Revit Architecture Intro

Autodesk REVIT architecture is one of the most powerful BIM (Building Information Modeling) program in current building industry. There are many books available for REVIT architecture. However, it is very unlikely that beginners are able to learn BIM program throughout books.

This course is very short intensive course, which is consist of 12 sessions. Each session is scheduled for 2 hours.

Participants will learn the principal theory of BIM (Building Information Modeling), basic 2D & 3D tools, as well as critical program interface and settings from this course.
