Building Information Modeling is a powerful tool, but it’s not the answer to everything. The truth is that some jobs just don’t warrant, or require, fully-developed 3D models with advanced BIM Level-Of-Development features. In truth, BIM can be overkill for most of the projects you run as a small-medium sized design firm. There is still a very large need for intelligent, 2D design files and one of the most powerful tools out there to help you complete those jobs is AutoCAD Architecture. With built-in features for generating dynamic plans, walls sections, details, and elevations, this highly-customizable program is the premiere design tool for the architectural world. If you’re looking to get fast, reliable output of construction documents that you can actually build from – without the complexity and overhead of developing BIM models – then ZenTek Consultants is here to help!
This eight (8) hour course is delivered in four (4), two-hour long sessions that students can attend online, right from their own desk. A live instructor will explain the detailed functions of AutoCAD Architecture, and address questions as the class progresses.
