Designed to integrate 3D visualization with technical drawing, Revit Architecture is a powerful computer software package used to develop design ideas from a napkin sketch through construction drawings. Students will learn the fundamental concepts of the program from instructors who use the program every day. The group will start by learning basic operations of creating walls, windows, floors and laying out their work on sheets. The instructors will discuss the practical advantages of implementing the software in a work environment and how collaboration happens with other disciplines. On day two, instructors will answer questions from the previous day and then dive into new topics such as rendering, shadows, dimensioning, and project rigor. Students will need to bring their own laptop loaded with a free trial version of the latest software and a two-button mouse with a scroll wheel. Revit Architecture runs on PC or Mac provided your machine meets the minimum system requirements.
