Get hands-on with intermediate level skills in Revit for architectural design. In this course you will expand upon fundamental BIM concepts and techniques in Revit across space planning, phased design, design options, construction documentation, and digital fabrication to provide you with confidence in creating your own design projects. BIM is fast becoming the industry standard for architectural design and construction modeling due to its superior ability to integrate project data across the full range of architectural documents.
Revit BIM software is specifically built for Building Information Modeling (BIM), including features for architectural design, MEP and structural engineering, and construction. Revit is a single software application that supports a BIM workflow from concept to construction. Use Revit to model designs with precision, optimize performance, and collaborate more effectively.
In this course, we will cover the following topics:
- Space planning: areas and space plans
- Phased design and design options
- Building documentation: wall sections and enlarged details and annotations, and schedules
- Digital fabrication: create an architectural component in Fusion 360, fabricate it, and import geometry into Revit

What will you learn in this course?
By the end of this course you will...
- Understand how to add metadata to Building Information Modeling spatial model elements for areas and spaces.
- Develop views of your project that represent time-based sequences of a project for either new construction or renovations to existing buildings.
- Create multiple design options to explore and evaluate different design paths within a singular model for exterior and interior design.
- Learn effective building documentation techniques for presenting your designs through building sections, wall sections, enlarged details, and schedules.
- Learn about design processes that support digital fabrication for architectural building components
Who is the target audience?
This course is for intermediate level users of Revit. Knowledge of 3D modeling and Revit is required. If you are new to BIM and Revit, check out the Introduction to BIM course to get up and running with BIM.
What are the requirements?
- The course uses Revit 2015. While the course can be used with higher versions of Revit please be aware that there may be some variations to commands and workflows.
