REVIT: ARCHITECTURE (METRIC)
Learn the basics of using Revit for architectural design. This course is designed for students who have no prior Revit experience and want to work in metric units (meters, millimeters, etc.). It is a beginner's course that approaches Revit from the ground up. Fundamentals and good work habits are emphasized every step of the way.
First, get comfortable with the Revit environment, and learn to set up a project and add the grids, levels, and dimensions that will anchor your design. Then course teacher helps you dive into modeling: adding walls, doors, and windows; creating and mirroring groups; linking to external assets and DWG files; and working with floors, roofs, and ceilings.
Course teacher also shows advanced techniques for modeling stairs, complex walls, and partially obscured building elements, as well as adding rooms and solid geometry. Finally, discover how to annotate your drawings so all the components are clearly understood, and learn how to output sheets to DWF, PDF, or AutoCAD.
REVIT: MEP (METRIC)
MEP (mechanical, electrical, and plumbing) design is one of the major components of the BIM chain—and Revit is the design tool of choice for many MEP engineers. This course focuses on the MEP features of Revit, the latest version of the software. It's designed for the novice user who prefers to work in metric units (meters, centimeters, etc.). The videos are broken down into trades, as follows:
You can dive into a specific trade, or take the entire course to learn about all aspects of the vast Revit MEP ecosystem. Upon completion, you'll know how to create basic floor plans, design electric circuits and lighting systems, model air intake and exhaust systems, create plumbing plans, and design fire alarm and sprinkler systems, and document your designs for construction and fabrication.
Revit is a great program for structural engineering, offering cutting-edge tools for creating design alternatives, building simulations, and publishing clear, easy-to-share documentation. This course focuses on the major components of Revit used for structural design and is designed for the user who prefers to work in imperial units (inches and feet).
Starting with referencing an architectural model, you'll learn how to add foundations, rebar, and framing; set up views and drawings; model slabs and trusses; and build a whole lot more. This course is designed for members with no Revit experience, or for more advanced users who want to jump to a topic and start from there. Either way, this comprehensive course will teach you what you need to know to be dangerous in Revit structure.
