Course Information for Students
Who is this course for?
This practical course will instruct you on how to draw a 3D model in Revit. You will learn how to produce sections, elevations from the model and print out working drawings to scale. You will also input and output data from the drawing, including schedules, specifications of materials and components, quantities and cost information. In addition, you will export data into a spreadsheet for further manipulation. You do not need any CAD experience to make the most of this course.
The course is aimed at anyone employed in or aspiring to roles in architecture, quantity surveying and construction management.
