Course description

Revit Structure Fundamentals

Revit Structure Fundamentals is a 3 day hands-on practical course that will teach the student the main structural components that make Revit Structure a powerful and flexible engineering modelling tool. The objective is to familiarise students with the necessary tools to create, document and print the parametric model. Students will be taken through the basics to a full Revit Structure project from linking in an architectural model to construction documents.

Suitability - Who should attend?

This course is for new users of Revit Structure who wish to start using the program as soon as possible. Students should have knowledge of structural engineering, its terminology and practices. Ideally you should have an understanding of other Autodesk products such as AutoCAD or an understanding of CAD concepts and a reasonable understanding of Microsoft Windows.

Outcome / Qualification etc.

Everything we do is authorised by Autodesk—the writers of Revit Structure Software. Included in the price of your course will be:-

  • An Autodesk Official Training Manual with practical exercises and supporting Revit Structure files/examples.
