Autodesk BIM is an intelligent model-based process that helps owners and service providers achieve business results by enabling more accurate, accessible, and actionable insight throughout project execution and life cycle.
BIM changes the way companies work—both internally and externally. Projects have become more and more complex, requiring firms to manage and share immense amounts of data across diverse and distributed teams.
By enabling greater insight into the project at any point in its life cycle, BIM helps AEC service providers to improve accuracy, efficiency, and productivity, resulting in time and cost savings.
The significant value-added benefits that BIM-ready firms can provide include faster project approvals, more predictable outcomes, sustainable design and analysis services, and improved collaboration and information sharing for integrated project delivery strategies.
About The Course
To take full advantage of Building Information Modelling, this Autodesk® Revit® Structure Essentials training course has been designed to teach the concepts and principles from building design through construction documentation using the Autodesk Revit Structure software.
This training course is intended to introduce students to the software’s user interface and the basic building components that make the Autodesk Revit Structure software a powerful and flexible structural modeling tool.
Our goal is to familiarize you with the tools necessary to create, document, and print your parametric model. Examples and practices are designed to reflect as many different building types as possible.
The difference using Revit Structure is to make the construction phase much easier by saving time and much more advantages such as :
Modeling the building component.
Setting-up building levels.
Setting-up a grid of columns matching the architectural space through the BIM system.
Structural columns design.
Expected required quantities of the foundation materials.
The smooth linkage between architectural & Structural works, Using the BIM system to accomplish all the works in parallel to save money & time.
1- Getting started :
What is the BIM SYSTEM?
Dealing with User Interface.
Using template files.
2- Starting a project in Revit :
Get some fundamentals with a simple design.
What are Levels?
Creating a project’s levels.
3- Creating the building elements :
Using walls, floors, roof, doors, windows, stairs…etc.
modifying and changing elements parameters.
4- Documenting the project :
Making a project shots with the camera .
Sections and legend.
