Autodesk Revit 2021 Complete Beginners Guide
What you'll learn
- Autodesk Revit Software
- Building Design
- Creating 3D Floor Plans
This course is aimed at those with absolutely no prior experience in Autodesk Revit. It is also helpful to those who may have tried to learn the software in the past but forgotten how to use it.
The course is designed to get you up & running with Revit quickly by teaching you the things you need to know without long-winded explanations of techniques and commands that are no longer used. It's recorded using Revit 2021 but can be used to learn any version of Revit from 2018.
As a CAD engineer with over 25 years of industry experience, I have taught many people to use various CAD software over the years. I still use CAD software every day on major engineering projects and am shocked when I see the items still being taught in schools, books, and other online courses.
You do not need to enroll on a 2-year course, read a 500-page book or enroll on an online course that is over 15 hours long. Much of this is padding to make the course look more comprehensive by teaching commands that nobody actually uses in the workplace.
Revit can have a reputation of being complicated but much of this is down to the fact that so many are teaching out of date techniques. Also, many of the teaching materials insist on beginning the course by explaining what every single button and command does which is unnecessary and tedious. Other courses like to start each chapter with a new example and this constant restarting means the student never produces anything substantial and easily gets bored.
Over the years I have refined my method of teaching CAD software so that I only teach the techniques that are required and none of the outdated methods that you will never need. My method of teaching is not just to describe each command separately but to get the student up and running early in the course creating a realistic project. This project will grow as different commands are introduced and in this way the student can see clearly how the different techniques are actually used rather than just copying small examples.
You will begin the course with a description of a project and learn how to create your own building model which will be added to and refined as your knowledge grows and new commands are introduced. By the end of this course, you will have produced a fully complete 3D building model to a standard that would be acceptable in any workplace. You will learn BIM techniques that will allow automatic production of schedules and documentation.
Throughout the course I am available should you get stuck to answer any questions you may have.
I look forward to introducing you to this software and getting you up and running quickly.
**Please Note: This course was recorded on the PC version of Revit. If you use a MAC then the commands and locations may vary. I do not have a MAC so am unable to help with this but a quick Google search should help you.**
Who this course is for:
- Anyone that wants to learn to use Autodesk Revit
- Complete Beginners to CAD Software
- People switching to Revit from other CAD Software such as AutoCAD
- Revit users that would like to expand their knowledge
I have over 23 years of experience as a Draughtsman & CAD Designer in a wide variety of disciplines and am an Autodesk Certified Professional in AutoCAD for Design and Drafting. I started on a drawing board learning traditional drafting skills and witnessed the introduction of CAD software into the industry. Originally starting on the very basic AutoCAD release 10 I have used every version of AutoCAD since as well as adding various other CAD software. This has given me a unique insight into how best to utilize these great tools in the real-world environment.
Over the course of my career, I've trained countless people in the use of these tools and as most of this training was geared towards getting staff members up & running with this software as quickly as possible, I developed a method that gets my students actually creating drawings straight away. We then gradually add more advanced techniques as we go.
"I look forward to helping you get started and working with you over the course of your development."
