Description

Do you use AutoCAD or Sketchup, but want to move into the latest Building Information Modeling software that all the major architecture firms and developers are using? Having a hard time getting off the AutoCAD dinosaur train? Want to save drafting time and use a program that coordinates your changes to populate instantly? By learning Revit for Interior Designers you can easily change all that.

Interior Design with Revit is a series of step-by-step video tutorials that show anyone -- even a total beginner -- how to effectively use Revit as an Interior Designer. You will learn the entire process of modeling hotel room interiors; starting from scratch and finishing with sending your deliverable to your clients.

When you sign up, you immediately get access to the member’s area where you can join our BIM Master online and take each lesson at your own pace. Through these engaging, short tutorials, you’ll learn how to draft 2-D and 3-D starting with the fundamentals.  We promise that it’s not as complicated as it sounds. Most Revit courses are intimidating and don't teach an Interior Designer what they REALLY need to know to be effective on the job. By the end of this course you will know the beginner basics of Revit and be ready to work on client projects.

Who is the target audience?
  • Students
  • Profesionals who want to start learning Revit
  • Someone who knows Revit but wants to learn Interior Design in Revit
  • Interior Designers
