BIM Training of Revit Software

Overview

Over the last 5 years Building Information Modeling (BIM), has largely replaced the 2D Computer Assisted Drafting (CAD) systems used in the offices of most architects. The most popular BIM tool is called Revit and is made by Autodesk, Inc. In order to remain competitive and meet client expectations firms must abandon the traditional 2D approach and embrace the new 3D BIM approach.

Goal

At the end of this program attendees will have all the skills required to

  • Develop new BIM models
  • Use historical 2D CAD project files as basis for 3D BIM models
  • Create 2D documentation from BIM models
  • Create 2D presentation graphics from BIM models
  • Transfer\Share 3D BIM models with Consultants
  • Transfer\Share 3D BIM models with Clients
  • Extract and leverage information in model

Methodology

Training sessions are comprised of lecture style demonstrations, group discussion and hands-exercises. Phase 1-Project Based training will primarily be hands-on exercises focused on model creation and creation of associated documentation. The model built during training exercises will be based on one of your actual projects so participants are forced to address challenges of real world projects. The selected project can be an active project or a recently completed project. Phase 2-Principal and Project Manager Training will be a full day demonstration and discussion of topics related to managing BIM\Revit projects, including a hands-on session covering essential skills such as opening files, dimensioning, printing and exporting. Phase 3-Advanced Training is scheduled once the project is underway and each session is tailored to topics relevant to the active project. Group discussions are held to discuss how projects are progressing and optimum approaches to project completion using Revit software.

Who Should Attend

The program is design to help design firms transition from a 2D CAD workflow to a 3D BIM workflow. The program is designed to meet the needs of different roles within and organization. All those directly involved designing the building or managing the project should attend the appropriate role-based session.
