Revit Intermediate Architecture and Structure

Duration: 36 hours

Teaching Methodolody: Hands on

DESCRIPTION

This course addresses architects way of thinking. It starts with sites, conceptual designs, families, and then proceeds to the development and detailing phases.

The AutodeskĀ® RevitĀ® software comes with an extensive library of walls, wall sweeps, doors, windows, slabs, roofs, stairs, handrails, etc. However, architects and draftsmen often need to create custom styles to meet the design needs. This course focuses on the detail aspects of the building elements as well as rendering tools.

Structure engineers will proceed to learn topics that are specific to them such as reinforcements, connections, analytics, loads, and automatic reinforcement generation.
