Revit is one of the most used programs around the world for the BIM methodology; allows you to create parametric 3D models from all AECo areas – Architecture, Engineering and Civil Construction.
This course is designed to equip trainees with the skills needed to start working with Revit. The basic concepts underlying the BIM methodology, the Revit platform, common techniques and commands and transversal application in architectural, structural and specialty projects are addressed. The course is taught with a minimum of theory and a maximum of practice using application exercises, some taken from a real context.
WHO IS IT FOR
Architects, engineers, designers, technicians, designers and anyone who wants to use Revit applying the BIM methodology.
DURATION AND LOCATION
32 hours; Aveiro
DATES AND TIME
At the end of the course, trainees should recognize Revit’s role in the framework of the BIM methodology, know and use the main tools and commands used in a transversal way in any project developed in Revit.
