What you will learn

  • Discover how information is interrelated throughout the Revit (BIM) model
  • Design 3D building models that simultaneously document the project in schedules and in 2D construction documents
  • Acquire more advanced methods to document a project, such as scheduling building components, using the family editor to create 2D and 3D components, refining graphics, and creating an abbreviated set of construction documents
  • Model an existing single story commercial building (importing AutoCAD drawings as a base) and also create a site model
  • Create a model for a significant two-story expansion to your first building model
  • Develop a progress 30/60/90/100 percent deliverable set of Architectural Construction Documents for the commercial building and site which was created in BIM 301
  • Create plans, elevations and sections of the project and will also keynote elements of the model and develop detail drawings and schedules
  • Develop a series of architectural details for the commercial building, which are modeled in BIM 301 and BIM 302 – BIM Construction Documents

How you will benefit

  • Gain a foundational understanding of the Revit (BIM) model and learn advanced methods to document a project
  • Get hands-on learning using the Revit Architecture tools by modeling an existing commercial building and create a site model.
  • Develop your detailing skills by creating a model for a significant two-story expansion to the first building model, which is typical of projects currently being handled by AEC teams who use Revit in their offices
  • By developing a progress 30/60/90/100 percent deliverable set of architectural construction documents, you will develop the necessary detailing skills to apply in real-world projects
