Essential Training – Gateway to BIM
One of the most notable shifts in professional practice is the wide acceptance and integration of Building Information Modeling (BIM). This introduced a new way of thinking about deliverable documents and the collaborative framework that a parametrically virtual model is working to provide. BIM has become an industry-standard because of its intuitive interface and for its ability to facilitate opportunities to connect between the Architect, Consultants, and Contractor. BIM simultaneously delivers real-time working drawings and high-quality spatial renderings to streamline the concepts to working drawings process.
The topics in this Autodesk Revit Architecture training course include:
- Understanding the purpose of Building Information Modeling (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, windows, and doors.
- Adding floors, ceiling, 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.
This course will be delivered over 18 hours. Candidates will learn about:

Who Should Attend
This course is mainly intended for Architects, Interior Designers, and Draftsmen who are new to the concept of BIM (Building Information Modeling) in general and Revit Architecture in particular. Other professionals who have some basic modeling understanding may also attend to firmly grasp the essential concepts of Revit Architecture.
Attendees should have some knowledge of Architectural Design and Drafting Concepts.
