Revit Structure 2017 Fundamentals (4day)

Apr 3 2018 - 08:00 - Fredericton


What Revit Structure Fundamentals is all about!  The goal of this class is to introduce students to the software’s user interface and  the basic building components within the software that makes it a powerful  structural modeling tool. To take full advantage of BIM (Building Information  Modeling), this class has been designed to teach the processes/procedures,  from building design through construction documentation.The  intent is to familiarize you with the tools necessary to create, document,  and print your model, using Autodesk Revit Structure.


What you need to know before.  This course is designed for the Microsoft Windows user who possesses little to no  working knowledge of Revit Structure. It is however highly recommended that  students have knowledge and/or experience with structural design.
