Revit Architecture Fundamentals

This comprehensive course dives into the essential skills required to use Autodesk Revit to design and share information between BIM Project teams.

You will learn how to draw, and modify Architectural Elements in 3D using the toolsets. We will also explore the ability to extract information and data from the Building Information Model to create schedules and basic takeoffs.


An understanding of Architectural terminology is recommended, as well as a good functional understanding of Microsoft Windows 7 or later. Previous CAD knowledge would benefit but is not essential.
