Revit Architecture - Advanced



This live online hands on class builds on CAD Training Online's Revit Architecture 2010 Introduction and Revit Architecture 2010 Intermediate training guides. This advanced class focuses on Revit Architecture 2010's Preliminary Design and BIM Management features.

The first half of the class covers conceptual design tools including working with mass elements, space planning and area analysis as well as Visualization tools for creating perspectives, walk- throughs, and solar studies. It also includes a chapter on rendering with a focus on setting up lighting for the rendering.

The second half of the class focuses on topics a BIM manager would need to know including customizing templates with annotation styles, titleblocks, objects style and materials as well as creating custom object types (walls, roofs, and floors) and complex families. The concepts and details of creating families is covered step-by-step with a special section on how to create various types of families.


The objective of this class is to enable students who have worked with Revit to expand their knowledge in the areas of Preliminary Design (massing studies, space planning, visualization, and rendering) and BIM Management (setting up Revit and creating custom families).


Before taking this course, students should be comfortable with the fundamentals of Revit as taught in the Revit Architecture Intermediate training class, as well as have a working knowledge of the Revit Architecture Intermediate tools. Knowledge of basic tools is assumed, such as creating walls, roofs, and other objects; copying and moving objects; and creating and working with views.
