Revit Architecture for contractors
- Planning and Registration
The course lasts 1 day and costs € 595. In this Revit Architecture for Contractors course we think along with contractors to take a step in the direction of 3D architectural work. Many contractors are moving from 2D to 3D and the application of BIM is also emerging. Contractors often outsource a lot of architectural drawing work, but it is still desirable that knowledge of Revit Architecture is available within the company. This is to be able to consult 3D architectural drawings and possibly make minor adjustments yourself, and also to be a good discussion partner for architects and clients.
With Revit Architecture you can model and consult 3D architectural models. The teacher first checks with the group what knowledge of architectural drawing and knowledge of AutoCAD is already available. AutoCAD prior knowledge is not really necessary, but is usually not a disadvantage either. The teacher explains in general terms how architectural drawing has developed in recent years and where we have now arrived. The teacher also discusses the Building Information Model (BIM) and the exchange of architectural models. In AutoCAD you can still call it drawing, but in Revit Architecture it is more about assembling and modeling. Once you have a model that is well set up and filled, you can benefit enormously as an executive builder.
Part 1: Consulting architectural models in Revit
The first part starts with the Revit Architecture workspace and interface. This gives the student a good overview of the package. Then the students will open several models in Revit and do all kinds of consultations on them:
View architectural model from all sides by rotating and zooming in and out.
Dimension and measure in the model.
Generate floor plans, cross sections and views from the model.
Make small adjustments and then see how the entire model automatically takes part is being adapted. Setting up plot drawings with text, dimensions, details, quantities. After this part of the day, the participants will have the practical use of having and using realize such an architectural model.
Part 2: Building and mutating an architectural model
Before you have such a model completely complete and usable, however, it takes some work. In this part of the day, the participant will load an architectural floor plan, a DWG from AutoCAD, into Revit Architecture. That is the beginning of the model that we now continue on
to build. Participants will:
- Building walls (going from 2D to 3D)
- Making elements
- Working with drawing and editing tools
- 3D building model with walls, facades, windows and doors
- Add floors and roofs
- Ceiling drawing with lighting fixtures
- Add components such as furniture and equipment
Lesson form and teaching material.
The teacher does things and the students also do certain exercises themselves. There is room for interaction and questions. The teacher knows many useful tips and tricks. At the beginning of the course, the teacher will indicate the structure of the course.
For people who already work with Revit, the following courses are interesting Revit Architecture Basic (ATC certified) or Revit Architecture Advanced.
