Autodesk Revit Advanced


This course covers many of the advanced features of the entire Revit platform.

Building Information Modeling (BIM) is an approach to the entire building life cycle. Autodesk® Revit® Architecture, Autodesk® Revit® MEP, and Autodesk® Revit® Structure are powerful BIM programs that support the ability to coordinate, update, and share design data with team members throughout the design, construction, and management phases of a building’s life. A key component in managing the BIM process is to establish a company foundation for different types of projects by creating standard templates and custom elements. Having this in place makes the process of any new project flow smoothly and efficiently.


The objective of the Autodesk Revit Collaboration Tools training guide is to enable students who have a basic knowledge of Autodesk Revit to increase their productivity while working with other people on a team, either in the same firm or other firms, and while working with Autodesk Revit files or other CAD files.
