedules & legends, creating render images and video walk-throughs.
Finally, we will set up our sheets and send it to print.
Alongside the videos, I have supplied you with course notes to follow along with as well as some files to work with.
When we complete this course you will have the skills and knowledge to take a project from start to finish using the tools and library provided by Autodesk.
So let’s get started!
What you’ll learn
- When you complete this course you will have the skills and knowledge to take a project from start to finish using the tools and library provided by Autodesk.
- Students should have a good working knowledge of how to use a PC
- Previous experience on a CAD program is not essential but will benefit the student
- Revit 2018/19 installed, 30-day trial available from Autodesk
- Revit is not supported on MAC, you will have to Bootcamp your MAC and install Windows to run Revit
- Course notes and files will be provided
- A second screen is recommended to view the videos while using Revit on the other
