Product Description

Autodesk Revit software is a powerful and flexible engineering modeling tool. This course is intended to introduce students to the software’s user interface and the basic HVAC, electrical, and piping/plumbing components. This course will also familiarize students with the tools required to create, document, and print the parametric model. The examples and practices are designed to take the students through the basics of a full MEP project from linking in an architectural model to construction documents.
