Autodesk Revit 2017 Architecture: Conceptual Design & Visualization

Autodesk Revit 2017 Architecture: Conceptual Design & Visualization Course Description

Duration: 1.00 days (8 hours)

As architects and designers start a project, they frequently think about the overall massing of a building or the area of the footprint. The Autodesk Revit software, using its powerful Building Information Modeling (BIM) engine, includes tools for creating mass elements that can be modified into many shapes. You can then apply walls, roofs, and floors to them to continue designing. You can also access space planning tools for setting up areas for rooms and also applying colors for them to show the connections. For presentations, you can create, embellish, and render perspective views.

The objective of the Autodesk Revit 2017 Architecture: Conceptual Design & Visualization student guide is to enable students who have worked with the Autodesk Revit software to expand their knowledge in the areas of Conceptual Design, including massing studies, space planning, visualization, and rendering.
