Revit Training Modules
Autodesk Revit Architecture Fundamentals
Duration: 4 days
This training is designed to teach you the Autodesk Revit functionality as you would work with it throughout the design process. You begin by learning about the user interface and basic drawing, editing, and viewing tools. Then you learn design development tools including how to model walls, doors, windows, floors, ceilings, stairs and more. Finally, you learn the processes that take the model to the construction documentation phase.
Since building projects are extremely complex, the Autodesk Revit software is also complex. The objective of the Autodesk Revit Architecture Fundamentals is enabling students to create full 3D architectural project models and set them up in working drawings. This training focuses on basic tools that the majority of users need. Topics covered include:
- Understanding the purpose of Building Information Management (BIM) and how it is applied in the Autodesk Revit software
- Navigating the Autodesk Revit workspace and interface
- Working with the basic drawing and editing tools
- Creating Levels and Grids as datum elements for the model
- Creating a 3D building model with walls, curtain walls, windows, and doors
- Adding floors, ceilings, and roofs to the building model
- Creating component-based and custom stairs
- Adding component features, such as furniture and equipment
- Setting up sheets for plotting with text, dimensions, details, tags, and schedules
- Creating details
An understanding of Architectural terminology is an asset
Autodesk Revit MEP Fundamentals
Duration: 4 days
To take full advantage of Building Information Modeling, the Autodesk® Revit® MEP Fundamentals training has been designed to teach the concepts and principles of creating 3D parametric models of MEP system from engineering design through construction documentation. The training is intended to introduce students to the software’s user interface and the basic HVAC, electrical, and piping/plumbing components that make the Autodesk Revit software a powerful and flexible engineering modeling tool. The training will also familiarize students with the tools necessary to create, document, and print the parametric model. The examples and practices are designed to take the students through the basics of a full MEP project from linking in an architectural model to construction documents. The topics include the following:
- Working with the Autodesk Revit software’s basic viewing, drawing, and editing commands.
- Inserting and connecting MEP components and using the System Browser.
- Working with linked architectural files.
- Creating spaces and zones so that you can analyze heating and cooling loads.
- Creating HVAC networks with air terminals, mechanical equipment, ducts, and pipes.
- Creating plumbing networks with plumbing fixtures and pipes.
- Creating electrical circuits with electrical equipment, devices, and lighting fixtures and adding cable trays and conduits.
- Creating HVAC and plumbing systems with automatic duct and piping layouts.
- Testing duct, piping and electrical systems.
- Creating and annotating construction documents.
- Adding tags and creating schedules.
- Detailing in the Autodesk Revit software.
It is highly recommended that students have experience and knowledge in MEP engineering and its terminology.
Autodesk Revit Structure Fundamentals
Duration: 4 days
To take full advantage of Building Information Modeling, the Autodesk® Revit® Structure Fundamentals training has been designed to teach the concepts and principles from building design through construction documentation using the Autodesk® Revit® Structure software. This training is intended to introduce students to the user interface and the basic building components of the software that makes it a powerful and flexible structural modeling tool. The goal is to familiarize you with the tools necessary to create, modify, analyze, and document the parametric model. The topics include the following:
- Introduction to the Autodesk Revit software
- Basic drawing and editing tools
- Setting up levels and grids
- Working with views
- Starting a structural project based on a linked architectural model
- Adding structural columns and walls
- Adding foundations and structural slabs
- Structural reinforcement
- Beams, trusses, and framing systems
- Analytical models and placing loads
- Project practices to reinforce learning
- Construction documents
- Annotating construction documents
It is highly recommended that students have experience and knowledge in structural design and its terminology.
Autodesk Revit BIM Management: Template and Family Creation
Duration: 2 days
Building Information Modeling (BIM) is an approach to the entire building life cycle. Autodesk® Revit® Architecture, Autodesk® Revit® MEP, and Autodesk® Revit® Structure are powerful BIM programs that support the ability to coordinate, update, and share design data with team members throughout the design construction and management phases of a building’s life. A key component in managing the BIM process is to establish a company foundation for different types of projects by creating standard templates and custom elements. Having this in place makes the process of any new project flow smoothly and efficiently.
The objective of the Autodesk® Revit® BIM Management: Template and Family Creation training is to enable students who have worked with the software to expand their knowledge in setting up office standards with templates that include annotation styles, preset views, sheets, and schedules, as well as creating custom element types and families. This training is suitble for any of the Autodesk Revit software programs (i.e., Architecture, MEP, or Structure), or a combination of them as it contains practices that are specific to each discipline. Topics covered:
- Create custom templates with annotation styles, title blocks, and custom element types
- Create schedules, including material takeoff schedules with formula
- Create custom wall, roof, and floor types as well as MEP system families
- Set up a component family file with a parametric framework
- Create family geometry
- Create family types
- Create specific families, including in-place families, profiles, annotations, and parameters
The training also contains discipline-specific practices for families, including: doors, windows, railings, pipe fittings, light fixtures, gusset plates, and built-up columns.
Students should be comfortable with the fundamentals of the Autodesk Revit software, as found in the Autodesk Revit Architecture Fundamentals, Autodesk Revit Structure Fundamentals, or Autodesk Revit MEP Fundamentals training. Knowledge of basic techniques is assumed, such as creating standard element, copying and moving elements, and creating and working with views, etc. Information on Collaboration Tools, Conceptual Design, and Site and Structural Design are covered in additional training modules.
Autodesk Revit Collaboration Tools
Duration: 1 day
Autodesk® Revit® is a Building Information Modeling (BIM) tool, which can be used by more than one person working on a new project. This is an important feature in collaboration within a project, between projects, and with other users, firms, and disciplines.
The objective of the Autodesk® Revit® Collaboration Tools training is to enable students, who have a basic knowledge of Autodesk Revit, to increase their productivity while working with other people on a team, either in the same firm or other firms as well as with other disciplines. It also covers linking Autodesk Revit files and linking or importing other CAD files. The training covers Autodesk® Revit® Architecture, Autodesk® Revit® MEP, and Autodesk® Revit® Structure. Practices are available for each of the disciplines. Topic include:
- Set up project phasing
- Create and display a variety of design options
- Use groups
- Link Autodesk Revit files
- Use multi-discipline coordination including Copy/Monitor and Coordination Review.
- Import and export vector and raster files including exporting Autodesk Revit models for energy analysis
- Understand, use, and setup worksets
Students should be comfortable with the fundamentals of Autodesk Revit as taught in Autodesk Revit Architecture, MEP, or Structure Fundamentals. Knowledge of basic techniques is assumed, such as creating typical elements as well as copying and moving objects, creating and working with views, etc
