Autodesk Revit Family Creation for MEP
Duration: 01 day(s)
Building Information Modeling (BIM) is an approach to the entire building life cycle. Autodesk Revit for Architecture is a powerful BIM program that supports the ability to coordinate, update, and share design data with team members throughout the design construction and management phases of a building’s life. Families are the backbone of Autodesk Revit. They are the elements you add as you model a building and its services, as well as the tools you use as you are annotating views.

The objective of the Autodesk Revit Family Creation for MEP training course is to enable users who have worked with the software to expand their knowledge in creating custom system, in-place, and component families.

This Autodesk Revit training course contains practices that are specific to MEP discipline.
