Simplifying the Revit Template Creation Process

August 15 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm EDT

A productive and efficient Revit design environment depends upon having well developed templates, with the data, families, and parameters you need for your work already in place and properly defined. The issue is, that’s not a small task to accomplish, particularly when most of us still need to maintain billable hours and meet project scheduling demands. Learning the detailed practices for developing reliable templates that meet our firms’ specific needs isn’t always easy, even though we all recognize how important it is. Luckily, ZenTek Consultants, the nation’s leading design technology specialists are here to help. This course will show you how to quickly, and efficiently, build the Revit templates you’ve always wanted.

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, and address questions as the class progresses.

Note: Instructor will present using Autodesk Revit 2024. Students who wish to follow along with instructor are encouraged to use the same version.
