Autodesk Revit: Fundamentals for Structure

To take full advantage of Building Information Modeling, this Autodesk Revit: Fundamentals for Structure training course has been designed to teach the concepts and principles of creating 3D parametric models of structural buildings from engineering design through construction documentation.

This course is intended to introduce you to the user interface and the basic building components of the software that makes Autodesk Revit a powerful and flexible structural modeling tool. The goal is to familiarize you with the tools required to create, modify, analyze, and document a parametric model. The examples and practices are designed to take you through the basics of a full structural project, from linking in an architectural model to construction documents.
