Revit Architecture Basic
The program makes it possible to create drawings based on parametric models. Building Information Modeling (BIM) differs from Computer Aided Design ( CAD) because an intelligent parametric 3d model is created, where data can be generated from various methods. This data can also be exchanged with external tools with which the model can be adapted. A change of the model is immediately implemented in all related places. The entire presentation of the model remains up to date.
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.
Up to 2013, three versions were available (Revit Architecture / Structure / MEP), these versions were integrated in one version from Revit 2013. Since September 29, 2008, the program is also available for 64-bit systems for ‘subscription’ users. This environment performs better in terms of speed and the amount of addressable memory is no longer limited, making larger models possible.
The course Revit Architecture Basis lasts 4 days and costs € 1095, -.
There is kicked off by 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 issues that are discussed:
- Making a 3D building model with walls, facades, windows and doors
- Adding floors and roofs of the building model
- Making standard and custom staircases
- Ceiling drawing with lighting fixtures
- Adding components: such as furniture and equipment
- Set up plot drawings with text, dimensions, details, quantities
- Creating details
After this course, the course follows Revit Architecture Advanced.
Learning objectives during this course:
- Become familiar with BIM
- Use functions within Revit
- Being able to make drawings including information
