Course: Revit Architecture Basis

  • Description
  • Planning and Registration

The program makes it possible to make drawings based on parametric models. Building Information Modeling (BIM) differs from Computer Aided Design (CAD) in that an intelligent parametric 3D model is created, from which data can be generated by various methods. This data can also be exchanged with external tools with which the model can be adapted if necessary. A change of the model is immediately implemented in all related places. The entire presentation of the model therefore remains current.

A BIM model can also contain information for different disciplines and for different construction phases (from concept to demolition). This is possible because of the underlying relational database architecture, which is called parametric change engine by the developers.

Until 2013, three versions were available (Revit Architecture / Structure / MEP), these versions are integrated in one version from Revit 2013. Since September 29, 2008, the program is also available for 'subscription' users for 64-bit systems. This environment performs better in speed and the amount of addressable memory is no longer limited, allowing larger models.

The Revit Architecture Basic course lasts 4 days and costs € 1095.


We will start with explaining the purpose of Building Information Management because this is the basis of Revit. Then we look at the Revit Architecture workspace and interface. How can Revit work with drawing and editing tools? Then attention is paid to creating levels and grids as basic elements for the model. Other matters that will be discussed:

  • Making a 3D building model with walls, facades, windows and doors
  • Adding floors and roofs to the building model
  • Making standard and custom stairs
  • Ceiling drawing with lighting fixtures
  • Adding components: such as furniture and equipment
  • Setting up plot drawings with text, dimensions, details, quantities
  • Making details

After this course, the Revit Architecture Advanced course follows.

Learning objectives during this course:

  • Become familiar with BIM
  • Use functions within Revit
  • Being able to make drawings including information
