Course Description

In this course we will use the tools of Revit to model a building using the structural tools Columns, Beams, Foundations, Floors, Slabs

and also we will take about Reinforcement of different structural elements

as beginning we will have an introduction to Building information modeling and Revit

then you will know how to start modelling by adding the levels and grids or to use an Autocad file as an underlay to your work

next comes adding all the structural elements :






then finally we will discuss adding the reinforcement to different types of elements manually or by using the Revit extentions

Enjoy your first steps with me

What are the requirements?

  • Download and install Revit 2015 or Revit structure 2015
  • Download and install Revit Extensions 2015

What am I going to get from this course?

  • Make a full 3D BIM structural model
  • Add reinforcement to different structural elements
