Maximum 20 seats available

Description
This five-week long course is an introduction to the fundamentals of 3D computer drafting based on Revit Architecture 2010 with a focus specifically on interior design. Students learn the concepts of Building Information Modeling (BIM) and how the strength of the software, Revit Architecture, is employed to automate the design and the documentation process. Students explore the basic interface, tools, and 3D model creation.

Learning Objectives
The primary objective of this course is to teach students the concepts of BIM and introduce the tools for parametric building design and documentation using Revit Architecture 2010. After completing this course, students should be able to:

- Define BIM and differentiate BIM and CAD
- Understand the interface of Revit Architecture
- Understand how a Revit project is structured.
- Navigate the various views of a project using the project browser.
- Understand how Revit creates objects.
- Create a range of basic building components.
- Use working drawing tools for notation, scheduling, and dimensioning.
- Create print sets.

Prerequisites
Architectural or interior design experience using AutoCAD is highly recommended.
