CAD 166 - Introduction to Revit 4 Credits, 6 Contact Hours
3 lecture periods 3 lab periods
Introduction to Building Information Modeling (BIM) for architectural applications using Revit. Includes how to access tools, build a parametric model, reference levels and views, and produce drawing sheets. Create 3-dimensional elements (families) that contain variable characteristics and embed design intent. Extract, analyze, and modify model information by generating additional section views, rendered perspectives, and schedules.
Information: For individuals with no BIM experience.
