IMAGINiT Technologies – Revit Architectural Fundamentals

Revit Architecture is a powerful Building Information Modeling (BIM) program that works the way architects think. From preliminary design through design development and into construction documents, the program streamlines the design process with a central 3D model. Changes made in one view update across all views and on the printable sheets. This student guide program is designed to teach you the Revit functionality as you would work with it in the design process. It begins with learning about the user interface and Revit commands for design development followed by those available for construction documentation. Since building projects themselves tend to be extremely complex, Revit Architecture is a necessarily complex program. The objective of the Revit Architecture Fundamentals course is to enable participants to create full 3D architectural project models and set them up in working drawings. This program focuses on basic tools that the majority of users will require to work with Revit Architecture. It takes place May 9-12, 2011 at #15 – 10551 Shellbridge Way, Richmond.
