The Autodesk Revit for Structural Engineering course is delivered by one of BIM Academy’s registered ATC Instructors using a combination of presentations, interactive sessions and videos to provide a comprehensive and stimulating three day course. You will begin by learning the basic 3D modelling tools and progress to producing a structural BIM with full project documentation by the third day. In addition you will be introduced to the Revit construction phasing tool and cover the key principles of object library creation.


Underlying knowledge of Structural design, Drafting or Engineering practises is recommended. Experience of using CAD packages is advantageous but not essential. Delegates should have a working understanding of Microsoft Windows.
