Project Management - Introduction to Revit and Building Information Modelling (BIM)

Hours: 7.00
Cost (£): 575.00

Course Overview

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.
