From foundations and footings to trusses and detailed structural connections, this class is custom built for those who work full-time in the structural design world. Revit is the most popular BIM software in the world, and a full understanding of the tools and processes inside of it, as they relate to building structures, is vital to every firm and designer in this industry. If you’re tired of courses that brush past structural work in favor of architectural-focused tools and settings, then this is the course for you. This course was developed entirely around the vital structural processes and tools inside Revit, and how to implement and use them on real world projects. We will show you how to increase productivity and profitability on every one of your structural jobs using the Revit tools you already own.
Note: Instructor will present using Autodesk Revit 2021. Students who wish to follow along with instructor are encouraged to use the same version. Students should have a solid understanding of Revit or have taken the Revit Exploring the Essentials course.
