Revit Advanced


This course teaches Architects how to master advanced 3D modelling techniques in Revit. Students will learn how to use conceptual massing tools and create complex roof shapes and custom families. Students will also learn how to link Grasshopper to Revit and model structural beams and construction planes and create components that are able to adapt.
Best for:

Designers looking to master advanced BIM techniques.

Difficulty:
Duration:
3.5 Hours

Learning Objectives


  1. Participants will be able to model complex 3D architectural designs such as faceted Curtain Walls and Curved Brick Facades using Revit software.
  2. Participants will be able to swiftly transfer modelled elements between the Rhino and Revit software’s to create more complex 3D architectural designs.
  3. Participants will be able to add constraints and rules into their project to design intelligent 3D architectural designs using Revit software.
  4. Participants will be able to create and apply custom architectural templates for use across multiple projects to display and document 3D architectural designs using Revit software.
