The Revit Structure Professional Training Bundle is geared towards students who want to pursue careers in the Structural Engineering field. Begin with the fundamentals of Revit and BIM, then progress into the structural specifics of using Revit Structure in the BIM process. You will learn the professional workflows used in Structural Engineering offices. These series of courses will also prepare you take the Revit Certified User Certification Exam.
Our Revit classes are hands-on, real-world, project-based and instructor-led. Taught by an Autodesk Certified Instructor who is also a working professional who uses Revit and Revit Structure on a daily basis. Strong student engagement.
The courses listed below are included in this training bundle. Each course will be scheduled one at a time in the sequence listed. Each course will be scheduled immediately after one another, unless requested otherwise.
Introduction to Revit (20 Clock Hours) – Designing 3D models that simultaneously document the project in schedules and 2D architectural drawings.
Explore the Building Information Modeling (BIM) interface. Design a 3D building model to explain how information is inter-related throughout the BIM model. Integrate building components into a 3D model and develop construction document sheets from that model. Develop a project which includes stairs and “feature architectural designs” to strengthen BIM modeling skill sets.
Intermediate Revit (20 Clock Hours) – Utilizing the family editor to create 2D and 3D components, refining graphics, and construction documentation.
Integrate DWG files to create Revit details and plan views for subsequent sheet layout. Tag elements for cost estimation and material take-offs. Create 3D parametric families and show alternate views of 3D objects in plan and elevation views. Build customized door, window, and materials schedules. Explore BIM management by creating an abbreviated set of construction documents.
Revit Structure 1 (20 Clock Hours) - Designing Structural Systems in Revit.
Create an accurate structure, for use in all program aspects of designing a project and the construction of a real-world model. Design structural building systems which create buildings with structural integrity. Develop building structures which limit or prevent accidental injury or death among users of the buildings. Design and develop structural building systems.
Revit Structure 2 (30 Clock Hours) - Developing Construction Documents for Structural Systems in Revit.
Prepare a set of structural construction documents using Revit Structure incorporating the building models created in BIM 341. Produce plan, section, elevation and enlarged views of the project for sheet layout. Keynote elements of the project model. Develop schedules and a limited number of structural details extracted from the BIM model.
Introduction to Navisworks (30 Clock Hours) – Running object-interference checks on 3D models, creating 4D simulations, interactive animations, and photorealistic renderings using Navisworks.
Explore the methodologies for integrating Revit, 3D AutoCAD and compatible software programs into a Navisworks 3D model which can be used to create clash detection between various structural and MEP systems. Apply workflow strategies for efficient use of integrating various BIM models into clash detection analysis models. Create timeline animations representing 4D construction modeling and scheduling. Produce and resolve time-based clash detection reports which will minimize on-site construction change order requests.
