Revit Structure Essentials

Revit offers many advantages over traditional CAD for structural design. However, those benefits are only available to those who understand how to use the software effectively. And although Revit is a different way of working, learning it does not have to be difficult. If you need to quickly learn how to produce structural models and projects using Revit, you will gain all these skills in our 2-day Revit Structure Essentials course.

Course content for Autodesk Revit Structure Essentials

  • Understand the Revit user interface and its basic drawing and editing tools 
  • Understand parametric elements, grids, and levels and how they control the positon of elements in your project
  • Link CAD files and Revit models 
  • Add levels to define floor-to-floor heights 
  • Add structural grids to provide locations for structural columns 
  • Place structural columns, work with Revit's structural families 
  • Add structural foundations, floors and roofs 
  • Create steel and concrete beams, modify beam properties, create bracing
  • Create the all-important plans, elevations and sections of your model to document the details directly from your 3D model
  • Understand callout views, elevation and 3D section views 
  • Create and modify basic structural schedules 
  • Annotate details using detail lines, text, tags, callouts, symbols and hatch patterns  
  • Bring in new sheets, place views on sheets for floor plans, elevations, sections, 3D views 
  • Understand printing options and best practices
  • Produce PDFs and plotted outputs 

Benefits of Revit Training

Describe building information modelling and its benefits
Start new projects, create levels, import files, and use column grids
Work with structural walls, sections, and elevations
Create structural floors and framing, floor decks, foundation slabs, footings, and beam systems

Expected outcome

As a result of attending this training, you will be able to start a structural project in Revit, work with structural grids and columns, add slabs, foundations and walls, create structural framing, work with views for both 2D and 3D design, create schedules and details, and produce full construction documentation. 

After completing the course, you can log into your personal student account and download your official Autodesk Certificate of Completion.
