Architectural Design with Revit
Are you interested in
becoming a Building Information Modeling (BIM) master in your area? At the end
of this course, Autodesk will certify you and we will recognize you as an expert
in Revit practices. Because of its ability to integrate data throughout the
entire project lifecycle, BIM has become the industry standard for
architectural design and other sectors. This course takes you on the first
steps in your learning journey, teaching you the skills you'll need to start
designing buildings in Revit with accuracy and precision, from small to large.
Solid documentation and
communication with project teams are also important for project success, and
you will learn about these best-practice workflows to use in Revit. Follow a
structured lesson plan with accompanying datasets to gain hands-on experience
with tools critical to your professional development. With the exercises and
challenging assignments that come with this course, you can put your new skills
to the test and put your knowledge to the test.
Revit is Autodesk's
industry-leading Building Information Modeling program, allowing architects to
create coordinated and consistent model-based designs efficiently. It also has
the powerful uniqueness of connecting various project teams, such as
architects, structural engineers, electrical, mechanical, and plumbing
engineers, and others, on a single interface to manage and coordinate the
project with complete control.
The course lessons are
project-based, so you'll be able to start, work on, and finish any
architectural design project from schematic designs to design development to
construction document production with ease.
Who is this course for?
To be able to succeed in this course, regardless of your industry, you must be proficient in computer use. To join this course, you must be or be related to:
- BIM Specialists
- BIM Managers
- Construction Design Reviewers
- Design Engineers
- Construction Professionals

What will you learn
First you will learn the basic terms and terminology of Revit, and then how to install the software.
Next, we will take you through the software interface, how to set up a project and its information.
We will then begin our first project; it is a small single-storey house. In this project you will learn how to set the datum levels, place the external and internal walls, place doors, windows, ground slab and roof. I will show you how to create various roof types that you can apply to any building type, including a roof by extrusion.
I will then take you through the basics of the structural side of Revit, creating a simple structural model.
We then move on to the main two storey project where we create our own bespoke wall, floor, door and window types.
We will then create curtain walls, stairs and railings as well we will show you different ways to view the project.
Next you will learn how to generate conceptual mass, how to create your own families with parameters and bespoke materials.
You will then learn how to create the site by generating the topography, creating the building, adding roads and footpaths and adding site furniture and materials.
We will then annotate the project with text, dimensions, rooms, colour fill legends, tags and area plans. You will be taught how to create your own text and dimension styles as well as your own tags.
We will then prepare elevation views, sections and callout details. we take you through the process of how to generate 2D renders, video walkthroughs, how to control the sun and shadows as well as a one day solar study.
You will then be shown how to create room, window and door schedules as well as a material takeoff schedule of our wall type so we can price the job.
We will then set up our sheets to send our project off to print.
Lastly, we will look at project management. How to create our own project templates, view templates, project phasing, design options and work-sharing.
