Learning Revit Structure 2015

Video Description

In this Revit Structure 2015 training course, expert author Tim Dundr will teach you the fundamentals of building information modeling for structural engineering. This course is designed for the absolute beginner, meaning no prior experience with Revit or other CAD/BIM software is required.
You will start with a tour of the user interface and learn about the new features in Structure 2015. Tim will then teach you the basic creation and editing tools, then move on to showing you how to start a structural project. This video tutorial will also cover how to work with views, set up levels and grids, and add columns and walls to your model. You will learn how to add a foundation, create structural reinforcement, and place beams and framing. Tim will also teach you how to create floor systems and shaft openings, add detailing, and use Worksharing. Finally, you will learn how to export images and create a walkthrough for presentations.
Once you have completed this computer based training course, you will have developed the knowledge necessary to use the tools and techniques in Revit Structure to create your own models. Working files are included, allowing you to follow along with the author throughout the lessons.
