Revit Architecture Essentials: Revit Architecture is a powerful parametric Building Information Modeling (BIM) program that works the way Architects think. From Preliminary Design through Design Development, and into Construction Documents, the program streamlines the design process with a central 3D model.

This course covers the basics of Revit Architecture. Students are introduced to the concepts of Building Information Modeling and the tools for parametric building design and documentation. You then learn the fundamental features of Autodesk Revit Architecture, progressing through schematic design, construction documentation, and design visualization. It also covers the tools of Revit Architecture to create architectural details based on design requirements.


Designers who are familiar with AutoCAD and proficient in working with 2D and 3D objects, and who want to learn Revit Architecture.
