Autodesk Revit: Fundamentals for Landscape Design

The Autodesk Revit software is a powerful Building Information Modeling (BIM) program that has enabled countless firms to incorporate the BIM workflow into their designs. As a key component of this workflow, Autodesk Revit allows landscape architecture firms to produce powerfully intelligent designs.

This training course has been designed to assist you in learning some of the key features of the Autodesk Revit software. The course focuses on how to create and document full 3D project models for an urban environment, as well as how to use the internal massing and site tools. The course begins by exploring the user interface and teaching the basic drawing, editing, component, and viewing tools. Then, it provides instructions on how to create and modify toposolids. This is followed by modeling hardscapes using walls, floors, and stairs, and adding and grouping elements such as trees, site furniture, and planting areas. Finally, the course concludes with explaining the processes involved in taking the model to the construction documentation phase.
