Course DescriptionThrough lecture and demonstration, this hands-on workshop introduces the basic concepts and tools of Revit, a building information modeling program for architects and interior designers. Students are introduced to Revit's powerful 3D model organization to visualize, present, and create construction documents. Students will learn how this unique software enables design professionals to save time and reduce errors since design changes are automatically coordinated throughout the entire model and drawing set.
All CAD courses assume knowledge of drafting principles and basic PC (Windows) computer skills. Advanced CAD courses assume knowledge of the application as defined in the introductory course.
All computer courses are taught on a Windows platform in computer labs. Mac users may download Mac-compatible versions of AutoCAD, Photoshop, Illustrator, SketchUp/SketchUp Pro and Podium for laptop or home use, but will be responsible for learning mouse clicks or keystroke conversion independently. There are currently no Mac versions of Revit or 3ds Max Design. Mac users may work in a Windows partition using Parallels or other Windows emulation software.
Lab hours are not available; therefore, students must have access to their own hardware and software for the courses in which they enroll.
PrerequisitesX 468.20 Digital Presentation I: Photoshop/Illustrator. Software requirement: The most recent version of Revit Architecture. A student version of the AutoDesk software will be provided for free upon proof of student status. Review CAD course requirements.
