Autodesk Revit: Fundamentals for Architecture

The Autodesk Revit software is a powerful Building Information Modeling (BIM) program that works the way architects think. The program streamlines the design process through the use of a central 3D model, where changes made in one view update across all views and on the printable sheets.

The objective of the Autodesk Revit Fundamentals for Architecture course is to enable you to create a full 3D architectural project model, including walls, doors, windows, components, floors, ceilings, roofs, and stairs, using the basic tools that the majority of architectural users need. This includes how to navigate the user interface and use the basic drawing, editing, and viewing tools. The final part of the course focuses on creating construction documents.

"IMAGINiT provides excellent service for Autodesk training. The class was much more well organized than others I’ve taken. The text book was actually useful and we used it thorough out the course. Max Nichols was able to answer every question we gave him and focused on any additional areas we were interested in. I highly recommend Imaginit and Max to other colleagues and friends."
