Product Description

The objective of the Autodesk Revit 2018 Architecture: Fundamentals course is to enable students to create full 3D architectural project models and set them up in working drawings. This course focuses on basic tools that the majority of users need.

This course is designed to teach you the Autodesk Revit functionality as you would work with it throughout the design process. You begin by learning about the user interface and basic drawing, editing, and viewing tools. Then you learn design development tools including how to model walls, doors, windows, floors, ceilings, stairs and more. Finally, you learn the processes that take the model to the construction documentation phase.
